"If you aint' cheatin', you ain't tryin'" is a popular sports saying.

Why cheat at all?  There is no monitory benefit to winning a contest.
Admiration of your fellow contesters might follow a massive score but you
know it isn't legit.  Honest mistakes such as putting a station in your log
that you thought you worked but they didn't get your call right happens.
Having the power on your radio drift a little so you're running 1600 watts
rather than 1500 can happen but the busted QSO will be caught and the extra
100 watts won't make a material difference in your signal or score.

So, please explain why cheat?
