 Hi Steve,

In response to your request for an example: UT5UGR


Speaking purely as a private citizen, I can assure you that no log checking
group has achieved perfection. All log checkers can benefit from an outside
set of eyes to: 1) vet checking errors and 2) identify bad actors that
remain undetected. We got real lucky in the case of UGR, whose years of
cheating would have gone without penalty had it not been for the
availability of open logs.

Keep this in perspective guys; you're not being asked to post your tax
returns or brokerage statements.

73, John, K1AR
