The number of times this is repeated and emphasized, you guys must be 
right. I must have missed this section of the WSJT-X instructions.

How do I activate this built-in 'WSJT-X Honor Roll inducting macro'? 
Serious question, since some of you seem so sure of what you are saying.

As for the possible single contact WSJT-X may complete 'on its own', 
provided the operator checks the "Enable TX", let's use the worst 
possible scenario. The 'robot' worked a P5 or Bouvet.

This single contact can be discarded, or is the 'robot' also going to 
include it in your DXCC application without your knowledge? Who is 
responsible for the integrity of your DXCC achievements?

There are robots out there. At least one self-declared, others 
suspected, based on their 'operating routine'.

Feel free not to 'connect' to them. If you worked a robot unknowingly, 
there was no 'cheating' on your part. It makes no material difference 
whether an intelligent robot, or a dumb operator, was at the controls on 
the other side.
