You are very wrong.
The word contest was used by whoever created CQ Contests, but they could
have been named "QSO Parties" or "Get on the air events".
Contests are only made possible by those who just do what Cain's listed.
The rest (Competition) is just an illusion probably only 10% of the
entrants buy.
A big portion of the efforts of log checking (Countless hours) are spent to
detect cheating by so called "Competitors".
The vast majority (Fortunately), simply turn on the radios and have fun AND
are generous enough to send in their logs.
