[CQ-Contest] Whither CQ WW?

OK, I'll bite.  I briefly operated CQWW SSB remotely at a friend's 
station yesterday, and was appalled by the small number of spots being 
generated.  Take a look at DXSummit for W3LPL, who appears to be multi-2 
this year.  Up until 15 minutes ago, since they went to 15 and 10 at 
1200Z, where you can assume they are running constantly, I count only 16 
spots (in 3+ hours).

What is really sad is that somewhere around half the QSOs in CQWW are 
made using N1MM Logger+, which has a one-check Config menu option to 
"spot all S&P QSOs."  It costs you nothing, in effort or anything else, 
to enable this option, and has no effect on your Unassisted status if 
you turn it on.

73, Pete N4ZR
