It appears that someone has put their money where you mouth is, and is
sponsoring the world's first plaque for the highest score of an S&P only
score in the Stew Perry contest.
Stand by for more details.

Lets see now... If only 10 stations call CQ, then they will all work a thousand or so stations and the S/Pers will be in gigantic pile-ups to net only 10 QSO's.(and eventually give up).
The thing that makes a CQ'er S&P, is knowing that there are casual CQ'ers that come on the band and then go away. To win you must find and work those stations.
Maybe we need an s/p only, no computer, QRP class that only operates during daylight hours. That would reduce the QRM.
