  * LEADERBOARD SCORING AT T32C: Michael/G7VJR and Marios/5B4WN from the
"Club Log" web page<http://www.clublog.org>  report the following:
  "During the T32C expedition, a large number of stations have succeeded
in working the maximum number of slots possible, or share the same number
of slots as a large number of other stations. Using the 'first past the
post' scoring system, those who worked these slots first are ranked
highest. Duplicates count negatively.
  This scoring system has been manipulated by a small number of stations
operating illegally. They have determined that by using someone else's
callsign and working T32C, they can create duplicates and force that
callsign down the leaderboard.
  Ranking changes -- In response to this problem, the scoring system for
the T32C is changing to a ranking that does not penalize duplicate QSOs.
This removes the loophole that is being exploited. This change will be
made live on 19th October, with the agreement of the T32C expedition
team, to improve the fairness of the scoring."


I really thing this whole ClubLog/leaderboard thing has gotten out of hand.
People are actually CHEATING to improve their scores....amazing.
