hmmm...I wonder why are we discussing all this, now that my bitterness have eroded a bit and I am returning to my senses. what are we gaining out of it? I am not asking, not to, I am just trying to understand where we are heading. Will all this bring in any change to the outlook of IAPLC participants? Will there be any amendment in the contest rules to prevent all this trickery? Or, will this circus run year after year and we will strive harder and eagerly participate and then more eagerly wait for the results and then shout from the nearest and tallest rooftop about discrimination, injustice, trickery, photo shop etc etc. If later is teh case then I see no reason to pursue this thread anymore.
