Guns, Radios, Baseball, Football, Golf, ANY sport has its cheats and cheaters. This is a tool and if used as intended I see no problem with it. There are separate award categories for CW, Digital, and voice already in place. Attacking the person that put in the work to develop it is what is "unfair". How can I compete with a station using power amps and beam antennas on high towers? Have you been on the digital frequency's? Forget making any low power contacts till the big boys get their fill and move aside. Things change and the old regime is always there to protest change. Remember the "NO CODE HAM" And just look at how surface mounted disposable electronics has changed the whole concept of being in ham radio today. Who home builds builds radios now? I know Extra class hams that cant even solder on a coax connector. Hey ... it they are happy and enjoy the hobby I am happy for having them in it. The ham radio hobby has changed into nothing more than appliance operators. And what is wrong with that? Any Award is only worth the effort put forth to get it. Someone cheating and lying to get an award does NOT cheapen the personal worth of any award I have earned. So lets all just back off the soap box and worry about the real problems with Ham Radio today. Like getting enough hams without grey hair to keep our privileges in the future.
