Re: To A, or not to A = that is the question
Everyone has his or her own purpose for being in the contest. The Illinois Marathon takes place in my city every year in April. I like to stand along the route and cheer the participants with some friends. I notice that there are many participants who are there in an attempt to win. There are also a lot of participants who just want to get through the race, to say they were in a marathon.
Contest with your own purpose in mind. The guys with the huge stations want to win. Guys like me with little stations just want to have fun. The point of a contest, in general, is to win. But not everyone has that goal. I cannot find fault with either. Do what you want, but get on the air in the contests!
Note, my "little station" on VHF+ has garnered me a position in the top three as a Single-Op QRP Portable in many ARRL contests, and first place in that category once.
