That's my point Dave. The reason behind someone doing something that could be perceived as a route for cheating needs to be revealed (even if it's only to the officials) so that possibility can be explored and the spirit regained.
On the flip side, if you have an event where a target can be pulled for a reason that 3 or so people give, and it's a team, and one misses, what is to stop someone texting someone else in the team to say than when you get to target X, miss it, and call it, and it will get pulled.
