I couldn't agree with you more.  "Elitist" was exactly the word I was 
thinking of when I read the initial messages on this topic.  The owner 
of this list needs to make up his mind on who is to be here and what 
"hard-core DX" is.  Is it MW only since that is said to be most 
difficult, which I do not agree with.  This is a hobby and IMO it is 
the job of hobbyists to promote the hobby not exclude others from 
learning.  This will be a very lonely list if you go ahead with the 
rules as suggested.
