[CQ-Contest] CQWW and Signal Reports

I've just completed a token single-band entry on 10m, with
some 300 QSOs replying to other CQ calls.  In all cases my
exchange was "Thanks one four", except very occasionally
when I added "five nine" - it's hard to kick the habit of
a lifetime.

No-one asked for a signal report.  They didn't need it
because contest reports are always 59, they have no meaning
or significance or value, the logging software had already
entered 59, and we all know that signal reports are not
cross-checked in CQWW logs.

Is it time to do away with RS(T) in CQWW, or is it already

Hi Paul,

Looks as you have some 300 unvalid qso=B4s logged.
I did about 1500 contacts and received and sent the signal
report in ALL cases, otherwise I would have asked.
Even with the switched off AGC because of the noise, I send
my 59.
To me it was not optional, but could be omitted,
