Delete the QSO .... that is not what you were pushing for a few years ago:

Speaking statistically: If I make an error in W7WHY call by writing
W7WSY that is an error in one letter and not all five letters, which
seem to be indicated by crossing that whole call out (and applying
penalty of 3 more callsigns). By him having my call in his log
correctly, he verifies that we had QSO (no cheating here) - purpose of
the contest. Isn't then taking the other remaining 4 letters out
already a penalty? Error rate should be calculated by taking number of
all the letters in all the callsigns against the miscopied
letters. Isn't it how we calculate errors at the code exams?
