Been hit by it "not in log" while I know I worked the station. 

Time to remove the 3 QSO "PENALTIES"
They are illogical, have no parallel in real life tests and causing of 
scratching unsure QSOs and penalizing the other station by creating not in log 
The argument of "teaching us the lesson" of logging carefully is just plain 
Bad QSO is just bad QSO and should be removed, not counted, period.
Time to mature!!!

Oh, and add ONE point for domestic - own country QSOs in CQ WW. Another 
overdue and timely change for better!
