If you NIL the contacts, it WILL get noticed by the log check and your log 
will probably be disqualified.

The problem with the rule is that zone and country multiplier credit count 
for the other stations.  If you are loud and running, you will get called 
and log a lot of zero pointers.  You need to live with it.  Changing the 
rules to one pointers would really change the fabric of the whole contest. 
It is supposed to be a DX contest...
