I just reviewed my UBN from CQWW CW and noted that I had 2 NILs from 
stateside stations.  This has happened before and I know it happens to 
many of us regularly.  We wind up losing a country and/or zone mult in 
the process.

I know some guys, like NQ4I (he's not the one that didn't log me), have 
complained about an unusually high number of 0 pointers calling, but if 
someone calls you, you should log it.  Right?

How about another solution to the problem, such as giving automatic 
credit for one's own country and the zones it contains?  For example, US 
guys get credit for W and zones 3, 4 and 5.  DLs get DL and zone 14, BYs 
get BY and zones 23 and 24.  Or should there be some kind of penalty to 
the non-logger, if there seems to be a pattern of non-logging of 0 pointers?
