Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention that I also checked K4IK and W8IK. More zeros. 
Any other calls I should check ? And, by the way, that goes back to 1991 - the 
earliest logs I have uploaded to LoTW.

So, by your own admission, most of your contesting was done in the days of 
logs. That clearly makes you an expert in assessing the current state of log 
checking, with statements like "There are plenty of tools if they get off their 
fat, lazy, old asses and make their own analysis of log submissions."

Joe, you're a smart guy, as evidenced by your excellent support for the 
products, but you're out of your element to be making judgments on the state of 
contest log checking.
