Whew, we made it through another contest without 599.  Everything seemed to work
okay nonetheless.  Except me.  I always suffer a loss of self-esteem when I'm
told my signal isn't 599.  This is the major issue I have with FT8 signal
reports.  That kind of honesty is unnerving and discouraging.  I want a gold
star for every QSO.

I remember a comment on ubiquitous 59(9) signal reports in QST many years ago. 
If you can't copy a station but want to preserve his or her self-esteem, send a
49(9) or even a 39(9) (just to be safe).  That way they won't suffer needlessly
and you have an out when you can't copy them.  A humane approach.
