There is a simple solution that takes "just don't work them" a step
further.  Note their callsign, don't work them - and then don't work
them in subsequent contests.  The pros who sign after every QSO, I'll
always stick around and try to work.  The "QRZed-ers" seem to have
plenty of guys to QSO - I don't need to stick around to help 'em
out with another contact, I'm just adding noise to their pileup. 

I get the feeling, given this topic seems to be debated yearly
that the "QRZed-ers" are not reading the bitching about it
on the contest reflector, or you'd think the message would have
arrived by now.
