I don't  think it has anything to do with copying CW.  It has to do with  fat
fingers and guys like me who learned hunt and peck typing.  I  sometimes hit
the "O" instead of the "0" in normal operation.  Heck,  they're right there
next to each other.

My 2  cents.

Actually, there seem to be three contributing factors:
1.) Fat fingers typing 0 instead of O
2.) Mis-copied callsigns
3.) Stations responding to spots without confirming the call with their own  
It would be interesting to know the percentage of each!
