"Hits" I have taken after I learned how my logs are really scored.......
1.  somehow, the other guy's mistakes become mine.
2.  somehow, because ONE contact wants an HS in his log, which he never
sends in, has  negative repercussions on me.   I still get a lot of that.
3.  somehow, the HUGE continent of Asia is often equated to EU.
4.  distance between contacts does not matter.

I still have fun, but I admit I feel lots less enthusiastic about actually
entering as a contestant.
