Hi Jay.  I have the same problem here with people getting my call wrong. 
 When operating CW contests, I am constantly having people work me as 
W7WSY instead of W7WHY.  Most of the time I try to correct it, but lots 
of time it doesn't get done.  I'm with you, I should get credit for the 
contact, but the other stations shouldn't.
