This is the precise reason I will normally log a dupe.  If in doubt log
it again.  Why fight over the Q?  Most people seem to have computer
logging and dupes have gone way down.  I would rather work the dupes and
not have other stations afraid to call me because we make them feel bad
because it is a dupe.
