I hope some of these guys finally get the message: not qsling does not   
pay off. I've been using a similar tactics in my casual contesting, and I   
am sure I am not the only one. Yankee Clipper guys and the ON4UN contest   
team (to name just a few) will get my qso points every time because they   
bother to respond to cards. On the other hand, due to poor qsling   
practices, I even refuse to work certain countries anymore. Only when   
their point totals start dropping will these people get the message. It   
is time everybody took a stand: refuse to work qso-machines that don't
