[CQ-Contest] Sending callsigns

During S & P, I will give the DX station 2 or maybe 3 contacts
to identify. If he does not, I dump in my call and ask for his.
That is faster for me because I am usually able to prevail
in S & P, especially for close in stuff.  If it is dupe, I figure 
it is THEIR problem.  When other people do the same,
if their minds are still functioning, they usually figure out
that it is in their best interest to identify more often.
