 bit uneasy about the completeness of the QSO if the running
 station 'acknowledges' my report by simply
 sending his callsign to solicit the next QSO.  I WANT
 acknowledgement.  I want recognition that what I sent has been
 received.  A callsign doesn't cut it for me. Throw me a bone, be
 it an "R" or "TU" or whatever, but not just the callsign.

I CAN ONLY SECOND THAT!!!  Please think about it. The scenario as described by
ve3bmv ("I will ask for fills when I need one") is just not watertight. It can
be disturbed by QRM or whatever. If I look at the LOTS of wrong calls people
have me in their log with ( I know that from the UBN-report) I really feel
that a little acknowledgement is not wasted time but instead good operating
