I apologize.  In the light of this post, I understand it better now.  I 
took what you wrote literally.

Agreed.  Nothing wrong with disagreement.

Thank you.  If I insulted you, I am sorry.  While I was chastising you 
for what I misunderstood, I did not mean to insult.  Perhaps I could have 
used more tact.  I just get a sense that some folks are more worried 
about rates and scores than accuracy and making sure the other guy gets 
his points too.  That is what got me hot.

Thank you.

It is easier then you think with that mp3 recorder and SB. You only have to
check contacts that you are in doubt with and that RecAll program has time
stamps in sync with your computer clock. If we talk about 10-20 contacts to
checked it would only take 10-20 minutes.
