At least in the Calif QSO Party (CQP), you will not loose anything if the 
other guys messes up.  Its very easy to see this happen since we only use
computer correllation to spot errors, and use PEOPLE to interpret (judge)

The only way you can loose a valid QSO is if the other guy deletes it from 
his log. This might happen if he sees it as a dupe. For that reason everyone

should always work and log the dupes !!

Also, in the case where you blow the other guys call, in CQP you do not have

a 4 QSO penalty. A callsign copy error is treated the same as any other 
copying error and the worst case is you loose only that Q.

Not really "Hearing Voices", but in the pre-computer era - in my case
before 1988 - I had problems to relax when taking a break or after
the contest. While in bed both my fingers and my brain kept sending
"test de SM1CNS test K" over and over again...
