I still like it when the other station sends QRL ?
If I am looking for a potential run freq, and hear this, I will answer 
Then I have a nice run frq that someone else has taken the time to 
check out for me.

and as to legalities:
I'll bet if we went into Lord Riley's house and looked at his pillows,
we wouldn't find very many of those tags still affixed.
You know, that tag that says "Do not remove under penalty of Federal Law"?

So, given that probability, is lord Riley really the kind of fox we 
want watching us chickens?
