[CQ-Contest] Log Checking and Dupes?

Personally I'd leave it in the log.

It's possible that you DID work him and he mis-logged 
YOU (then he'll get penalized).  If you work/log him 
twice, there's no penalty for a dupe.

Of course, it is possible that you didn't really work 
him (perhaps you only thought he came back to you) and 
in that case, well, you'll get penalized.

As I said, I would leave it in the log and take my 
chances/lumps.  But that's me.

PeoplePC:  It's for people. And it's just smart.
