Hey Jim-Bob...hold down your lunch...

My first impression is to handle it like this:

Tell the other guy "yeah, you're in the log"...and then delete him!

No prob.

But then I got to thinking...well, maybe it's not really a log-
massage issue, maybe it's a post-contest-tweak-the-other-guy 

It could be some jerk US MM station that received the email from 
another US station who was asking the question because the jerk 
US MM station has been known to not log US QSOs...even after 
being told the mult was needed...

Because this happened to me, and I got penalized for the jerk's 
failure to log me, I can understand the question being asked...but it 
wasn't me this time.  I no longer look at the UBN/NIL/EIEIO reports 
because of the increased blood pressure it can cause, and don't 
worry if stuff gets removed from my log...either by my fault or the 
other guy's.

(No offense intended toward any MM station, unless you're the one 
that screwed me...and you know who you are!)

Of course, the proper action would be to not respond to such an 
email until after the log submission deadline...then it's open 
season, let your conscience be your guide!
