You are saying this might have been inspired by someone who needed to make
sure his "easy" zone mult would not go up in smoke, I guess...


Someone is not logging QSOs, they are being a jackass - in my humble

EVERYONE is scoring by computer - why in the heck is there reason to leave
it out - it is not like it is WORK if it is in...just like I cannot see the
reason to not log dupes...the computer takes em out for you score  wise it
is no big deal anymore...in the days of #2 pencils and op aide 6 I sort of
understand the logic but most of us have not done contest logging that way
in about 15 or 20 years, no?

Are people embarrassed by 0 point QSOs...if so they better look in the
mirror and ask themselves if they would like THEIR QSOs left out of the

Me thinks something stinks...
