[CQ-Contest] No more "QRZed?"

I only spent a few hours in the WPX SSB this weekend, but I was very 
frustrated with the number of stations who would finish a contest QSO and 
then simply say: "QRZed?".

This sort of poor operating technique makes me want to crawl through the 
radio and throttle the guy on the other end. I wish there were a rule 
that stated operators had to send their callsign for every QSO, or if 
they used QRZ, they would have to use it in conjunction with their 

As a low power operator who spends a lot of time in S & P mode, these 
operators who refuse to sign until you ask waste everyone's time, 
including their own.
