I had only a couple of people toss out their last-two during the contest.

In those few cases and where there was only the one station calling, I said

After about four or five go-rounds with them (don't they ever get a
clue????), I would finally say "Use the callsign issued you by your
regulating authority"....


then the full callsign.

In one case, the yl was clearly miffed, but she gave me her exchange
