   I think it's pretty childish to purposely ignore someone in a contest
 just because they didn't return your QSL. Like K9YO pointed out , many
 of us have a life outside radio and contesting and find it hard to spend
 alot of time answering QSL cards. Personally , I am not really interested 
 in QSL cards because I have worked DXCC/WAS etc... many times over and over.
 But if you send me a card with a SASE , I will be glad to answer it. Otherwise,
 you are out of luck.

   Here is maybe one solution... make up a card of your own for the station you
 worked to just sign and slip in a SASE. This seems to work pretty good for the
 county hunter guys... I for one am looking forward for the LOTW to be up and 
 running. With the other technology we have in ham radio today this is long
