[CQ-Contest] CQWW - what do I do about unlikely QSO

One time I was in the 10 Meter contest working phone only and was called by
a BY.  Since no BYs had ever been on phone I knew it was a slim and did not
log it.  After the contest I heard about the first SSB operation from BY...
You can imagine my angst.
