The last time I operated assisted, the first time or two I made a typo I
stopped concentrating on operating the contest and made sure I promptly
fixed the error.

Then I took an offtime and thought about it.

And from there on out, as long as the typo didn't put the station in the
wrong country, I didn't bother fixing it.  (on packet.  It was fixed in
the log.)  As long as I'm not sending other operators on a wild goose
chase after a needed mult that isn't there...  it's my responsibility to
copy the other guy's call for *my* QSO.  For *your* QSO, it's *your*
