there's one good possibility... it shows there are probably more casual
ops who don't keep computerized logs and make more qso's than they can
easily check in their paper log by eye for dupes.

And one bad one... there is more qrm and more of a chance of overlapping
cq's accidentally working the same station without knowing it.
