[CQ-Contest] serious question

I agree...Delete the QSO from your log...It wasn't a completed 2 way 
contact...I ended up doing that several times in NAQP CW, one was with a 
needed mult...I asked several times for a fill but no reply, he was 
gone...Not a good QSO and gets turfed from my log...

When S&P'ing, I always wait until I hear a "TU, QRZ", (or some other QSO 
"terminator" that tells me he's got it and moving on) from the other guy 
before spinning the dial again...I hope others do the same with me when 
answering my CQ's...Most people use a "TU" and that does the job 
nicely...I sometimes wonder, when I finish my report to the other guy 
and  my rig unkeys and all I hear is his callsign (no TU), whether or 
not he got my report OK...It's easy to incorrectly assume lots of things 
in the middle of a pileup...

That's my 2 cents worth...
