Yes  it  is. In case of LoTW you will never get a confirmation request
for  a  QSO  never  been  made.  To  be  correct,  you  will  see  QSO
confirmation  if  and  only  if  both  QSO  records  meet  some  match

It's  up  to  you and them. But I can not understand what makes you to
persuade  the others against LoTW? Something makes me think you do not
like the idea of non-traditional confirmations itself, and photocopies
is not the real reason you do not participate in the project.

Wrong case. Don Quixote was fighting FOR something positive, but you?

Finally, all this story is not about you but about those who need your
logs on the LoTW, for DXCC awards purposes. How about that? May I have
full  list  of contesters you mentioned above to avoid calling them in
the contests?
