Should we encourage the DX to self spot so they would get the pile up?
Or do we say self spotting expedition QSOs are no good for DXCC?

I believe the OF community will vote for the latter.
Younger hams just do not care this minor feature in our hobby.. Or is it
a  minor bug?
They WFWL.

Please note the cream of the younger hams do not fall for those fake 5nn
without call hustlers who just wanna have some fun.
