In my opinion, it is wrong not to QSL.  I have said so recently in a 
posting after a practice NA Sprint CW on a Thursday night.  I know that 
Bill Fisher, W4AN, felt the same way.  I have deleted QSOs from the log 
when I wasn't sure about it, but sometimes I have left them in.  I 
almost always run full QSK, so I should hear anyone having a problem 
with the QSO, but that is much more difficult with SO2R.

In my opinion, it is rude not to QSL the exchange.  (I send "TU.")  It 
is dangerous because some of WILL remove the QSO from the log to try to 
achieve a Golden Log or something close to it.
