May be not true in all cases. During this years`s WPX CW I operated qrp 
and had quite a few stations terminating the efforts to establish an 
exchange by simply starting another CQ (after my last transmission). I 
then listened to their next QSO: about half of them sent the number they 
had sent to me- so for them no response meant no qso. Still unsure how 
do deal with this practice in contests without serial numbers especially 
regarding those stations logging me without any comment: Doing it the 
hard way and not logging them without ack would be a NIL for them (but 
it would be hard for me, too,  i.e. with a double mult and a 
50:50-chance to be in the log...).
