On a related note, too many DX stations avoid IDing, counting on the 
packet pileups keeping them going.  Personally, I never log a QSO 
without hearing the call myself (and I always ask for the call, if it 
wasn't given the previous QSO.)  I recall one QSO that ignored my 
request for ID.  He will have a N-I-L from me, unless I worked him later 
(in which case I'm in his log twice, and he's in mine once).
