IMHO, unfortunately, sometimes signing /QRP works.

(TX)      > CQ TEST W9YT
(RX S9+20)< VE3CX
(RX S9+20)< K7ZD
(RX S9+20)< KU7Y
(RX S7)   < W9WI/QRP

If the first three HP stations all clobber each other, what letters sneak out from under the mess & get copied?  Yep, it's "QRP".  My choice is to 
ignore the /QRP, send "?", and hope I don't get another pile of identical S9+20 signals -- or come back to the QRP station.

Of course, if

(RX S9)   < WB9NME/4

is part of the pileup, the /QRP isn't going to help at all!
