[CQ-Contest] What Do You Do about US Stations Calling US in ARRL DX?

ARRL is different from CQWW, where the calling USA station may very well  n
eed you for a multiplier.  In CQWW you should log everyone who  calls.

In ARRL it is quicker to work them than to say "sri no us in test  tu".  
The handful  who called me this weekend I did not log,  however.  

I assume the ARRL log checking will ignore any stateside  qsos that you 
might log, however.

This advice may vary if you live in  North Dakota or Wyoming.

This weekend I had several U.S. stations calling me during the ARRL  DX
Contest.  I do not like to ignore them, but don't want to take the  time to
work them.  I settled in saying "sri no us in test tu" and kept  calling CQ.
What is proper etiquette?
