Yep, same here.  Might be someone needs the 'rare' Oregon QSL card for WAS 
or something.  If you just blow them off, they might remember you in the 
NAQP or SS or other domestic contest.  I just like to talk to people during 
a contest, not matter where they are.  I   don't think it's gonna cost me a 
win :-)  73
