When someone blows me off, I simply add them to my LID/NOCARD file and I 
load it in my logger, and when the call comes up I refuse to give points to 
someone who treats others like that in the name of contesting and amateur 
radio...it is just plain RUDE to behave in such a manner as far as I am 
concerned as it is the little guys that make up the majority of the points 
given in a contest as we all know and without them many will have fallen off 
the mighty pedestals..... IMHO......

happy contesting to all...
