While I can understand Albert's sentiment, dismissing everybody who  
doesn't understand the contest, many of whom are well-intentioned,  
thinking they're giving points to someone, as lids seems bitter and  

Better, in my view, is to, as soon as you realize your CQing error, is  
just work the first same-country guy and then edit your CQing macro to  
add DX to the CQ. Chances are good that the guy that just worked you  
will hear and realize his "mistake".

Attitudes like Albert's will only harm the hobby of radiosport in the  
long term. Very few casual ops on during contests know or even care  
what contest is on, let alone know who they should and should not  
work. What they will know, however, is that some rude, cranky lid blew  
them off.
