[CQ-Contest] Can a call be too short?

I hate it when people put extra spaces between characters like that.  
When the S/N is low with QSB I often rely on pace and rhythm to recreate 
the other guys callsign in my head.  When you send W9E T I can't tell 
whether you sent W9ET or W9IT.  I think that's bad practice.

Just my opinion ...
