I'll second that... Shelby has it nailed.. I have a rythym for S&P.. and if you break it.. I'll be patient... up to a point...cross that line.. and I'm outta there... the line moves too.. depending on when in the contest it is happening.I also have a rythym for running.. and if you mess that up.. I write your call down... and it isn't in the log! Fool me once... maybe.. fool me twice.. not very bloody likely. Fool me three times.. and nil is really friendly.. I don't need you... I'm pretty sure.. after many years of working Qs... folks like K4BAI, and K7QQ, K7SS, and of course the big GUNS..won't cause this consternation... and I'm all for practicing.. and learning new skills...do that in smaller contests.. my patience is a lot more tolerant there. Don't in the BIG ones...and BTW.. there is a HUGE difference between.. brain farts.... fingers screwing up.. and SO2R delays....
