What do you consider an acknowledgement?  Many stations, including myself, 
running at a high rate, just give a quick TU, thanks or just say their 
callsign looking for the next contact. I never repeat your exchange. If I 
did not copy it I would ask for a repeat.

If I do not get a solid acknowledgement from another station in a contest,
I DELETE the ENTRY in my logging program.
Of course, I am NOT a big time contester, just a small fish,
but I figure if they are in too much of a rush to skip the confirmation,
they DESERVE the NIL...Not me.

I am sure most will say I am FOS, but too bad.
That is my way of doing things.
