I am lost here.
What will the guy learn if his call is removed from the log without any

All he will see is somebody is a no-good operator.
99.6% or so of his checked QSO lines are found in logs but there are some
that are NILs.

What did the guy learn?
What was the lesson teached?

All I see there is blunt rudeness and unsportsmanship by the individual
removing the QSO line without communications of the unsure QSO.
In case something is so wrong you decide the QSO did not happen - please -
call again.
