You have ignored the time wasted by those who are listening, and 
silently waiting for you to sign your call. We don't want to add to the 
mayhem when, on Sunday afternoon, there is a good chance you are a dupe. 
We also don't appreciate you wasting our time for alleged benefit of 
reducing the waiting time of those who are calling.

As to your own behavior, you are right - I never recall having to wait 
long for you to ID. However, I can name others who have gone 10-15-20 
QSO's without an ID in CQWW.
