Irrespective of how correct Hans and Steve are...

You can't control how others act but you can control how you react.

If you choose to sit there and wait and get steamed at the guy for not
IDing, that's your decision and it's one that's going to cost you Qs and
mults and points. No matter how dumb you think the other guy might be,
that's not a smart decision on your part.

This is what memories and bandmaps and tuning knobs are for. If you don't
know who he is, how do you know it's worth your while to wait for him?

At all levels, this is supposed to be fun. If you're sitting their nurturing
your next ulcer, how much fun are you having?
