Here's my observation of relative mode confirmation rates in LoTW and  eQSL:
JT65 > PSK > RTTY > CW > SSB > FM
It sort of goes along with computer skills and maybe age.
I'm currently running 49.5% confirmed in LoTW.  If I took out all the  old 
QSOs from 1960-1999 I'd be well over 50%.  I think this is  remarkable and 
partly explains why LoTW seems to run so poorly now - it's a  victim of it's 
own success.  A lot of my confirmations come from digital  and RTTY QSOs.

Many of  these QSO's are already confirmed in LOTW (hint, RTTY contesting 
has extremely  high confirmation rates in LOTW).
