Hi Scott,
I concur with your findings.  Digital folks really like eQSL, as do  I.  A 
lot of folks seem to vehemently dislike it, but I like to see QSLs  and save 
my favorites into a folder and run it as a slide show when I'm not  using 
the computer otherwise.  There are a lot of nice eQSLs, as well as  too many 
default ones.
That being said, I have complaints about eQSL, too.  You just can't  
satisify some people.  ;-))  All this belies the fact that I'm a  pretty happy ham 
radio camper.  I'm still coasting down from an  endorphin high from last 
weekend's WPX-RTTY.
Online QSLing is a great step forward.  You can see my general QSL  
philosophy, as well as other meanderings, on my qrz.com page.
Ken, AB1J

I am  about 47% confirmed on LoTW and much lower on eQSL (although not 
calculated,  country list is shorter).  DX (outside NA) confirms more often on 
LoTW,  and, over all, digital QSOs are confirmed much more often on eQSL.  NA 
 contacts confirm more often on LoTW or both.  Digital contacts are  
confirmed overwhelmingly on eQSL.
