Without the "instant gratification" nonsense and the snide comments  about 
S/P now being point and click....
It just makes common sense to ID often.  In these days of  point and click, 
how many times are big gun stations suddenly besieged by a  string of 
dupes...as a result of a bad spot.  Working  through a string of dupes for zero 
pointers is no help to one's  score.
You give the call often and it happens less.  When I was KH7XS  out in 
Hawaii I could always tell when I had been misspotted...the dupes would  start 
piling up and then I would slowly and clearly give the call after each  QSO.  
Usually if I was running a 250+ hour I would just give it every  two or 
three times.
Personally, you don't give your call and you're S-9, and after the  third 
time I'll call blindly.  It's a dupe?  Tough, give your call  more often.
