/"//Working through a string of dupes for zero pointers is no help to 
one's score."/

I agree, from the running station viewpoint, it is not a help to their 

But I take exception from a non-runner perspective... It's a big help to 
the S&Pers and it helps separate the wheat from the chaff.. The "chaff" 
being those operators who rely on the !00% (perceived) accuracy of the 
spotting network and blindly work a "new" station without listening. 
They are rightly delayed and further penalized for a busted call in 
their log. That helps my score by diminishing their score!
