[CQ-Contest] Logging question

This is an interesting question.  To me - there is a difference between
contest log - it is what it is.  Contest is over.  And the log for DXCC and
WAS or County purposes.  For those purposes, I will look at whether I made
an easy to see mistake.  If I did, I will give the requestor the benefit of
the doubt.  For my more desirable operations like Spratly, Macau, and Bhutan
- this is important.


However, my method of doing that is not possible using LOTW (I refuse to do
eQSL and QRZ.com QSL).  My method is to put those cards aside to see if the
real guy shows up - if it's a valid call.  If its not a valid call, and its
off by one letter, especially an obvious (missing dit or something), then I
just confirm if the info is all correct.


Technology imposes speed which imposes accuracy or all hell breaks lose.
Sometimes you need to be careful what you wish for.
