I can't believe what I am reading from Jim.  So Jim if I receive another QSL
card request from you (I am not on LoTW) with a SAE and return funds; would
you like me to throw it in the trash and keep the funds?  That is your
practice for others, so I expect that you will be fine if I do the same to
your inconsiderate paper request.


I wasn't born in Saskatchewan, but I got here as soon as I could.

If that ham has not given other hams the courtesy of putting his log on 
LOTW, I see no reason that I should give him the courtesy of sending a 
card in return. Instead, I consider the money a contribution to the 
considerable research that I done on ham radio issues and have published 
on my website. I choose to do that work and publish it rather than spend 
days sending cards to hams who are inconsiderate of other hams.
