John, I agree.  It is my practice to work dupes and not question  them.  
And, if I call someone and he gives me a QSO B4, I usually simply  ask for 
another QSO.  Most times, I get the QSO, but sometimes,  the op just wants 
to argue about it, ARRRG.  After all, I would  not have called him if I had 
known I had worked him before!

You get credit for the previous contact and I don't. It would have  been
just as easy to give me a report the second time. QSO B4 is not one of  my

It  is after that bad experience that I have decided to systematically
refuse  the QSO's B4.

After all, if my callsign is busted in the other guy log,  I do not lose
the points but he lose the points and if he answers ''NO''  when I send QSO
B4 then I will work him without  discussion.

Interested by your opinion on that point.
