Agree.  Removing uniques is a stupid idea.  When working at N3HBX, I 
worked a lot of uniques - including a couple that I have always 
remembered including....

1) working one of the VK foundation class hams on 40 SSB.  He was 
thrilled that I was his first North American QSO (me, being on the east 
coast).  He told me he was going to have a beer after we made contact.

2) working a G station around 1100z on 40 CW and having him mention it 
to his friends that he worked a stateside station well, well into 
daylight his time.  Got a direct QSL card two weeks later.

Both were uniques in my UBN that I received later.

For a couple of  hours I worked very weak G stations that responded to my CQs.  On several occasions I received the comment "Thanks for my first Stateside QSO"-probably a unique QSO.  This "unique" should not be removed from my log.
