Winning a contest typically involves working more causal operators than
the competition. Deleting valid QSOs would certainly discourage serious

I lost quite a few QSOs. For a number of years, the Russia DX was the same
weekend as the Virginia QSO party. In the FCC database, my callsign was
listed as being a Virginia address. For many logging programs, I would pop
up as being a Virginia QSO party multiplier and casual ops who were
focusing their efforts on the Virginia QSO party would work me for a QSO.
There, I lost points, which is absolutely stupid IMHO.

Casual ops are the bread and butter of DX contest stations and
discouraging them doesn't send a very good message.
