People have a lot of trouble distinguishing a "6" from a  "B".  It happens 
with my call all the time: AB1J becomes A61J.
It's not just a matter of CW speed, as I seldom send over  25 wpm.  The fog 
of contesting also contributes.  
Folks are overly credulous about spots and don't consider the  propagation 
likelihood of a spot making sense.
Some of it is wishful thinking.  In general, which would  you rather work?
AB1J  or  A61J
6Y2T  or  BY2T
Ken, AB1J

Or, so  now that's a problem!

How QRS should it be, Scott? Any hints? I guess I  should've QRS'ed only 
"6", right? Seems no big problem with other  letters.

And how would that prevent people from sending (***) spots?  
Would appreciate your expert advice.
