What exactly, Jim, is “the problem” that needs a solution?

About the only phone contest that I enter is SS, which has as its’ roots a test for traffic handlers.  “Please Copy” comes from there and I must admit to sometimes using the phrase.  I may make a point to do so more often.  What QRG do you commonly occupy in SS?

Most of these lids aren't new, and imitating what they hear on the air.
I DO correct them, tell them I'm not working them, and don't log them.

If we're not part of the solution, we're part of the problem.
