I agree entirely Chris, the very fact that someone sends you a card most 
likely indicates that they probably rather like them and would want one 

The most common ones that I get from HF contests are from rtty contests 
where often my card overlaps with theirs in the buro... I often get some 
marked 2nd card PSE QSL! - so I suspect that person is fairly keen.

Perhaps contests should be limited to ONLY those people who take them 
seriously and only propper contest modes .... casual operators, qsl 
collectors and dx'ers should keep away, preferably move away from our 
segement altogether then we can keep our high rates up... hello hello... 
is there anyone still there ... cq test cq test.....

I am grateful for ANY qso during a contest and if that costs me a bit of 
cardboard then so be it.
