My PSK31 Pet Peeve

One of the things that annoys me when making a contact on PSK31 is when someone ends a QSO by telling me not to eQSL. Now if people aren't interested in eQSLing that's their prerogative, but if I want to log a contact to the eQSL site so as to have a complete record of my activity then that's mine. As with any type of QSL it's my choice whether to send one or not and whether I send it via the bureau or electronically it's their choice if they want to receive it.

I copied the following off-air a few minutes ago:

>> NOT INTRESTED IN - E QSL OR LOTW !!!! <<<
>>> PSE DO NOT SEND - E QSL OR LOTW !!!! <<<
>>> ONLY QSL TO ****** IN PAPER VIA BUREAU OR DIRECT INFO VIA: >>> WWW.QRZ.COM <<

What a lot of fuss! If anyone doesn't want an eQSL all they have to do is stay away from eQSL.cc. How hard is that?
