I'm not the most patient person, so I have sent the occasional email
about QSL cards. Always courteous and in search of a solution to get
the card (especially when it's one of the last few for an award). I
certainly have never threatened to out a non-QSLer.
I'm sometimes slow getting my QSLs and other mail out, but they will
go out if you request it. If you send me a nice email, that will
expedite it. If you send me an email threatening to out me publicly,

a "few" of those that work someone in a certain location get their
