It is quite clear to the DXpedition operator when a station calling cannot hear his reply.

There were a couple of them that bugged us constantly on the recent VK9XI/VK9CI expedition.

Here's what the IK0 has in the log for 3C1L after being chastised about his dupes with 3C0L. This is from the Nov 9 update, so there may be more. Callsign abuse is possible. But as mentioned on their home page, this op had more dupes from previous DXpeditions with his very own uploads to ClubLog than shown on the DXpedition's uploads. This could be a severe case of oink fever. http://www.k4hb.com/dxpig.html.

people who use a radio this way abuse the time of the DXpedition itself as well as all those who are trying to work a pileup respectfully, so calling their disease 'oink fever' is probably too kind to them and too unkind to pigs.
if they arent called out, their mental software virus may very well spread, to the detriment of all of us.  The op in question made at least 11 contacts with 3C1L that wasted everyone else's time, no doubt denying several of us legitimate contacts.  good to see the DXpedition is maintaining the high road and even sprinkling their call out with some wry humor

if i had the requisite know-how, i might be tempted to create a program that queries recent DXpedition logs for dupes and then posts a resulting top 10 (or top 100) most UNWANTED list if certain levels of transgression were met... (weeding out those callsigns who only have 1 dupe here or there)  Wink

 One of a DXpedition's most precious commodities is time. If time is wasted through DQRM, unnecessary dupes, etc. we show disrespect to the many seeking legitimate Qs and disrespect to the ops at the hot/cold/arid/wet/hostile/lonely/uncomfortable DX QTH.

Worked them on 80, through the European pileup. 

I think they are leaving soon?

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

In all fairness, this is how 3C0L and 3C1L uploads to ClubLog compare to what the IK0 uploaded for the same operations. It should be noted that uploads to ClubLog can be selective or edited and that uploads for 3C1l aren't complete. But regardless, the op can't claim callsign abuse for what he himself uploaded. In other words, there's a whole lot of piggy activity going on here. (Oink Oink)

 I released a "Lid List" 4 year ago while DXing as HH5/KC0W. Unfortunately the only copy of it still on the Internet has the 7 callsigns omitted by the JA operator who's webpage it's on............Here: https://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/airtrek_kami/GALLERY/show_image.html?id=37734611&no=0  

 I tend to give fellow DXers the benefit of the doubt but when the SAME guy tries working me 4, 5, 6 or more times on the same band/mode it absolutely drives me nuts.

 This 7 person "Lid List" had:

 1 USA operator
 3 Japanese operators
 2 Israeli operators
 1 European (can't recall which country)
  

 Well, I get this scathing email from an American Jewish amateur saying I'm an anti-Semite & how he reported me to the Anti Defamation League. He DEMANDED I remove the list from my QRZ page immediately or face "potential legal consequences". Funny how I wasn't called a racist by any Japanese or European operators. I released the 7 callsigns because they were truly the worst of the worst when it came to operating & dup's.................Type "KC0W Lid List" into Google for more info.

Tom, I suspect you had no idea about the ethnicity or faith affiliation of the USA operator until he rubbed your nose in it?

 Yes, he made it very clear what faith he was.............Funny how the other nationalities/religious convictions on the "Lid List" didn't send me any hate mail or threaten "potential legal consequences"   Smiley

 My log book is full of 4Z & 4X callsigns & I have been to Israel. I'm the farthest thing from a radio anti-Semite.

I had a list up once for stations charging more than necessary for a return QSL. All these were home stations, except for one DXpedition, which was a group in Australia. Got DEMANDS to take down their callsigns, and got a threat from the group for legal action in the US. Got an email to remove their call from my web page by a certain date or else. Just ignored it, because I don't give in to demands or threats. They only make me more determined to keep on doing what I'm doing. Besides, I laugh when anyone threatens to sue me. Ever tried squeezing blood out of a turnip?

Later on, there was a BIG stink concerning the group in Australia. Some ops on one of their DXpeditions were complaining because they put their money up front and couldn't recover any of it when there was a surplus of donations coming in. Rather than return money to the ops or major contributors, they were choosing to keep the extra funds in their coffers. That didn't work out very well for the group.
