You can log whatever you want.

in the old days of paper logs,  there were two columns for signal reports. Outgoing or Sent (how you heard them) and incoming or Received (how they heard you) .

QSL cards usually have one column; you put the report of how you heard them.

Rubbish, a totalitarian statement that is plain wrong  Smiley
Signal reports tell you a lot about propagation provided you know the power and antenna, hence that info is exchanged on 2nd over of default rubber stamp QSOs.
Knowing propagation (via online means, WSPR beacon, experience etc) will then also allow you to see how your new antenna A or B is working out, only if you get honest signal reports. IN fact, if you read the ITU basic reason for granting amateur radio service spectrum on the bands, and probably the terms of your own license, amateur radio is not at all about giving 5NN fake reports but about experimentation, studies and communications training.
I do not object to button pushing 5NN as that's what floats the boats of many but keep it within that group, don't impose it on the rest of us by saying anything other than 5NN TU is a TOTAL waste of time, it may be for you, but as a general statement that is just not true.
