Most do it I think to make their callsign stand out from the other text.  That's why I do it anyway, but I do leave a space between the brackets and the callsign.  All of the software have tried will then recognize that.  HRD doesn't have a problem parsing non-alphabetic or numeric characters, so I don't have a problem with those who don't leave spaces.  Possibly theirs can parse it as well and it hasn't occurred to them that some out there cannot.

Then there are others who send their call as in brackets.  My software does not recognize that as a call sign so I have to cut and paste it or type it in to make a QSO with that station.  Why do some stations send their call in brackets?
