Exactly correct. You never really know what the other station is going to
do, and since the exchange is so quick, I just run with it. Besides, it's
the courteous approach.
I also like to throw in that it is a dup. On several occasions that has
revealed an error in logging.
I usually average two or three dupes on this type of contest.

So if you make a contact with a station that shows up as a dupe there is the possibility that the station decided to start a different block. With that being the case it is easier and quicker to just go ahead and log the contact just in case they changed their block. It would take longer trying to explain they were a dupe.
