I don't know that it is wrong. WS and CS may have been intended to be used that way, not sure. I agree that it isn't the way I'd use them if I was to use them more than the few very rare times that I have.

I have really enjoyed the hospitality I have encountered on the road, but have generally either found it by chance here and there or once and a while met someone I either actually knew in person or from online.
