    Wouldn’t it be great if we all learned how to send Morse JUST WELL ENOUGH for Radiomen to copy, BUT NOT SO WELL that machines could copy!

    No. Why exactly do you think that would be great?

    And these days you'd have to be a real lid to send so poorly you couldn't be copied. ;)

    It would be great because it would put the crutches, skimmers and spotting networks, out of business and return DXing and contesting back to skilled Radiomen, not point and click video game players.

    Why do you care how others operate? It's really none of your business.

    This post reminds me of a movie with Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels.OP does not even know he is a Sexist and publicly admitted it.

    Yes, it IS his business.

    There comes a point where one is no longer actually operating, but instead, supervising machines that are operating.

    There was a story in QST called "The Man Who Broke The Bank" that comes to mind.

    What sets ham radio apart from any other radio hobby is copying CW. Not simply talking into a microphone (or phone) or sending text messages via a computer (Or a phone). Why that upsets some folks is interesting.
