From YOUR point-of-view. Some of us care very little about talking to a stranger across the world about their aliments or accomplishments. I could just as easily randomly dial a phone number and get about the same benefit. And about as technically challenging as "Phone" or CW. Oh, and saying "... without even interacting with your radio..." shows an abundance of ignorance. You think it just sets up on it's own? Funny how much angst FT8 has caused the haters. Must be because they have nothing else to work in this cycle. Don't fret, your chance to check into the 10M geriatric no-traffic net is coming. Maybe.
