So... I take it you put yourself in the 2% then?
There's likely many things about the radio you don't know that your rhetorical ham does. However, I don't see what that has to do with the primary discussion here.
I'd have to have a better definition of what a REAL HAM is. And that's a whole new thread to beat to death.
No way man, I ain't poking that bear. It's not that big an issue. In fact, I'm pretty sure nothing on QRZ.com is worth getting upset and suicidal over!
Which is too bad. People get emotionally invested in what are just discussion of our opinions. The personal jabs and general discourse of some people's posts make me wonder if they might take what they read far too seriously. Some folks start steaming up so badly they don't think straight. It often shows in their replies. I don't remember feeling upset over what I read on QRZ.com. Hard to imagine I ever would.
Anyway, thanks for the opinions. That's why I asked. My panties were never bunched, and neither should yours be.
Actually, I found his post both informative and beneficial to the truth behind ham radio today...
A real HAM is half of a Hogs Ass.
I do what I can to help fellow hams.
There was a thread in the Rag Chew forum about a family who's house caught fire. the kid (10 years old I believe) was a freshly minted ham who was just starting to collect what he needed for his ham shack, and he lost it all. There was a huge outpouring of support, with offers of radios, tuners coax, and antennas on that thread. Everything you expect from helpful hams.
Where were you?
You forgot the 0.01% of us who are perfect.
