    I'm still wondering why there is a SSB thread in a CW forum.

    You're listening to the wrong frequencies, don't knowledge or listen to those types of groups, get on and talk "Good Ham stuff" on your group.

    I am sure that the new O O replacement group that the ARRL is putting in place will probably go after a bunch of these as their first priority. Remember who's heading that group up, like it or not, Riley Hollingsworth will be tough as heck on them and that's what's needed.
    He's going to be at the Albuquerque Duke City hamfest outlining what the new ARRL program is doing and I bet this is top priority.

    In the meantime don't succumb, to these guys, do good stuff on your frequencies with your friends.

    And if that doesn't work we all need to get a Wouff-Hong

    Or, as my friend who studies Chinese medicine would call it: Liver Yang Uprising, a.k.a. grumpy
    old men getting livid.

    Maybe we should encourage SSB ops to 'cuss like they did on 1960s TV programs:
    Dagnabit, Consarnit, Tarnation, Heck, H-E-Double-Toothpicks,
    Shucks, Dang, Darn, Durn, Gosh Darn it, Dad Gummit, Holy Cow, Jeepers Creepers,
    Gee Willikers, Sacre Bleu.
    There, and I didn't even say a single "bad" word.

    I'm not sure what all of this has to do with CW operating, other than it is a good reason to us use CW.

    That can't be good for book sales.

    I find it funny that anyone thinks CW ops are generally morally superior to SSB ops ( or any combo thereof ).
    CW is all about efficiency ..... it's just not efficient to waste time and energy pounding out expletives!

    No, it's a mode disappointment post. Wish it weren't that way out there. But people are people. All kinds out there where ever one goes I suppose.
