Everywhere you look there are posts about not being a real amateur radio operator unless you operate CW, and not with a keyboard. I can see how newcomers to the mode can be intimidated by the expectations - "Do it right or don't do it at all." "Why don't you operate CW?" All of the points mentioned here are valid and represent a refined operating style, but with a thin line between helpful guidance and condemnation, it can take tremendous care to improve the quality of the mode among those who want to enjoy it and are learning. Is anyone actually not learning? And, for those who are offered guidance, it's better to hear it once, improve, and move on than to lose contacts and see your callsign show up in these forums.
