I think ham radio started going down the drain when they did away with CW. Since that time there has been an influx of CB operators and EX CB operators that have brought their BAD HABBITS and BAD operating and BAD language from CB to ham radio. Most of which are in their mid 40to mid 50 age. We don't need or want these trouble making people in ham radio . I think I can speak for most of the older ham radio community since I have been a licensed ham for 50 years now and my wife has been also almost that long. It's time the FCC did their job and cleaned up the ham bands and get rid of the trouble makers for good!!
