    You misunderstand me. I'm not saying we should all do the same things or agree on it. I'm saying we should not get our collective panties in a twist when someone does something different than we do.

    For example, I don't care if another ham (HAM/HaM/hAM/H@M) is strictly a DMR/DStar via Hotspot user. It doesn't affect me at all. More power to them. Or, I don't care if a ham selling gear only accepts wampum in exchange for their battered rig (no returns due to parts swappers!). I'm not obliged to buy, so I don't care. They can fill their boots.

    But I also expect the same level of benign neglect when I choose to do the things I do in this very broad hobby. You may not appreciate or approve of it, but if it doesn't prevent you from doing the things you want to do or isn't illegal (different than honest mistakes in operating), there's no reason to concern yourself with my activities (Not "you" specifically, speaking in the general sense).

    You misunderstood me.

    Folks getting their panties in a twist is what keeps things interesting. At least here…

    The key is not getting butthurt about it. Its a give and take. Some just can’t take it and thats fine…for those there are other places where harmony reins and everyones panties always stay nice and neat.

    It's a shame we can't 'like' a single posting more than once. :D

    Let add a HOA thread along with a whackertastic EMCOMM thread topped off with a “You will never Guess what the ARRL is upto!” Thread!

    Alas, no...for some here...any ham who's has anything to do with emergency communications and has anything to do with the local EMA is a WACKER. ;)
