Snipped from a posting on another BB:

Quote
I got into a discussion a while back on SSB talking about antennas, amplifiers and building in general.
Sure enough, at "ID" time, everyone chimed in, and one individual gave his call, in a rather disgusted, put-out, irritated voice.
I spoke up (I'm not shy!) and said "What's the matter, this stuff boring you?"  HE said "Hell yeah!  I don't come turn my radio on to just sit and listen to all this electronic building crap!  I wanna talk about what's important to ME!"

Geez Don,
              Talk about someone who is into himself! I guess he finds what most of us love to talk about boring. That's why most receivers have a VFO to change frequency with.

Possibly he's rather talk on 2 meter FM-CB where he can discuss his Hemmoroid operation and digestive problems. Whatever floats your boat I guess!

Or typical SSB appliance operator mentality.  Remember, these are the folks who have repeatedly petitioned the FCC to have AM outlawed from amateur radio.

Probably fires up on the exact same frequency night after night, talks to the same 5-6 other hams, about the same uninteresting stuff, and pitches a royal fit if some unsuspecting operator outside his pet group happens to appear on "his" frequency, even if it was not actively in use at the time.
