A man’s word?

EVERYONE has the option of changing his or her minds. So why is it anyone’s business who talks to whom, where?

The current degree of animosity about the latest, most recent re-grouping (that we all knew was going to happen; come on, we knew, didn’t we?), on 3.720 is at record high, and I just do not get it. Haven’t we been there and done that? (A jillion times?) Did we not know that there are those who would flock to artie w6obb, at his slightest indication?

The ONLY high crime and misdemeanor I see here is that this bunch of middle-aged (and older!) MALES (fools?), insist on ‘marking’ their territory – and at their age and experience, they should know better. They just end up pi**ing on themselves. Again! And as with stale urine from any animal, anywhere, it soon stinks!

Changing your mind is no big deal, not keeping your word, once given, is a completely different matter! And that is where the problem arises, many think that these Hams are not simply changing their minds, but have given their word, and are now not honoring, not standing behind, what was said.

So which is it; did they change their minds, or not honor their stated stance? Are they just silly old lonely, male fools, randomly marking their territory without thinking? Or are they men of no honor, who’s word you can not count on? On which side do you weigh in?

Can two men share an apartment without driving each other crazy?

That was the stated theme of the "Odd Couple" television series, with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall.

Early intervention is critical if ham radio, as we know it, is to survive.

Some will stand their ground and keep their word. Some have not actually taken a side and probably don't give a shit. Quite a few (and you know who they are) will stick their noses as far up Art's ass as he'll let them.

I can't wait until somebody snaps and goes postal. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon....

As a member of the medical profession it is my professional opinon that there are several individuals who have displayed personality disorders serious enough to be considered dangerous. Going foward I would recommend that all ties including casual conversation cease immeadiately. History has taught us of the violence that can erupt from mental illness unchecked. In other words, sell your equipment and get out of the hobby.

Maybe that should be the next poll Evvy. Who is most likely to go postal?

From what I can tell, some were not to stable before they became obsessed with their Ham Careers. The really scarry ones are the ones that quietly say nothing, listening, living their lives from hearing others lives, becoming just like the ones they hear. Kinda' creepy. The Slient but Deadly Ones. Ever figure who they are?
