Same thing here, about the same time, maybe same incident???

A W6 said I was on their freq. I said it was clear and they said they were
up one kHz. I asked him if we were now suppose to ask everyone above
and below a clear freq if it's okay but didn't hear his answer as he went after
someone below me. He complained to this new intruder the freq was busy
and that battle lasted for awhile. I waited to see how far this guy would go
down the band trying to clear a hole, but someone started to CQ on his
(now vacant) frequency. I was laughing too hard to hear his reaction.

Not sure what happen after that as I gave the dial a big spin and went for
another handful of mm's while waiting for it to stop and I could CQ again.
