I do not believe a lack of concern for following rules is mode 
dependent.  Perhaps it's easier to tune out unethical behavior & rude on CW 
but it exists too and is just as offensive.

I believe that a break in the rules is due more to the win-at-all cost 
often prevalent in the contest community regardless of mode.  Interestingly 
enough, a lot of the operators in the top ten, if not frequent first place 
winners, engage in neither rule-breaking not rude on-the-air 
behavior.  They often seem to be having the most fun too.  Curious isn't it?

Ever listen to a really good SSB contestor? (I have, esp. in NC when I had 
to contest with indoor antennas---Between working everyone possible I could 
hear S & Ping and waiting for new people to show up on the bands.)  True art.

shut my mouth and why do I care anyway?
