the issue is the fact that the bulk of the 80m band above 3600 has huge empty 
spaces between signals.  transmission content does not reduce the value of the 
transmission to the originating or intended receiving station - you are a 3rd 
party to the transmission and therefore it naturally would seem devoid of 

non-contesters view our exchanges as equally devoid of content and therefore 
given your logic, contesting is a waste of spectrum that could be better filled 
with awesome hi-fi audio transmissions coast to coast.
