You or your friends must be buying junk connectors!  The discussion is 
about QUALITY connectors, not JUNK. REAL PL259s and SO239s from good 
manufacturers do not have the problems you describe.  The rule in the US 
is Amphenol, Amphenol, Amphenol.  You may have other good choices in EU.

I can show you N-connectors that are junk. Further, N-connectors on some 
cables are well known to suffer from "creep," whereby the center pin 
recedes back into the cable, no longer making contact with the mating 
connector. This cannot happen with the UHF family of connectors.
