[CQ-Contest] WW SSB on my mind

Same type of thing on the Maritime Mobile Net at 14.300.  There would be 
EU DX stations calling CQ 2 kc above or below 14.300.  As soon as 
someone tried to answer them a Maritime Mobile Net freq Cop would get on 
the freq and tell the answering station they were interfering with the 
net.  I heard people try to ignore them and the MM Freq Cop would just 
keep QRM'ing them so they couldn't hear if the DX station came back to 
them.  And what was going on with the MM Net?  They were begging for 
check-ins and exchanging signal reports trying to keep the freq busy, no 
emergency traffic at all.
