Three or four times I started to CQ after a couple quick "?" and was 
answered by  something like "pse qsy - JA**** on freq".  So, I 
dit-dit'ed and QSY'ed.  If I was guilty of anything like Lee 
describes, its because no one 'splained and asked me to leave.  The 
point is, I think most regular Topbanders would do the same.  I also 
don't see anything wrong with noting the situation and the call 
involved and informing the guy via private e-mail if he didn't cooperate.
