As part of the "CW rabble" I guess I should have been more explicit .....
Let me rephrase it:
"And ..... RTTY ops generally (notice I said generally, not always, or
usually, or most or nearly all, or the vast majority, or even the majority,
or every one, or the biggest share or ....) don't listen aurally to a
frequency -"

Ok .... how about a whole lot don't listen aurally to a frequency -

Not being a RTTY operator, I'd be curious as to how many really do have
their headphones on ..... or their speakers turned on.
