Conversations take place between people.
Telephone calls take place between people.
QSOs take place between people.

Here are two irrefutable facts about (almost) all remote

1. Remote operators are at all times communicating over

    whatsoever with other operators.

Those who claim that remote operation is exactly the same
as "hands-on" operation are in denial of those two facts.
