Topband: Kostas' point

Another fellow pressed me on this.   What I should have said - that 
perhaps is more clear - goes like this.

1. Worry about your own operation --> because you can control it.

2. No point to worry about the other guy --> because you almost 
certainly have no control over it.

3. Point #2 does not in any way detract from what your personal views 
are.  Point #2 is NOT saying anything about the "rightness" of any ham 
operation practice.

If the guy asked me "can i use my web sdr to hear you better?" - Sure, 
I'm going to say "let's do it the old school way."  But they don't 
ask...  And I would be willing to bet they don't advertise either.  I'm 
just going to log the QSO and move on to the next contact.  Point #2 is 
is simply a reflection of my personal belief that time wasted worrying 
about things for which I have no ability to significantly influence is 
wasted time - and the clock is ticking for all of us.
