Hi Mike, in the past I have operated as part of Multi-Multi contest 
efforts on HF as well as VHF/UHF, and lately my operating has been from 
my own modest home station.  On HF, I (we) almost never run out of other 
stations to be worked.  On VHF/UHF, I (we) always do.  I think that is a 
big difference that creates different views as to what is 'acceptable', 
especially when the real goal is to have fun and work as many other 
stations as possible.
