It is def not constructive....
The worst offenders on 10M on Sunday morning were US hams... in fact it got so bad that XR0 went QRT twice in quick succession.
Because people kept calling when XR0 was asking for number 1 - despite not being number 1 and then someone made a bitchy comment - that attracted bitchy comment -
[INSERT INFINITE LOOP STATEMENT HERE]
In the end it fell in chaos with comments like STFU .... No... You STFU!
Sadly the calls, accents and signals and comments were from US hams against other US hams.
Meanwhile the VK and ZL ops that could hear him lost the chance to work XR0 on 10M
And I can tell you - its damm hard from down here!
I checked some of the callsigns matching the accents in the pileup
Some of these guys are long time hams - honor roll members and big time DX'rs.
I really wish they could sense the very strong annoyance from ZL/VK and prob others for destroying the pileup due their actions.
So its not always EU hams..... JA can be as bad... just more polite about it!!!
But some of the US big time DX'rs are the worst offenders from what I see in pile ups!
Sorry chaps to be the bearer of bad news!
