There certainly seems to be more immature in amateur radio - I liken it to those with little taste that take a perfectly good car and ruin it with lashings of tacky accessories.
The equivalent in amateur radio is - excessive numbers of LCD monitors, nasty little auto ATUs, studio mics, boom mounts and radios that look like a kiddies games console.
They imagine form within their delusional world that anyone that doesn't follow this trend in a sheep like fashion is somehow envious of them.
However, it can be said with certainty those that do follow this fashion are highly likely to be of a similar disposition to people that call themselves Dave.
Ah yes, forgot about the equalizers (parametric of course), Dang!
