Jim, Most of the lists I'm on reflect that wide variety of human attributes,
including such as great helpers and constant whiners. It's what you get
when dealing with a clump of humans. Yes, there is squabbling at times
on EME mailing lists. The biggest contention there, as far as I can tell is
the idea of whether digital modes like WSJT is a good idea, if its compatible
in contests with other modes, etc.
Just like all the other lists I'm on, there are folks who disagree. You
don't want lists that are all sweetness, do you?
