Wow, I am taken aback by the magnitude of anger and animosity on the lists.
When did a hobby supposed to foster friendly, "amateur" communication become
such a serious topic in people lives?  I personally disagree with this
viewpoint, but it's not important to me that I am willing to insult someone
over it... I can state my objection and why without an insult

Now health care reform, finance reform, the economy, now these are topics
that make me angry... but this IS ham radio, so I can't vent about these

Any particular reason?  I tried the SSB sats, but they just plain weren't
fun to operate.  I suppose if you want to humph around expensive, fragile
transceivers that require four hands to operate and still sound like an
angry duck in a tin outhouse, SSB has something going for it.

Leave SSB to the gallbladder brigade on 80m.
