You will find the same situation on VHF/UHF FM and on VHF/UHF weak signal and the same complaints.
I heard the same complaints with regard to the analog sats back in the days of AO-13 -- same guys always on, hogging the pass band, running too much power, etc.
Solution - Try something new for a few weeks or months - HF, PSK31, FM simplex, 6 meter FM, 6 M ssb, 40 meter cw, etc.
When you get bored with that, then try the sats again.
