Comity? From Merriam-Webster:
"Our country soweth also in the field of our breasts many precious seeds, as
. honest behavior, affability, comity, wrote English clergyman Thomas Becon
in 1543. Becon's use is the earliest documented appearance of comity - a
word derived from Latin comitas, meaning "courteousness" (and probably
related to the Sanskrit word for "he smiles"). Comity is largely used in
political and judicial contexts. Since 1862 comity of nations has referred
to countries bound by a courteous relationship based on mutual recognition
of executive, legislative, and judicial acts. And, in legal contexts, comity
refers to the recognition by courts of one jurisdiction of the laws and
judicial decisions of another.
Nah...too much of that lets the blowhards off the hook..

Can we make a modest effort at comity? Be nice, folks.

just quoted it yourself. The minute you typed that phrase and began giving
out handouts or telling people to print it out you became guilty of
spreading ignorance as far as satellite operation is concerned. You are
leading newbie sat operators down a path they should not be on. If one does
not have the means to hear their own signal coming back from the bird so as
to insure they are "making it there" then they should not be on the
satellites. End of story.
