Typical SSB appliance operator mentality.  Remember, these are the folks who 
have repeatedly petitioned the FCC to have AM outlawed from amateur radio.

Probably fires up on the exact same frequency night after night, talks to 
the same 5-6 other hams, about the same uninteresting stuff, and pitches a 
royal fit if some unsuspecting operator outside his pet group happens to 
appear on "his" frequency, even if it was not actively in use at the time.
