Yes Charlie,
Yep.  Shields up! 

I was one of those geeky guys who rode a bicycle and had to put up with
all the garbage from the jocks in cars with all the remarks.

In time, I learned to overcome the problems caused by this bunch. 
(Gaining a 5th degree black belt in Judo and being able to bench press
325 pounds at age 17 kinda helped the situation too!)

I changed tactics by going on the defensive.  It worked.

...In the case of folks wanting to elinate our niche of the amateur
radio hobby, a strong defense here might help too.  

Lobbying the local League staff and SC's, and educating other hams as
to the existance of AM'ers might be helpful.
