I beg to differ here. Applying the "rules of the road," the existing QSO had 
"right of way." The net was the one that should have: 1)Ask if the operators 
would MIND QSYing or 2)Move the net in and of itself. However, the in 
scenario #1 they are not compelled to move since it is first come first

I did not say anything about there being any assigned frequency. If you
were on the air first, the net control should have asked you to move up
a bit, as the net was about to start. At the same time, the correct
thing for you would have been either to be on 3880, 3885, or 3890. not
3887. If you operated on 3887 you are now hogging 10kc of bandwidth.
With you on on 3887 no one can use either 3885 or 3890. Keeping on even
frequencys on 3880, 3885, 3890 allows all of use space to operate.
