The discussion on QRM might simply be placed in one box.  The current ARRL membership is approx. 161,000, current licenses out there around 710,000.  The ARRL publishes the 'Considerate Operator Frequency Guide' once a year in an issue of QST which lists freqs of interest by intended use.  This list is nothing more than a suggestion to 161,000 folks.  That leaves 549,000 possible folks that don't have a clue, in addition to their lack of operating courtesy.  549,000 that think 3885 or 7290 or whatever AM window or calling freqs. are just another number on the dial for their intended use, and they are correct.  Which is why we have no limits on AM operation in the phone bands, just as it should be.
