I wouldn't assume it is deliberate or negligent when a fellow starts calling CQ - he might not 
be hearing anything at the time, even tough other stations on the net are in range of his 

The simple answer is always a quick "Is the frequency in use, please?" before beginning a 
CQ. You can't walk oin egg shells and that is one way to avoid most of the problems.
