I didn't think I was complaining about anything,  Merely stating what I thought of operating FT-8.  I have no problem with anyone using that mode, or any other.
At least they're using their radios.

In my experience this works and is a good plan.  Sadly many hams, when the pickings are slim, get online and complain about how FT8 is ruining the entire universe.  Why they consider this more fun than FT8 I don’t know, as the process of complaining about FT8 appears to be about the same as letting your computer solve your crossword for you.
