Understand what you're saying and I agree. Have had 2 stations in FL call me at same time and one knocked the other out. Very familiar with one-way propagation and the "magic" circle where someone can be not heard at certain distances. On 10 meters years ago I was surprised pleasantly when traveled to MN (about 350 miles) and heard stations I could never hear before ! That was 10 meters, but it may be different on other bands. Propagation is sometimes weird.
Someone stated a while ago that everyone should stay in middle of (PSK) band and I think that may have caused problems with many stations being crowded into a small portion. When I call "CQ" I always seem to have better luck when I go up to 14.072 or higher... sometimes even down below 14.070. Made a lot of Q's that way.
Many thanks for Dec. 25 QSO !!!

Jerry, that's too easy to answer.
They simply don't spread out because they don't see each other.
How many times do you only copy 1/2 of a qso?
How many times do you call cq, only to have a station on that frequency, or very close start xmitting because they were already in a qso that you had no copy on?
It's a very narrow band width signal, and if they're not interfering with each other, does it matter?

Often copy signals all bunched together like a DX pileup. Never understand why ops don't spread out a bit....

Now that's interesting. I didn't know that, but it makes sense. Thanks Stephen. Learn something new every day.

- If there is another signal right next to the signal you are copying (like 50 Hz away), your software will measure its power and attribute that to IMD.
