Just venting.. Can people stop going into great detail about there profession, What they did today. IE getting your oil changed, filling your bird feeders or going to the pharmacy when a DX station is clearly trying to work multiple DX stations and clearly hints to such. WTF

add
- station that wins the pileup and then asks the DX station what their callsign is.
- big gun station that has talked to the DX station many times before, but calls up anyway to chat and tell the DX that they have a heck of a pile up going.
