Default What is hamsexy????

Can anyone offer a logical explanation as to what this group is. I have read multiple comments in different areas that something was "hamsexy". Then, I checked out there site and it seems that they like to not have anything good to say about anything.

At first they seemed to get down on the people who were on the grey line and referring to them as "whackers" but then that term is being used against anyone that goes to the extreme.

So, I have come to the conclusion that the term "hamsexy" is a very degrotory term.

Anyone care to offer a better explanation as to what this group is.

Hamsexy is a site devoted to the dark, evil and tainted side of Ham radio.

Actually, it's just a site for hams who don't take themselves very seriously. We make fun of our hobby, other hams, and ourselves.

People who are offended by Hamsexy don't get the joke, and are the kind of people we like to poke fun at.

The term "hamsexy" has, somehow, entered somewhat common vernacular. It wasn't the intention when the site was started, but it seems to have evolved into a term.

If you take yourself as a 'professional radio amateur', then you are Hamsexy.

If you like to walk around in public with a radio conspicuously clipped to your belt, you are Hamsexy.

If you are so obese that you rarely are able to get up off of the couch to partake in your amateur radio club's weekly prostate net, then you are certainly Hamsexy.

If you have any sort of emergency lighting on your car, and think your status as a 'professional radio amateur' justifies it, you are Hamsexy.

But, in all seriousness, it's just a stupid website with a bunch of dopey photos on it. Nothing more.

And almost imposible to register I have been trying to register since feb 23rd.

This is the responce I have received "It's not the e-mail account that is blocked, it is the IP range from Rogers.com that is blocked."

Using a legitimate ISP but still no luck.

Hamsexy is nothing more than QRZ.com that actually has a sense of humor (albiet twisted), Both sites have nothing good to say about anyone outside of their circle of insiders. QRZed curmudgeons just mean the nasty things that are said.

Consider yourself lucky you can't register. That's a horrible site run by a bunch of morons. I'm registered there, but soon realized what a POS the admin and mods are there. Certain people can get away with saying anything, others get chastized (or even banned) for saying the same exact thing. Very clickish site. Waste of time for me.

I'd give you my HS account if I had picked a "generic" username.... I never go there anymore.

Yeah, at least Hamsexy is a little humorous(although twisted at times). Those guys over at QRZ chased me away with their grumpy, curmudgeon behaviour. Then they have the audacity to ask you to contribute to be a member. No thanks, guess I just one of those slimy little "no code" hams that they don't want around anyway. I prefer either this site or E-Ham online as they are a little more polite. The off color humor at Hamsexy is a bit much at times, but I do like the way they give the whackers a hard time though....I do think they are pretty much murder on anyone who they think is outside the "rules". Tend to tread lightly around there, mostly lurk and stay on the periphery.

I spend more time on the air and less time on wackjob, curmudgeonm websites. Darn near all of the people I've worked are cool people that have helped me learn more about the hobby and I'd like to keep as friends from all over the world. Let your fingers rotate the big dial on your radio around the usual frequencies where the nucking futz operations occur ( 14.275, and some 75 meter sites where the usual gangs hang out). Take a stab at the slow speed cw ops on 40 meters. I started there and both learned a lot and increased my speed to dangerous levels of near comprehension of what I hear. Lots of learners out there and some great experienced ops who help us grow.

I find Hamsexy funny and it pokes fun at the Hams who take themselves too serious and the lighter side of some of the more odd people in the hobby.

If you get offended by the site.. Dont go there ..

Bryan,

If you still watching this thread, I think you may want to reconsider blocking the entire Rogers IP range.

Rogers is a very large ISP in Canada, with millions of subscribers. They are the dominant cable broadband provider in Eastern Canada.

I suspect if you were having a lot of problems with Rogers subs, it was due to the quantity of them.

Well this is the respose I received from Dan


"Shawn,

We briefly unblocked the entire range and within a day we started to receive spam sign-up from several addresses in the range. Until your provider (Rogers) terminates the spam producer(s), there is nothing we can do but block the entire range as it would take days if not weeks to selectively block/unblock individual addresses in the range.

Admin"

They as in Rogers for allowing spammers to steal bandwidth? I agree. No ISP should be a safe haven for spammers, but I am sure that isn't what you meant, so I have this to say...

If you think you can run a better website, buy yourself a witty domain name, pay someone to host it and put up with the hundreds of complaints fat unkept stinky hams send in and find people to actually join a website then perhaps you could start your own site. I doubt you will be able to do two of them.

KA8YPY, N3JFW and VE6HBD are all good guys and all of them are far from retarded. They may be crazy, but far from a retard. Those people banned from Hamsexy are banned for a reason. 60% of the users on here would be banned just because they are idiots. Maybe you don't realize this, but about 60% of the content on the front page of hamsexy appeared on here first. Look at the installs forum on here, it is an absolute goldmind for retard installs.

Ok what is the reason I'm banned ,I'll answer that NO reason.....just a range of IPs running through my ISP are blocked wich is a bull crap way of doing things.

Thats like locking out 100 people to make sure a certain one doesn't get in.
