QSK used to be used by those clever beggars, that were qualified radio hams, to break into a conversation on AM radio, when it was illegal, to complain how, it was causing interference on their broadcast channels.
You usually got a polite request to shift 3 0r 4 channels away from the one that you were using.

A friend of mine has a set of photos, all of these Hams, sat leaning forwards, towards their radios, as if by doing so, they would better hear something through their headsets.
HRH the Prince Philip, HRH Duke of Gloucester, HRH Prince Michael of Kent..
Before seeing this group of users, I often wondered why they never swore.

So, if you get a QSK, instead of 'on the side', be polite, as you just never know, whom you are talking to..
Of course, this doesn't mean that you have to shower, shave and dress for using a radio but it may help you in treating others to some respect...even if, undeserved toilet mouth users.
