Agreed Andre.
I should note that the anchorage concerned, though in Sydney Harbour is usually empty or down to a couple of boats 5 days out of seven and even in summer will only have half a dozen boats on a weekend.
What it comes down to then is that rules say first in best dressed and etiquette is close by that. Maybe consideration for others is a different matter.
The "throw out 100m of chain into 10m of water" type is just as much of a nuisance but again rules and etiquette are in their favour though I guess thats better than the 1:1 scopers.
