Yes, Mike - It is my opinion that you are 100% correct.
It is also possible that this person has never tried to work 
CW through heavy SSB QRM too!

Tryit sometime with a 500 Hz filter where the station you are 
working is RST 559 / QSB and then a station comes on top 
of you on SSB that is RS 59+25 dB. No filter is going to let you 
hear that CW signal.
