Your question isn't so dumb, and its answer is a little complicated.

First off, you need to bear in mind that there's always going to be a lot
of buckshot (noise from splatter) between a.m. signals and even between ssb
signals. Cw operators like to be comfortable, and they also like to have
something left of their sense of hearing left when they're done operating;
so they'd much rather operate in a segment of any given band where a minimum
of noise can be expected. Until quite recently the bottom ends of the ham
bands have been their last, best hope.
