I'm really thinking that maybe a question they left off ham exams,  
world-wide, that shouldn't have been left off is something like:

Another ham tells you that your [deviation/frequency/audio/noise  
level/etc] is not correct.  Your response is:

A) Deny it
B) Ignore it
C) Cuss them out for minding your business
D) Investigate it to see if there is any merit in what they are saying

I've given up giving accurate signal reports or information about bad  
signals to the owner of the signals.  Too often saying to someone,  
for instance, "By the way, there looks like there is a really strong  
background tone when you transmit at about 500 hz" is taken to be a  
personal insult.  Others probably feel the same, which is probably  
why it's so hard to get an accurate signal report on the air.
