I'm guessing they were just playing up the trading/social aspect of the game... either that or the people I play with are just really stingy.
When we play, most people call for trading on their turn. In a five or six player game any one can call for trading on every turn, so there is a subdued WallStreet of six players happening on every turn before it closes out.
Being Stingy only gets you nuked by a robber or losing badly quickly to those that dominate the ports.
