Too Close Encounter At US Airports

Once again, an ac (A320 N855NW taxiing) has clipped the horizontal stabilizer of another one (Horizon's DH-8 awaiting for gate), this time at Portland on the 29th Sep. 2005.
Out of curiosity, what may be the cause(s) of these repeated close encounters? Too tight space at gates, airport procedures, congested taxiways,...
It does not seem (but I may be wrong) that so many incidents of the kind occur in Europe.
On the other hand, the FAA reports openly any incident right away. We cannot say the same about the EASA (only 3 years old).

Can't say I know about this one. QX rotation is showing just A/C N363QX, which was hit by the NWA-A332 , out of service only!

Have any info on which Dash it was?

Another close encounter, this time at Atlanta yesterday between parked Northwest A319-114 N314NB and towed America West A319-132 N803AW.
Only winglets rubbing, I understand.
My initial question still stands.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
