I will grant you that some of the time folks are being way too stubborn and short-sighted. One of the big positives for me about this game is that you're not "forced" (either by conventional wisdom or by game mechanics) into a certain gameplay style or a certain ship fit the way you are in EVE Online.

But the bottom line is that putting in content that only a few people play specifically to lord their talents over "lesser" players and feed their e-self esteem is a waste of Cryptic's limited time and resources. It's fine to put a reward on a high shelf and make people jump to get it. It's not ok to put it in the sky and ask us to fly (or rely on bugs and exploits). That is what this thread and the others are about.
The problem is that people are asking that it be served on a silverplate and its currently on a shelf so you have to stand on your toes to get it.
