Have to agree with Vester, if you leave an STF, you create a problem for the understaffed group you're leaving behind. If we exempt Golds from the leaver penalty, we lower the threshold for them doing just that. A Gold who sees the optional for an STF lost early in the match, might decide to turn right around and go get his immediate do-over, leaving the rest of the team in a position where they're less likely to actually complete the STF at all. The leaver penalty makes it so that he at least has to consider settling for the STF without optional over nothing at all.
And that is the only reason that needs to matter. STO class warfare: Totally irrelevant.
