People keep using the word "exploit" like it's a cardinal sin that should end all discussion.

The reality of the situation is that it was the will of the market, the customer base, reflected in playing habits. It is a sign that the game has been made into too much of a resource grind. The true problem was not the use of the "exploit," but the crushing grind that drove people to it in the first place.

And no, the net result is not going to be more people paying real money for dilithium and giving the "legitimate" foundry missions another look. The result will be small fleets abandoning Base development projects and many people ignoring the foundry entirely until another "exploit" is found.

You can either continue to fight a losing battle against free will, or respond to the desires of your customer base.
