No we dont. Idlers are not a problem in fleet actions. Particularly on the space ones you don't necessarily need any help if your ship is good, and the reward structure is such that they're in fact competitive. I know I would've preferred to run some of them solo (or with a bunch of idlers) when going for the 1st place accolades. 1st place is going to give two purple items in S7...more idlers, less competition. And better they idle in fleet actions than STFs where every player is actually needed.
