It's a tool, plain and simple. When used properly, it can be a wonderful tool. When used improperly by mouthbreathers, it can be an annoyance.
Reminds me of KASE, Donatra. Someone uses Repulsors to push her, and her Thalaron Cone, directly into my line of sight, so I was quite literally staring down the barrel of the gun.
That said, I personally have used Repulsors to great effect. Pushing enemies into a Grav Well, or Warp Plasma, or keeping them away from an objective, or even pushing a Dreadnought away from the Transport in No-Win, then dumping Warp Plasma on it myself so the team could heal up the Transport.
It's a tool, and it's all in how you use it.
Constant exposure to the same opinions leads to continual reinforcement of ideas until eventually, any challenge, no matter what form it takes, is going to be met with a disproportionate sense of outrage. Room for reasoned discussion can no longer occur.
