That's not really disagreeing... It's actually pretty much agreeing.

Anyway, consider the size of the fleets and their stance on progression. A larger fleet, the individual weight is pretty low, even if they're serious about progression, and there's enough hands to cover if you slack off. Casual fleets where progression isn't an active part of business also put little individual demand on members, but for the opposite reason. In both cases, you've got some more leeway in what you do with your alts.

A smaller fleet that's serious about progression, though (and there's a lot of them - they're the ones driving dilithium and doff prices), can be a huge individual burden - it can take a network of alts just to funnel in enough doffs and dilithium to make a worthwhile contribution.
