I will never go back to fleets.
In my fleet you can only get booted if you do something like selling provisions for personal gain or otherwise cheating someone, or are offline for 3 months. In the changeover we are about to implement the requirement for buying provisions will be 100,000 credits worth of contributions during your time in the fleet. We don't progress all that fast (working on T4 shipyard now, halfway to T4 science and engineering, and have T2 on all the embassy stuff) but we have a relaxed, fun atmosphere.
It doesn't have to be the way you describe, it's just that some fleets really do take it too seriously, and turn game time into a second job. I don't have time for that, I'm a college student, but in my fleet I'm helpful and knowledgeable enough that I've been promoted to very high rank.
