This is Cryptic's doing - now with the new reputation system - and starbase system - every assignment costs massive amounts of EC(commodities) to run.

A Omega rep mission could cost as much as 200k of commodities - so people actually do NEED whatever they can get their hands on to recycle/sell to get EC to buy the commodities to run the rep system.
