This is in responce to the AFK thing that you responded to.

It's called FARMING. People who aren't interested in helping out but want to collect the goodies that come about in the STF's. It was most popular in the RED ALERT missions when they first came out and spread to STF's later in the game. I would estimate 1 out of 5 STF's has a Farmer hiding somewhere in the distance.

Another popular method of Farming is to set their weapons on stun and chase a probe, sphere or BOP off into the sunset. It looks like they are playing but they arent.
