At the end of the day, why send a long mission cruiser on a mission to Risa or Vulcan when an refitted older model ship will do the job?
Yeah really. Change out the old systems put in new ones and send the ship back into service. What do you get when you a 2409 model shield on a 2269 model ship? A ship with as tough a shield as a 2409 model ship. :p
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Because I don't want someone who complains about font choices to read what I have to day. It's not worth my time to type something when someone else is going to complain about its appearance rather than its substance.

People would be a lot more interested in your substance...,

if you weren't trying to be so 'cool' with the lousy color selection.

You don't get your point across, if people don't bother to read it.

Someone obviously doesn't understand sarcasm, even when it is blatantly dripping all over the post.

Sarcasm was understood...

But again, the WIT is non-effective if nobody (beside me) bothers to read it...

You might just as well have used RED for all the effect it would have had.

(seeing how 'dripping' and 'sarcasm' have red tonal meanings)

But that's just it - only those who bothered to read it would be "in" on the joke. Those who actually complain would be left without. A double entendre, if you will.

Regardless, this is the last I will say on the subject, or this thread. I find it idiotic that Cryptic makes old ships in an established "future" time, but I can't fault them for trying to make money. They are a business, after all. I just found it incredibly petty for someone to complain about font choice in a thread that's just arguing about a different kind of choice, is all.

Ahhh... Like Written Witticisms for the Legally Blind...

Jokes are best, when served in such a manner so as to invoke a response from the largest number of people possible.

In-Jokes, are for the mentally deranged. (in my humble opinion, of course)
