so it's kind of forgiven.
President's Day is considered a federal holiday so state workers still had to go in, but fed workers were off. For any other business not considered federal or is privately owned, it's really up to their boss if they are open or not.

Most "gamers" don't know how to protest or maintain self control. Its not about having a central place where everyone can protest. Its about actually consistently protesting in a large number and using sales as a weapon.

Look throughout the times where "Gamers" were "upset" about various games. No protest, no conviction. They stated their little complaint on a comments section and went back to the status quo like a child hoping to get another happy meal.
You're leaving out the fact that the most successful instances of player protest have one thing in common: a game architecture that can be crashed at will by collective player action.

If this really is a sticking point with users then they will organize a protest and stick with it until demands are met. Speaking with your wallet is a valid form of protest, but doesn't mean jack to the multi-million dollar conglomerate if you're the only one doing it.
Sad but true.

There are too many people in this game willing to accept (and even pay for) mediocrity, and the devs most definately feed off and make money from those who must have the newest ship, regardless if they have nothing to do in game with said ship.

Reminds me of a thread I saw a few weeks ago, where someone was mad that there was a limit to the ship slots he could buy. No way anyone could need damned near every ship in the game, but with people willing to fork over money despite failure after failure from the devs is what lets things like this happen.
