Mocking those seeking refunds is in no way a logical or reasonable response. You're behaving obnoxiously to what amounts to a SMALL minority who must otherwise be addressed.
Some people are dissatisfied and want a refund. There will always be them.
Some people may have done it accidentally. Some may have had a friend of theirs or a child of theirs do it without their consent.
Some people may have had a sudden financial crisis in which they can no longer afford to invest 240 dollars in a video game
If you're a lifetime subscriber like me and you don't plan on cancelling your subscription, don't just barge in and bray like a jackass at those who DO want to cancel and receive a refund. They at least have the decency and timing to ask this BEFORE the game's official release.

i dont want a refund on my lifetime sub. I didn't buy it for the headstart, i didnt get it hinging on a perfect launch day start. I really don't care if this game has a rough first week. i bought this sub for the long term, i bought it looking to end goal of systems like the genesis system, which when fully fleshed out it will be awesome.
imagine loading into the system getting told to examine the spacial anomoly on the other side of a nebula and have some strange non-corporal being invade your ship. Or beam down to a trading planet and being able to work through several quest lines not just one and done.
or how about warping past vulcan and have your vulcan officer pop up and have a mission he/she must complete on their homeworld. Then you could go into bridge view and find out that on your last away mission a rare sickness got on your ship and you have to find a cure, guided by your science officer.
those are the things that made me want to get the lifetime sub, some server issues in the beginning are irrelivent to my point of view.
Cryptic offered refunds on lifetime subs up until 30 days after launch for Champions Online. Having set that precedent themselves, they would have a very hard time doing less with STO.
I never thought about this, but they would almost HAVE to allow for refunds up to 30 days after launch. Because technically your lifetime sub doesn't kick in until after your 30 days of included game time.
