I'll skip the ridiculous analogy.Yes. Because it's true.
I once read a news item about prisoners in a Chinese jail who were kept awake all night by the guards and forced to play WoW so that the guards could make a profit from the credits they gained. Those guys could justifiably complain about "grind". You and I only play ED because we want to. I take responsibility for my own actions, do you?
Yes, I do take responsibility for my own actions.
But I assume "guess I'll do something else with my time" is not the answer Frontier is going for and that's why we are here discussing how to improve certain aspects of the game.
Well, I guess some are just here to tell others "Don't like it? Get lost!"
