“Asteroids are never” is a statement that concerns the present. It’s not a forward thinking statement like “will never” or “should never” that would address the future.
I’m not here to be a meanie to anyone, and definitely I am not trying to be mean to you. If it matters to you, I agree with encouraging people to work together over multiboxing. All I want to get across is that CCP has not weighed in with an opinion or official stance on the future, but only answered a question asked about the mechanics of refineries that was asked by someone curious about those mechanics prior to their implementation.
If you want to put forth the idea that ore should not be explicitly owned because it promotes cooperation between real people, I am all for letting people explore that idea, or discuss how to best attain it, but at the end of the day, this opinion is that of the players (or some of them), and the developers have not shared their own opinions with us as yet for us to know how they feel about where the future should take us in this regard.
I am glad you share your feelings with others on the forum. I disagree with what you said above, but that doesn’t mean I’m not interested in what you have to say. You may disagree with my interpretation. That’s fine. As long as you considered it for a moment, that’s all I can really ask of you.
