Reconsidered.

So, I may have my opinions as does everyone, but I sometimes wonder if people think about their opinions. I know that I do, and I do it quite a bit. I am the first person to say that I am wrong when I reconsider things. I have no concerns for consistency over intellectual honesty, in other words I have no problem changing my mind and admitting it. And I have changed my mind on something and I have changed it pretty quickly. I don't think it's so bad that people make money off of people that buy gil. I think the problem is that my pragmatism was being overwhelmed by my sense of morality and general anger at the state of the economy. I was finding gremlins where ever I looked and that is not a good state of mind to be in. Let me say that I still think it is a bad idea, and I do think that people could do a better job of policing themselves. The problem is that it is hard to make money in this game, and I don't think at this point it is necessary for me to deride people that are just trying to get by. Basically, I was taking a vow of poverty, but doing it unintentionally, and I don't want to wish that onto any of my friends ever. Also, I was tilting at windmills. I have absolutely no control over other people buying gil, so why worry so much about it? I probably won't ever be in a position to make gil on people like that to begin with, but I have friends that can do it. Why should I be yelling at them, instead of just yelling at the people that are buying the gil? That's right, I shouldn't.

No, I am not being sarcastic. I do wish that the gil buyers that buy Imperial Wootz ingots in groups of 12 driving up the price massively would die in a fire though. :)
