My points are logically founded and self evident. I don't think you seem to understand what rationalizing means. It means to "bring in accordance with reason, to... make seem reasonable". That is, you are the one who is stretching, twisting, and forming your position to "make seem reasonable" when it is counter to the concept we are discussing. Krono's circumvents game play by allowing OUTSIDE game influence (ie real money) to gain IN-GAME accomplishments (ie money aquisition which allows for items to be bought, there by bypassing the game play required to gain the money). Your argument is invalid. Now you can argue that you are ok with this, that you subjectively think that people should be able to buy progression for whatever reason you want to justify, but... your attempt to twist the meaning of words, to ignore definitions, to ignore logic to make your argument? It is not merely invalid, it is asinine. Also, just because it has been happening doesn't validate it happening. Murder, stealing, etc... has been happening since the dawn of time, by your argument, we should just accept it and approve of it... you know.. cuz always happend.
