Waste your breath much?
Condescending dickwad, much?
I'm making the case that we should be playing the game better, and I'm explaining how I think we could. And your response seems to be, "Well, that's not practical because they're playing the game better." Nobody's getting "up in arms" about it; I'm simply describing the situation as it happened, and explaining what the problem is and my proposal for a solution. If you'd rather just make excuses, fold your arms and say "whatevs bruh," then have at it, far be it from me to stop you. But that won't change my position.
The implication was more, while I think it's scummy, it's the way the world works. If they can get away with it, they're just playing the Big Chess Game better than the rest of us. I find that hard to get up in arms about. Just 'cause a lot of us have a moral code, doesn't mean everyone does.
For all the things that I never did
For all the places I never was
For all the people I never stopped
But there was nothing I could do..."
