I think a common misconception about this argument is that there is only one valid point of view.I collect; I place the value of the item on the amount of work I invest to get said item. If i see someone else get it the same way, there is a kindred feeling in that we both worked very hard. If said item becomes easier to get, I lose a sense of investment and the item does feel different; it loses a certain something, that the french call... yeah. I think it's hard to argue that people don't understand why I would feel this way.But at the same time, those who do not feel that the item is worth, say 17+ weeks in Molten Core, still value the pet for it's "awesomeness". But, it is a different type. Many people may have the item before them, but it doesn't affect them in the same way. If they did not feel the need to grind to get the item as soon as possible, they probably don't mind that there are more out there. And to avoid misunderstanding, I don't think they are lazy or anything of the sort. They just value the pet's "awesomeness" in a different way. Their idea of whether a pet becomes less neatos mosquitoes is inherently seen from a different perspective.There is no right or wrong answer. And more importantly, it is not selfish or strange to feel a pet has lost a value that is truly only assigned by the owner. :D If value is assigned by an individual, leave it to the individual to decide how that value changes.Oh and read ZAMM, by Robert Pirsig... It's a good one! :)
