I don't believe in macro-ing. I think if you are going to play a game, you should be responsible enough to sit there and play it. I also think games, old and new, have too much content based on repetitive actions, say trade runs, faction gaining... when that happens, you can expect the macto-ers to start macro-ing. I would be more than willing to help write storyline/missions if it would help cut down on the busy work (trade runs). But...I DID all my trade runs in person. *sigh* I have to admit, though, I had one of those L6 shields that reflected quite a bit of damage on the Chavez without my direct observation in Live. I have friends that macro'd, too. People that have to work for a living may want to macro the "not-so-fun" stuff so they can spend their play time as quality time. I know I can hardly wait to get home from work.
