That makes sense I suppose. On the flip side of that coin is that people have to learn sometime and once the initial rush of "wtf?!?!" is over, the community would be just a little more knowledgeable about it. I know I get a lot of people in LS chat who get all in a confused tizzy if I mention that I just gained a Sentinel rank...and I've had to explain to some of them what Sentinel is on a number of occasions.
I dunno. At the end of the day it's not going to ruin my forum experience one way or another, but you know me. I'm a stickler for accuracy. Spades being spades and all.
