For every player you've heard express that opinion, I'll be that I
can find another player that likes the stuff being there. I, for one,
like to see it. I don't always read it but I like the role-playing
atmoshpere it gives the game. As a matter of fact, I'll be tthat that
would be the break down of any voting on the subject. Those interested
in role-playing would be for it, those primarily into the power-gaming
aspects would be against it.

Just my 2 cents worth.
