Why does every tech thread have to turn into a pissing contest? Just debate the merit of the tech, whether it's useful or not, in what situations, etc... However, debating whether it is actually "tech" or not, or whether it's known, whether other characters have it and so on seems totally pointless to me.
And it always results in those posting tech to regret it. Again, "it is known" is the worst argument ever. It is known does not mean everyone knows it.
