Have they nothing better to do with their lives?
As a matter of fact, they don't. That's why they're so cranky. They find themselves stuck in limbo. Do they move forward with the franchise? They don't want to, but they've got nothing else. They understand capitalism, and they understand whining on the internet won't bring the past back, but they've got nothing else.
NuTrek or find something else? It's a decision many of them just refuse to make at this time. So, do expect the frustration and unrelated-to-the-thread-topic whining to continue.
