If you're against reusing material then you should be against reusing material.
How did I know you'd resort to such a simplistic argument? I don't have a problem reusing material or concepts as long as they're executed well on screen and are part of a well-told story. Material that's re-used under different circumstances smacks of laziness, but I should know better than expect anything more sophisticated from a blowhard like Abrams, who hasn't told a worthwhile story since Alias
