Re: Throwing the Ferengi out with the bath water?
I happen to like the 'evolution' of the Ferengi, as it makes perfect sense that in a society that is driven by greed and avarice, you'd have people like the The Last Post Ferengi and DaiMon Bok existing alongside the likes of Quark, Gaila, Goss, and Zekk, and honestly don't think the Ferengi would have been as interesting if they'd been written and portrayed the same way from the beginning.
