seriously, this has been discussed ad nauseum through the years.

I don't know, just doesn't make sense to me. I guess the liability excuse would work/make sense if they didn't allow trades as well. In that regard, I'd be interested in knowing what the liability issue since they allow trading to happen and don't do anything to protect people (can't imagine how they would anyway) even though they require people use their trade tools. I'm curious in that aspect that I like to know the ins and outs behind something. But similar to what you said, there aren't any Beckett people that roam the boards frequently to answer these questions.
I haven't been here "through the years" so my bad if I haven't seen it discussed "ad nauseum".

I think eveyone should be comfortable with the person who breaks. I watch alot of these breaks on youtube. My buddies friend does them. Ive always wanted to get in on one. Even the mystery packs sound cool. Use a site like Random.org to pick out the spots and such.
