Not sure how accepted the statement is, but I agree with it.

The way I feel on the issue is, with the gaming market being so competitive 
we should do what we can to help keep newbies interested in the game.  That 
includes enabling certain features that help new players better understand 
the game.  People don't want to have to read a technical manual to learn how 
to play.  From what I have seen, most want to be able to download and start 
playing right away.  The easier we can make it for people to get into the 
action of a game of Netrek the better chance we have of keeping them.  All 
the features currently in place seem like reasonable tools to do this.
