And I think wars should be fought with rainbows and unicorns and sugar drop gum balls. But guess what, we don't live in that world. Luckily for you, no one is forcing you to join a pool as has already been stated. Pool operators have expenses as you've already been told. Expenses that we pay for out of our own pockets. We're providing a service that makes you money. Why do you think we should shoulder the expenses while you gain the reward? But the great thing about Decred is that you don't need to join a pool. You think the fees are too expensive, fine. Don't join one. Even better, when the source is released, why don't you run your own pool? You can set the fees as low as you want. I'm sure people will flock to your service. Hell, I might even join myself. I've always enjoyed disaster movies.
