I still stand by my thoughts on this. Besides, Crypt is not the only aspect of the game and, at least on my home server S3, few players are hurting for gold anyway. 1 or 2 inactives for Crypt lines, sure. But more than that is unnecessary. There are also temples and GW to consider.
The comradery and team interaction is what keeps me going and motivated as well. We are a little family and having a parking lot (nicely put @Reveille) doesn't do anything for morale and group cohesion. If they aren't playing then we don't particularly want them around.
