If you don't want to get those 2s just don't buy boxes and wait till someone put what you want on the auction house then buy it.
What if nobody puts it on the auction house? Pavane Accessory is a good example. A great accessory, but it's damn hard to find a 3s, while there are all these 2s lying around in AH that nobody ever buys.
If they want to know all the news of the game, It will pick up by themselves instead of being lazy.

Why do your responses have to sound condescending to players who are simply making a suggestion? eTO did send its players newsletters. If NTreev/SGI thought not having it would make the players lazy, they wouldn't have done it in the first place. There is obviously some merit to having a newsletter, even if the GMs think it's not necessary for this server.
And even with doing newsletters, eTO still closed down. Like I said above, no for now but who knows in the future. ~ aran
