Figured this topic would be dead by now..but I digress. Do you guys 'really' think NG is stupid enough to assume, that what amounts to a handful of people showing back up in the wake of this remake is going to equate to 'Oh, they are going to stick around now'? They're likely fully aware that this influx is indeed temporary and a direct result of TRR. They are likely /also/ fully aware that NOT cooperating with Stephen will take each and every last one of those people that came in from this back away just as quickly as they came.
So do I think these new subs are going to cause them not to cooperate? Hardly.
