It all depends on whether we want EA to be a robust, strong movement or not. The movement will be a lot more vigorous with more people, and most people (over the age of 30) are not extremists. When I was 16 I would have been considered hardcore. At 41 I am softcore. My personal version of maturity went in that direction - I chose to move my focus toward family, career, self-expression. When my life changes in a few years and family and career become less of a focus, I expect I will look hardcore again.
