First up i'd like to say thanks to you for doing your job right as community manager you should be as indeed you are the first dev to accurately gauge the reaction of eve community on the current issues, however i feel that the three items you have identifed (below)

"As I see it, the chief complaint is regarding the high cost of goods in the Noble Market. Second, many people are unhappy about the Captainís Quarters. Third, there are some performance issues with Incarna. "

are not 1,2,3, on our list of concerns but infact 2,3,4. The No.1 issue the No.1 question we want , need and deserve an answer to is WILL NEX SELL GAME EFFECT ADVANTAGE ITEMS (special ammo, ships etc) its a simple question and all we need is a YES or NO, this question could be re-phrased will eve remain a sand-box game or will it become pay-to-win. either way some will like it and some will not if you give us a straight unequivocal answer we can then stop speculating based of scraps of leaked data and choose to stay or unsub and go play summin' elce. All were asking is to be treated like adults told the truth so we can make our own informed decision.

I approve this post. Tell us whether you're going to do it or not, so we know if it's worth our time to play your game any more.
It's not like we're hanging here not knowing what to do.
Most of us will biomass the chars the very moment we hear from a CCP source that pay-to-win will be introduced.

You want to be sneaky about? You want to keep it secret till the last moment?
I understand that. The problem is, we kinda see where this is going, and we wont really wait very long waiting for you to milk us for the purpose of financing your other games.

On the other side, CCP Pann probably can't provide us with information about the issue anyway. Just trying to do the job.

Hang on in there Pann, sorry it's you they've thrown under the bus.

Quite honestly, they've made their statement. If they knew they would stick to vanity items only, they would have said so right away and brought the threadnought to a grinding halt. Evidently they didn't, so obviously their answer is either "we'll sell all that stuff you are afraid of" or "duh, we don't know yet" but that's only gonna turn into a "yeah, we'll do it anyway" after a few more rounds of internal PR.
