Isn't it funny that the word "adult" is used in "adulterated" -- as if the notion of adulthood renders things impure.  Well, in this case, certain forms of adulthood do due render this hobby impure.

I think you misunderstood my points.  The hobby has already changed.  Just like the car collecting, comic book collection and just about most other hobbies when they mature.   The same type of people who complained about the price of an Xmen#1 because people would just buy and display them and not read them, complain when someone buys an ALTAIR to sit on their desk and doesn't turn it on.   Better that than the garbage heap, without money coming into our hobby it would eventually die out and many artifacts would be lost to the dump.
