CCP selling SP is like walking in on the Pope wanking as he blarts all over a Tumblr creeper image of Satan's upskirt thong. I like it.

This is an excellent metaphor except for being pointless, inaccurate, irrelevant and horribly-poorly written. 

In my defense, I was horribly drunk...  why so serious?

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

That makes a great deal more sense, in that case.

Complaints are generally along these lines:

- that the reward is too desirable and will become "the norm", and thus a punishment to those who don't do the daily and "miss out."
- typical of CCP this will never be iterated or improved (or not fast enough) to reward activities other than PVE ratting.
- that CCP didn't reward a generic all-inclusive activity like "activate a module in space" and instead is "forcing" everyone to PVE rats.
- the reward is unfair to those who can't log in for whatever period.
- it's ruining the economy (or specific items in the economy).

There's a 100+ page complaint thread from when they first announced the feature, and now that they've announced it for Tuesday, a few small threads are popping up in General Discussion, re-iterating the various points.  Reddit had a couple threads too, yesterday when the announcement was made.

One thing that's unclear to me is whether this reward is per account or per character.  I believe the idea was presented as per account originally, but the announcement seems to say it's per character that performs the activity.  Guess I'll have to wait and see.
