to me it appears that some people know what they are talking about and a mojority of them dont. i am sorry to say it this rude but it comes down to that. pures are fun to have if you like to train them, i see pures as a bigger challenge then training a mian because of the lack of defense and/or prayer. since the majority of pures are "n00bs,n33bz,noObs,narbs" (i put 4 synonyms so every pure owner under 12 years of age knows what im meaning) they dont understand the joy in having a pure : it is not the battles you win that make being pure so enjoyable it is the satisfaction that you have reached your goals wich were way easier to complete on your main. so therefore only the pures who create them because of the pking are the immature kids we all hate as much. i can also say some things about mains. a main is commonly the first account a player starts and decides to train every skill out of curiosity. if this player likes combat he can create a pure account. but mains who cant stand that a pure at their level can beat them in combat or hit way higher numbers are just as immature as the pures mentioned above. so basically we have some kind of racism as "no defense ad pray vs defense and pray" wich isnt fun for the gameplay therfore there is a simple solution: dont flame. a person owning a pure does not suck because you dont like him or his accounts. of course the same counts for pures, if your opponent has defense and you want to beat him then adapt to the fact that he has defence in stead of just enter"noob" or any synonym of that on your keyboard and just insult him because you are not any good for the acceptation of pures in the runescape-society.
