Well I think its because when people tend to use a board to post what they dislike about something instead of giving praise to it. I mean you can look at some of my posts on here and more often than not they are praising your work (along the lines of "if I were a gal I would so love to have your love child" and "when I have my first child I am giving it to you as an offering". I think while the time option is giving some people problems (those who cant read the limitations of it and the directions to use it) there are a majority of people who have used it correctly and have enjoyed the experience but their posts of praise are outshadowed by those who for whatever reason cant understand that there is only so much yall can do with options. So while it might look like everyone was jumping all over the trainer because of that time option there were a whole bunch of people who loved it.
Now its your trainer and you can do with it as you please but I would just say "Here's the trainer with the time option, if you can't follow directions and use it correctly then that's your problem and not ours". But hey if you want to pull the option then go ahead, heck you can pull the trainer completely if you don't want to deal with the negative Nancy's. I am just saying that there are people out there who do like the trainer and liked the time feature.
I would agree with what you said. Heck I even asked not to have Freeze Timer removed if they planned to remove something. I know the first build of the trainer had a few issues in only Tank Mayhem but that was because it was un-known that the Freeze Timer was not only tied to the Timer but was also tied into the Combo bar freezing.
Freeze Timer + Lock Combo = MOST EPIC SCORE EVER!
