No Elite: Dangerous Launch Wipe

The Frontier Developments forums have word that there will not be a progress wipe upon the official launch of Elite: Dangerous, so those who have been playing the beta have a leg up on future players. Though the Internet rarely spawns disagreements, there are mixed reactions, and the 100+ page thread includes expressions of joy as well as complaints that this sanctifies the actions of some who have exploited prerelease bugs.
