If it's the latter, I can somehow understand the fear of succumbing to temptation. Perhaps offering an easy mode would be like offering an alcoholic a galss of whiskey, in which case we should perhaps abstain from the game, like one abstains from alcohol in the company of addicts.
But if it's the fomer, I can't understand why it should matter to anybody, how or why others play the game, or what the game is to them.
