CCP will remove clone costs. While I'm unhappy about it, since a 100M SP pilot in a frigate is an abomination in my eyes (fly a capital or T3 you scrub), I don't really have a good argument against the change, so I don't argue.
However people have a very bad argument for it: "it penalizes people heavily for forgetting to update". This isn't an argument against clone grades. It's an argument for a popup warning you before undocking, like the one you get if you try to undock without the courier mission cargo in the ship.
