Why do we?
You say they lack (or have none) innovation.
You can't deny it.
Even the greatest K'NEXers started out with block triggers.
The K'NEX gun itself started with a block trigger.
So people are just shunning our orgin.
With out the block trigger, K'NEX guns would've NEVER existed.
Think about it.
Since newer systems were thought of and built, people just don't prefer block triggers. I don't hate block triggers, i just don't prefer them. It's not like we should all go praise them for they are our orgin, but we should just ignore them if you still hate them, or just keep in mind that this is our orgin and not even say a thing.
