The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)
So the end of the day, what we are left with something like:
YES Camp: We should have the choice
NO Camp: No you shouldn't
YES Camp: Why not?
NO Camp: Because
YES Camp: What is the reason?
NO Camp: Not telling
YES Camp: But you must have one
NO Camp: You're not the boss of me!
YES Camp: That's not a reason..
NO Camp: *throws tantrum* I CAN'T HEAR YOU LALALALA! MAKE THE BAD MAN GO AWAY!!
Now if there already were an option to disable seeing other people's pets, what would be the argument for removing that option? That more people would buy pets if the people who didn't want to see them would be forced to? That's pretty close to griefing: "If more people would be annoyed by me having a pet, then I'd buy a pet to annoy them. If only people who want to see my pet will see it, then I won't bother."
I will clear up my position as plainly as I can. I was asked if I wanted this feature, my answer is NO, I do not want this feature. I have no emotional ties to this feature.
Now if the question was, do I care if this feature gets added. My answer is again NO, again because I'm not emotionally attached to this feature. It is fun, but like anything else we have it can be abused.
Just so it is clear my suggestion was not curt or dismissive, my suggestion is that you convince Turbine Management that this feature will benefit their Game. Trying to win people over that cannot directly effect the result you want does not make your arguments for this feature any stronger.
You seem to be emotionally vested in having this feature added. Take the next step contact someone that can actually help you get this feature done.
I wish you the best in your efforts.

OK sure do it.....
But only if anyone who wants this implemented can never ever complain about any bugs if some major bug comes from implementing it
How about this, then?
NEW TO DDO STORE: Elixir of Visual Simplicity - COST: 40TP
For the next 3 hours, all cosmetic pets and companions that have no combat abilities or effects will appear invisible to you, as if they didn't exist.
Does not work in public areas.
TURBINE: I respectfully request 1% royalty on store purchases for your use of my design idea.
(I'm thinking of selling my forehead to advertisers if anyone is interested.)
I find them annoying and pointless but they do generate $ for turbine and the game........ so I vote yes.......but hey its turbine so why not have the option to *not see* other peoples pets sold in the store? New from the ddo store Easy off BAMMMM!!! and the stain is gone!!!!!
