Sure, there is a 'free' cure - if your character can get to Tatooine to get it. What I don't appreciate are the players who are traveling to starter worlds and infecting new characters who have neither 2000 creds nor a way to the free cure (remember, not every low level character is an alt). That is just being a jerk.
If you want to infect people, at least choose ones who can get the cure. That's not QQ, that's common decency.
Oh awesome, I never thought of that! Off to tython!
