Facing the Machines of War - how to get rid of it

I picked up the Operation Quest 'Facing the Machine's of War' by mistake ( I was running round doing dailies for the weekly conquest points & managed to get this quest, other wise I don't bother with Iokath).
Given that I'm probably listed in the "weird people you meet in flashpoints thread," serious group stuff, (especially ops), is not for me in this game. How do I get rid of this quest from my log? I thought Ops were optional (I picked up the Oricon one by mistake and was able to abandon that one).

Help appreciated (abuse not so much).

I'm in the same boat. I'd really like to abandon the OP myself. Nobody has any information?

I'm probably a weird person too... but I got this (and all other SM Ops) done. And don't worry about being mentioned in that topic. On SM it has almost no mechanics. The only thing you need to do is to break from DPSing the boss to kill adds from time to time. And even if you don't do that you won't be mentioned in the topic because at least half of the groups I was doing it with were mostly tunnel-visioning the boss until either the boss or the group died
So, do the ops... or wait for BW to fix the bug.

Same as any other quest.
Open your log, select the quest, click onto abandon.

for some reason there are a few quests that you can not get rid of. I have i think the Ilum quest and abandon is greyed ut
I'm happy to pull my veins out
And braid a rope, I don't need hope

Apparently it could be abandoned at one point, if there's a 5.3 bugfix that allows it to be re-acquired. Yet at the moment, it seems fully railroaded (and even if it's abandon-able, the story still, presumably, forces you to take the setup, which it shouldn't do in the first place).

There was an update to the game recently. Why was this not fixed then? It's ridiculous.

You can only ditch Ilum once you get as far as the flashpoints which means it's nearly over anyway.

Yep, as the others have said, it can't be abandoned. It's annoying. I'm not doing the Op, so I'd rather not have it take up a mission slot.
