Gear from Cartel Pack BoP why?

My major piece of frustration with these packs is that the Gear is BoP (Bind on Pickup for new people) and I always get gear one character that I would rather have on another... problem is because it is BoP I can't send it to them, at the very least this gear from these random packs should be BoA... I am sure this has been *****ed about, but I didn't see the thread and I am not keen to hunt it down... please keep all insults about how lazy I am and not how stupid I am thank you.

New gear out of a cartel pack is locked (bound) to you for 36 hours, after that 36 hour mark you can trade or sell it as long as you have not equipped it on your toon or a companion.

Got a laugh from the end of your post.

Just throw everything in a bank tab for few days then mail to your alts, give, or sell it as you see fit.

The 36 hour bind was probably added for the "Shiny New Factor" to keep selling the packs early on. That way people who really want the new thing have to buy the packs to try to get it because they can't purchase it on the GTN right away.

Threads like this make me laugh. OP, you need to go back and spend a few minutes reading instead of coming on here belly aching about an issue that never was. Your "outrage" here gave me a good laugh though.
