Amen. I've noticed a rush of these guys this year, too. Maybe it's always that way and I've only noticed this season, but I'm not sure. The Cafe is great and all, but I find great joy in playing against people who have it as a resource the same as I do. That's a real test. Not me being able to swoop in on a guy because I know of this site whereas league-mates don't. Sure, the information is out there in other places if you look for it, but it's hysterical that people feel cheated when their precious Cafe doesn't act as the sole separation between what they know and what their competition knows. Takes a big part of the strategy out of it for me. As I said earlier, I get the most fun out of playing against an entire league of Cafe vets, who have access to everything I do, and any further extensive research done is all individual.
