What did the dev's say was the main reasoning for dynamic affinity?  (sounds like a romance novel )

I just confirmed what was said with the api calls on my laptop here so it is true in that regard.  

The intent, was to prevent multiple instances of the client from picking the same core, which is funny, cause as the previous poster pointed out they still are sometimes.  In nearly all cases, allowing the OS to control affinity is the best answer, unfortunately some guy at SoE didn't agree.

I have a PM from that guy on my banned forum account, I can see if I can locate it.
