While it's been made clear, frequently, that mergers are not in the offing, I've never seen any discussion of the reason. I guess I assumed that, despite the obvious need for merges, there was some business or economic reason they would not be done. (In the back of my mind, I wondered if Turbine was trying to make money off of character transfers.)

Now, it's tempting to play the "I and everyone I know thinks merges are needed" card, but I and everyone I know aren't necessarily a representative sample of the player base. (I'm on Firefoot. The entire server wouldn't constitute a representative sample of the player base.)
So let me phrase my comment in the form of a question. What would a "need for a merge" look like, if it does not look like the current situation on the smaller servers?
