Minecraft – To OP or not to OP?

I had a conversation with Grokk the day we brought the server up regarding OP (or operator) access. Basically with Operator access you get the ability to spawn any materials you want and just go to town building whatever you please. While this that this will also allow for some pretty insane building projects – and I’m not entirely sure what our server is actually capable of!

Me and Grokk both felt that it kinda takes away from the survival and exploration portions of the game and figure we’ll hold off on handing this status out. However, I have received about four different requests from players asking for this level of access and they sounded disappointed to the point that it was going to ruin the game for them.

I’d like to hear everyone opinion and open this up for discussion.
