Removing SPEC to "make the game more fun" is certainly having an opposite effect. There is a faction of players that actually like to take a break from the game, crack jokes and chat in spec. I got to know more players from hanging in spec than I have in the last year playing the game with no spec. So now everyone is anonymous and that is horrible for the game. I know some have a 3 minute timeout - but 30 seconds is all you need. By the time 3 minutes has ticked down, I'm gone. So let's get some data to help the admins understand whether this is just my opinion or others feel Spec should be opened - either from start of game or no longer than a 30 second wait.
