What is the reason you're not participating? No interest?
This would have been a better way to begin the conversation than simply taking a cheap shot at the honor of clan Lucian members.
I'm certainly not opposed to playing PUC because it's a non in-game event, and character page recognition, while nice, is not that important to me.
My reason for not playing PUC is combination of a lack of interest and a lack of time. First, I work most weekends and don't have the spare time. Second, while I do enjoy AQ wars, most of my participation comes primarily in using my estates armies (which obviously can't be used in PUC), and although I occasionally warmonger when I have some free time (mostly during the middle of the week), I do so inconsistently because the grind of repeating battles waves grows tiresome. The thought of adding yet even more PUC battle grinding is therefore not very appealing to me. Even if I did have a strong desire to play, I would still need to decline because I simply don't have the spare time on the weekends. That is neither arbitrary nor silly.
