That's like buying a new car that is obviously ready to fall apart, and instead of buying a new one, you keep it in a car bag all day. I have Razer Vespula, it is hardened plastic with a gel wrist support, and I don't have to worry about fraying.
Silly really? How about if you had a cat that keeps walking on your desk from time to time every night? This is why i take it off my desk to keep it clean. I ain't that stupid. It also keeps my mousepad in good condition anyways. Not a big deal. Here's some tissues for your whining.

That's the silliest thing I've ever heard about a mouse pad. not to mention it isn't required under a standard warranty. If my pad lasts me 2-3 years I'll gladly buy another one. But please feel free to elaborate on how a mouse pad in a box is really extending the life of the pad anymore than it is sitting on a desk. Are you really that OCD?

I don't hit the sides of my pad. I don't eat green eggs and ham. I don't drink over my mouse pad nor do I see how that would cause fraying and your overall logic is baffling. The fraying comes simply from rubbing of my wrist against the front edge as I make large swipes with my mouse. This is actually very common with many gamers and friends that I know. There's a reason why manufacturers like the XTrac and Artisan make pads with fray resistant edges.

Hey noob read my post why i keep my mousepad clean. I live in a good old house, we all get small micro dust let alone cleaning your case every friday plus i got a cat that likes to keep getting on my desk. Also i have a Razer Mamba mouse and i like to keep my mousepad clean of lint and dust which prevents from wearing out. That is why i put it in the box, there is logic to it MR. SPOCK. Get out more "Sheldon."

I pack my mousepad back into the retail box when not in use such as if i'm out of the house or asleep. Prolong it's lifetime. I can tell you were obviously hitting the sides and maybe drank over the mousepad causing your pads to fray. I had this only a couple of months now and it's still like new. Trust me it's how you take care of it.
You apparently don't game often.

I personally take good care of my mice and pads by cleaning them every week, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm doing something wrong by properly using my entire pad to make large swipes.

What does you being anal about keeping your stuff clean have to do with habits used by an overwhelming majority of normal gamers and people?

Pads fray with heavy use, but it seems you wouldn't know that since you treat your stuff like it's some kind of collectors item. I mean, if you're honestly concerned about $15 to $30 every year or two, I think you should find a better job.
