    I was thinking today about how much /dispose seems to upset people and had an excellent idea. I'm not sure if this would be easy to code (let alone possible), but here's my idea:
    When an item is dropped by a player, set the nbt tag for age to be 5999. I'm sure anyone who has experience with plugin code/nbteditor knows what this means, but for the common man, here's a quick explanation. Item entities (basically anything you can toss on the ground like a pick or a block) have 2 variables that are unique to item entities: age and health. Age is the variable that allows an item to despawn. After 5 minutes (6,000 ticks), an item despawns. By setting an item's age to 5999 ticks, you make it despawn after .05 seconds. It takes much longer than .05 seconds to pick up a thrown item, so there's no way to give out free gear by hand. This also removes the need for the /dispose command.

    In short, setting the age of player-dropped items to 5999 would allow players to dispose of items by simply dropping them rather than opening up the /dispose GUI. This would make players happy by not having to be vulnerable to sort their inventory and it would make the owners happy by making sure there's no abuse by giving stuff away.

    My alternative would be /d or your drop key (Q I think is default) disposes of it

    Yeah that isn't what I suggested I don't think, I mean shortening the /dispose to /d not getting rid of it and also the normal drop command disposes of it rather than dropping it

    It's a nice idea, but seriously, what is wrong with /dispose? Why are so many people heartbroken over a system that lets you drop half your inventory at once??

    It's because you have to type the command twice in order to dump an inventory full of junk. It's be easier to just spam the drop key.
