Well thanks, it is better than nothing!
Let me try to advocate on that matter - Dan is right, as far as consoles go. Maybe it will be harder to pick up items without the dot, but surely it isn't impossible. And for most of us hardcore PC gamers, removing the dot will make the gameplay a lot more better and immersive! Maybe it will prove more frustrating to turn down our opinion and leave it as it is, at least I get it that way.
It is normal that this purely HUD issue will be very low priority, I get it. But at the same time it is also probably very easy to hide the dot (option to make it transparent) and deal with the matter. For most FPS games where crosshairs can't be removed by default, mods are made from fans (not the developer) which hide it and these games actually feel better that way. If some random dudes can make it happen, surely a game developer could do it too, easily.
In the end, if not excessive time consuming (it shouldn't be), why not make the dot optionally visible? Variety makes sense - everybody will be able to enjoy Deliverance the way he likes the most, and @warhorse would only be praised for that option. Seven months till release seem like pretty much time to do it, even with very low priority.
Hope that the team will decide to make it happen. All due respect to you, Dan and the rest!
