But... I like making pieces active without moving them. Sacrifice a few pawns and clear the clutter away. Knights have to move, but I've had the Queen or bishops very active and useful from their home squares, just by giving nasty looks at where they COULD go. Saves time, saves tempi. Confuses people. March the a or h pawns down the board and see how threatening your rook becomes.
