Staff of Herding Plans cannot be discarded

If you pick up a Staff of Herding plan when your armorsmith already knows it, then you are stuck with it. It cannot be dropped in town or sold. It seems to me that the correct fix is to allow us to drop it in town like we can do with the other staff ingredients (Leoric's Shinbone, etc).

I also have this issue. I also have plans for the portal device that I can not drop or do anything with.

I opened a support ticket (in the wrong area) and got a helpful answer, I'll paste it here to help you guys:

Hello! Thanks a ton for letting me know that you needed to speak with us! And thanks for waiting for me. We're having a lot of our players contact us at the moment which is making the wait time go up.

I actually had this happen to me a few weeks ago.

While we do have plans to fix this, currently there's only one way to get rid of it.

To do that, send it to a character you don't care about or make a new character. Put it in their inventory, then delete the character.

After that you'll be good to go!

They've got a plan for the plan, they just haven't implemented the fix yet:

We've already got a fix planned, though, that will allow you to drop the item on the ground or "sell" it for 0 gold to a vendor.
