Cooper's Bitter is pre-hopped. So, if you do a full boil, the brew will be more bitter than intended. Since Cooper's tends to shoot for the middle of the IBU range, doing a full boil will put it at the top of the range for the style. We're talking 40+ IBU vs 30.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
