“But...but...ibusoe!! What you don’t understand is you’re comparing earth slavery with zalanthan slavery. They’re totally different things. For one Zalanthas is a high-g world that alone means you can’t compare the two. It makes all of your earthen ideas of slavery moot.”
On the topic of playing a slave: Gladiators can be pretty fun if you're a low-playtimes player and wanted some interaction. (Low meaning 2-6 hours a week.) It depends on the population of the city. There's times when you have 0 interesting fans and other times when you have a ton of interesting people to RP with. You get a lot more "freedom" as a gladiator than you do your usual House slave, so... it's not as bad for interaction. Your schedule is generally: Spar a couple times a RL night if your trainer is on. The rest of the time either heeding calls from the master or being social out in town.
The usual Qwerty style including staff apologizing, moving the goal posts, straw men, and asking for more evidence of other peoples positions.
While everything you said is actually true. And kind of almost exactly what I myself have indicated by stating "Hey. I read all of that and I'll respond in my usual style." Something I'm certain "everyone" who read my previous posts have understood without clarification.
I would caution you from making a post like yours. It's up to you, sure. But in an intelligent, self respecting society what you posted is bad mannered. In my opinion. I mean, before someone even spoke, you've began degrading their points and arguments, by going straight for the personality. You're imposing a message that nothing I will say has merit, no matter what is it I say. And while it's your choice, it kind of shows the futility of having a reasonable discourse with you. Don't you think?
The song everyone on these boards need to listen once, or twice.
I hate judging people (at least over internet) but, please consider this a friendly word: anyone who spends this much effort on this game should really consider some other hobby. Life may be full of valuable goals then reach high numbers on a text-based RPI game.
There are of course levels of cheating on everything. For this game, about learning how a code works can be considered as cheating or effective way of training one in some guidelines, I dont know. I may be cheating in that sense. it depends on IMMs.
By the way, about morals.. Life is not all really shades of grey. There are whites and blacks ie. rights and wrongs. "but why do you cheat, it kills the fun" may not be true, but depending how you use it, it may make someone indecent, evil, immoral, inmature..
qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
