I don't post at the GDB because I'll simply be censored, and my thoughts and feelings of the GDB are well documented. Anyone who has been around knows the GDB is meaningless to the spirit of the game itself, in fact it may be detrimental to the integrity of the game. I can play Arm and not post on the GDB in fact historically that is when I enjoy the game the most. I've been posting here for years since it opened up and I would never stop posting here because people generally enjoy my input, videos, and stories.
I get what you're saying about people wanting to protect their investment in Arm or their karma. I rarely if ever cared about that aspect. I had the mentality that if I want to play I will with a VPN, now I have the mentality that if Arm staff don't want me around I will gladly walk away. It's simply a shift of mindsets. I used to think I needed Arm, of course that's what a young shy introverted teenager thinks. The social interaction, the adventure, the mystery, the time frame was perfect for me to become enthralled by a game like Arm. Now I don't look at it that way at all, I really don't need Arm, I have many other things in my life now. Quite the opposite I look at Arm as needing me.
I try not to worry about bans or losing karma, or what staff think of my PCs or any of that nonsense that I cared so deeply about years ago. Of course I used to think about getting karma, or being viewed in positively by staff or the community but that is pointless. It's the internet there's no way in hell I'm going to convince anyone about anything.
Basically if I can't control something I just don't worry about it at all.
