People can discuss/post whatever they want as long as it's not carrying over to RL harassment.
Things that are fine: Complaining/outing characters or players Discussing how Vanth is probably mentally ill Posting IG secrets/information regarding active clans or players (soandso is a coded vampire and can be insta-killed by 'dispel magick') Making fun of Nessalin for being a geek
Things that are not fine: Posting specific information intent on carrying harassment over to real life - phone numbers, addresses, places of business, etc.
You suffer a penalty to defense. Meaning you will be more likely to be hit AFTER blocking/parrying is taken into account. However I dont really know the formulas all that well compared to other people. Doesn't seem right that you automatically hit every time if the person doesnt have the skill. I'm sure parrying is calculated still on some level. It also means you will be more likely to reel/crit people with that defense penalty.
Using advanced weapon skills are PERFECT for warriors. Why? Because other classes do not have those weapon skills. Not having a weapon skill means you are unable to properly defend it.
Let's say I'm advanced in piercing, bludgeoning, slashing and chopping. That means I will be able to better defend against attacks using ANY of those variants.
However, if my attacker is using a polearm and I have NO experience in using one, they have a significant advantage.
Polearms increase your parrying ability. Razoring destroys armor. Pikes are apparently terrible. Tridents might do heavy damage, that is just a guess though. Knives maybe increase your speed, that is just a guess though.
Just going off what people have said on this forum. It would be nice if we could flesh what we know in this department.

lechuck: most players who can string a sentence together have left for games where such a skill is actually recognized as an asset

mehtastic: The amount of Armageddon refugees I've run into on MUSHes is staggering. You can tell because it takes them 5 minutes to write "pose nods" around players who are belting out a paragraph every 2 minutes, then you ask them OOC and yep, they fled Arm.

mehtastic: On the flipside, I've seen a few former Armers in places like Arx and After Earth (which is an RPI) who are definitely there because Armageddon's quality dipped in the past 5 or so years. They usually reference Tuluk's closue as the reason why they left

nile: the only apoc drama be on an arm drama website. lol

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
