Personally, I have always been an advocate for the concept of freedom of choice and the player choosing whether or not to perma-death. However, I am not exactly against the idea the rule is bringing into discussion. Value of life has diminished on RP and we have lost the fear of the consequences of our actions on this server, the idea would spark consequences and fear for life again. It's not perfect as stated previously but no rules here are perfect either, so trying to adjust to it doesn't seem that bad.
