I was playing on my legit main, doing what I normally do, and I realized....
Cheating has made me significantly kinder and more generous to my fellow players.
I'm more willing to gift random items (codestones, morphing potions, pb's), because I know I can easily earn more. I see some young kid dreaming of owning a draik? BAM! pirate draik egg for you!
I'm more willing to down trade or take "risky" pet trades, because I know I can just "trade" for one of the pets I took off an inactive and lose nothing. You want to trade that BD pet for a UC and can't find any offers? Don't worry, I got you.
I'm more willing to gamble, take risks, and generally enjoy myself more because the "valuable" items I thought I had to protect? Easily replaceable.
Anyone else notice similar results?
I like helping people I talk to on the boards all the time. Neo wouldn't be fun to me if everyone I played with we're miserable too
I don't know - I generally feel like I have always tried to be kind when interacting with people on site, and I enjoy gifting things now and did when I was legit as well. Now that I know how most cheating on Neopets doesn't really hurt others I get really irritated with the stupid PC people/reporters because they make it their mission to make other Neopian's lives hell. Before I didn't even know anything about all of that since I had no idea you could buy pets
All the stuff I have in reserve came off inactive accounts, but it's provides that freedom of knowing "Anything I lose I can make up again. It is never gone forever."
It's a heady feeling.
Definitely! I've given away millions of NP in items. Before I started cheating, I would scoff at people who even hinted at wanting hand outs, and now I'm just like b'aww poor bb let me help you with your dream
This renaissance has led to a plethora of cooperation such as the pound chat and illegit pets, and the bd chat and big weapons getting frozen.
This cooperation is a menace to society! D:

Neopets is like alcohol.
First you try it out for fun.
Then you do more of it and immerse your life in it.
Then you become bored and addicted.
The excitement and pleasure you once had in it is gone, replaced by dependency and repetition.
You no longer play for fun, but out of routine to avoid the misery of your withdrawal.
You become an empty shell of your former self.
