Once you hit the gravity necessary to avoid permanent damage which would likely be at least a bit lower than 1G it seems that staying low would be better for reducing stress on the body.

I think it's most likely that people will be most comfortable in 1G because it's our native environment though.

The moment your little sibling or parents like something it has lost its haute couture status.

After a hard day's work, I doubt many would dislike a lower gravity. I'm thinking 0.9 or 0.8 g not mars level though.

In general yeah but I can see there being small effects on the body that don't impact long term health and only manifest after a while in lower gravity that annoy people.

I can't imagine any from just 0.8 to 0.9 g. But with completely zero examples, it's anybody's guess.
I almost know that that would help my GF's foot swelling problem, my mother's badly healed bunion removal, and her husband's knee issues, for examples.
I doubt even futuristic medicine will ever completely heal every problem back to factory settings.

Well assuming that copyright laws don't get more draconian.
If you assume one unreasonable thing why not assume two?

That way leads to chaos. I like to have only one or two impossible features in my universes.

Isn't there one suggested writing rule for science fiction about limiting your self to one implausible change?

Anyway I didn't say it was unreasonable if you look it in the context of some SWAT style raids that have been done on the behests of some major copyright players.

You beat me to it.

I could go on about the DMCA, SOPA, Hilary Rosen's tenure at RIAA... but this is Steve Jackson Games. This of all message boards is the last place I'd expect to find someone underestimating the zeal and draconian measures the feds will undertake to enforce private intellectual property rights.
