They're woven into the forum. I have the highest post count, upvotes, downvotes, Awesome, Promoted (before it became BHVR Read), and probably others I'm forgetting.
There are people who already do gens in spite of the traps. Those people wouldn't really be impacted. I'm not sure that the people who don't do that already are would be comfortable enough doing it with Rules Set No. 2 active (whether it be base-kit or add-on). If it really were enough to sway a noticeable number of Trapped Survivors who would otherwise not continue working on a gen to actually keep working on gens, that would make Rules Set No. 2 a completely horrible add-on IMO (though I already don't think it's worth the add-on).
