F2P isn't really a threat anymore. It would give us lifetimers/and those that continue to sub free C-Points every month. There have been many people coming here and making the same claims already. If you goal was to make people freak out and panic, then you failed.
Also, why is it always the newest members to the forums/game making these claims?
And here I go feeding the poor troll. If and when STO goes F2P the devs will tell us and not some randon trial account and most likely gold farmer and in game spammer. Go back to WoW with your elementry school chums because thats the state of your mentality.
Actually, pretty much any blatantly false rumor has been shut down. I dont recall any that havent, but feel free to link to them if you do.
Also I think everyone is well aware it is the weekend, so thanks for pointing that out. Its what happens tomorrow that will show whether this rumor has any validity or not.
Lol, so you want links from me proving that devs don't answer each and every rumor thread.. but the OP can say something without a iota or proof and if the devs don't respond, its true.
You can look em up yourself, there's dozens of tinfoil-hat posts per week.
We can take the advice from Wishstone from one such thread she DID respond to though:

The way that comment came to be? Chances are like this:
User is angry (OR User is bored)
User tried to rock the boat
Other users tell him to chill, but he gets a bit of an audience
User makes up a 'fact' to be more interesting / to get other users on their side
Other users believe it can tell others because if someone said it, it must be true
Myself? I've not heard from anyone in this office that 'effectively 70 percent faulty code in the Season 4 patch ... and that it would take some ten weeks to correct.'. Not from one person, including DStahl.
Note that she didn't ACTUALLY deny it, not did another dev.
