Here's a note. Half the people conversing are moderators. Maybe it's me, but I reckon if you already got your answer (Aardwolf) and its moderators that you feel are the one's de-railing your topic which is of no further use to you that you might just be best off moving on.

I'd say if you're a pkill player on a mud then you are gambling. Heck even on a mud where dying means you lose something (meaning muds, not console games, those typically have savepoints, you can load back to full eq if you die, another player can't loot you, a mob can't eat your corpse, etc.) Gambling with your time perhaps, not your money, but there's not much difference. Especially considering the adage, "time is money".

An adage is only that, an adage. How is time money for a retired person or homemaker who muds?

It is just as much as for anyone else. Retired people can go back to work and make money with their time, much the same way as homemakers can get a job and make money with their time if they so choose.
