That's one reason permadeath is a bad idea
Recently released Wizardry Online has been pulled from Steam due to numerous problems. One of which is "disconnections and other bugs resulting in item loss and permanent death". I can't imagine anyone being happy about permadeath, even if he died due to a decision he made himself. But losing your character permanently due to a bug or disconnect is never going to be acceptable. And I have yet to see the MMORPG which doesn't have bugs or disconnects.
