Jeez, I"m not trying to scare anyone. I'm a little cautious and due believe there is slightly increased longterm wear, but it's NO big deal.
Some bikes will last longer than others anyway. A bike ridden by heavier guy will last a bit less. So will one that is ran much harder. Or idled a lot more. I really wouldn't worry. It's just one of many factors. An are that's harder on joints at one angle is easier at others. Dave gave a pretty good explanation a while back. A far bigger danger than any arm/shock combination is just plain old clapped out (poorly damping) shocks or very sagged springs. Not to worry. Enjoy.
