GOG stated that they won't take any action to force devs to keep their games DRM-free. It is all up to the devs/publishers.
Except they never said that, you are making things up, a couple of ticket being closed is not equal to a "official statement".
It may not be an official statement as in a 'Good News (TM)' announcement and if you read carefully, you will see that I didn't use the word 'official'. GOG would be stupid to state something like that officially. But their actions are a statement nonetheless. Closing a ticket as 'solved' with a 'none of our business' remark is a statement, that they won't do anything about the problem. The tickets concerning DRM in NMS weren't marked as 'escalated' or as 'in progress'. They were 'solved' and GOG's solution was to do nothing.
Maybe they informed Hello Games that some of their users wanted the DRM gone. Who knows. They never answered to questions about their communication with Hello Games and the status of the problem. So, with complete silence from GOG, the only thing that speaks for them is their (in)action. Which is, at the latest after the release of CP, quite a clear language.
