In regards to FMAdub chat  
Most of you know about the idea for a chatroom that I had back when FMA first started airing on Cartoon Network. It was to be a place to meet when FMA aired on Saturdays and Thursdays so we could all watch and see the episodes togehter, and more importantly to react to the dub in general. The chat became even more successful with members of the English cast were brought into the room.

For those who DON'T know, the chatroom is accessible through AIM (and thus AOL), by inviting your own screen name into chat, and by being sure to name the room "FMAdub."

With more and more fans coming to FMA and to this community, that means more people that might want to come to chat. It IS a public chat room after all.

That said, I now come to the point of this post: the "smut" that occurs in the chatroom.

I do not appreciate coming into the chat room to find people essentially CYBERING--there is no better term for roleplaying someone panting and moaning, calling out someone's name, and moving rhythmically and what have you. Acting out sex IS cybering, and it should NOT be done in public view.

I know not all who role-play participate in such acts, but I'd appreciate an end to drawn out role-playing that is essentially an excuse to throw chosen character together for self-gratification.

The "FMAcrack" room was thought up for a reason. If you don't want to use that room, fine, make up your OWN room, but please, take the overdone rp smut elsewhere. Just because people don't say anything about it, doesn't mean they like it. Or maybe they don't mind it much, but after a while it DOES get to them. It alienates some people, be it by making them not want to return to chat, or by making them ignore the chat mostly while the ARE there. I'm not banishing anyone (not that I had the ability even if I wanted to), and I'm not telling people not to have fun. What I am saying is that I want FMAdub to remain a general room where ALL fans can have fun.

If you want to have your smutfests, by all means, have them, but, like how people do IRL--GET A ROOM!

Thankyou for listening, and sorry for taking this to the community--it was the only way I knew of to get this message to those who needed to hear it.

PS: My mood is cranky cuz my cat walked on the keyboard, deleted the post I originally typed up. BAD KITTY!

people are going to do what they want to
no matter what you say
and since you cant ban people from the chat room, people are still going to do it whether or not you want them to
espically since its public, and now that youve complained about it

i do get annoyed with the smut sometimes
other times it ammuses me
but i just keep reminding myself that the fmadub chatroom is the most popular/well known one and is the one that most people go into first so thats why that room is the one that is most likely to have smut going on in it

and i do admit that this post has alot of logic to it... i just want to leave you with this:
"get over it"

The smut has a way of miraculously disappearing when I enter the chat room, so overall there isn't anything for me TO get over.

I'm doing this post as much for the sake of others who I know agree with me as much as for myself, but even more so as a request for people to have SOME decency.

well from what i can tell, there usually isnt to much smut going on...
but im usually in there from 9pm-6am est so i dont know about the hours that im not in there...
but i think on an average, theres about, a smut rp twice a week in there when im there, and the people usually get distracted as soon as someone else comes in and is usually done when there arent alot of people in there

but yet again, thats just based on the times that im in there

Another reason I'm addressing it now is BEFORE it becomes a big problem. Easier to battle as well...

true true

but then again, these actions, like i said before, my just encourage it
because if i was one of the non-crack-filled smut RPers, i would read this and then do it more just to piss you off

and i leave my argument for today with that since i need to get up in 5 hours and you and someone else has succesfully put me in a really bad mood to the point where im likely to go beat a small child with a stick
good night

Wow, me inspiring a bad mood, that's not something I can claim to do that often! XD

Actually, the thing that annoys me in chat the most isn't the smut itself, it's coming into chat and finding out that I have to talk in parentheses so that I don't 'ruin' rping that's going on.

And usually when people do something becuase it was pissing someone off, it's so over done that it's rediculously amusing in it's own way. That sort of humor I can take and understand.
