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!
