Although I rarely speak out about things, I do find it necessary to make a post about an instance that has recently occured. I will, of course, not name anyone specifically and will keep it general in order to avoid the blame game.
Although this is a game, you should keep in mind that there are real people playing. This means that when you call people names oocly, it can make them feel hurt or upset. When you call someone a "grinder" or "whiner" (even if it's true!), they will most likely not take kindly to it.
Therefore, I would like to ask all of you to follow the common laws of courtesy. Don't call each other names. If you become angry or frustrated, leave the computer screen for a bit before coming back. If you don't like certain people, no one is forcing you to rp with them; avoid them, if you wish.
On that same token, try not to take it too personally if someone calls you one of these names. The person is, of course, in the wrong for doing so. However, these -are- just words on a screen. There are other people that you can rp with.
Thank you.

-Management

Some of us are having a really hard time in real life. The person even went off at me at some point. The difference is that my whole family is like that 24/7 so I can handle it and cool down people.

Quitting over this would be highly disapprovable.
Please do not.
