You can feel free to just go ahead and discuss around them.  GC is more than capable of handling two conversations at once.  

I agree with Hath.  This is pretty much what the channel was made for.

That said, GC has turned into a swamp of bad blood and lunatic accusations. Saying, "If you don't like it, leave," is the aggressive version of threatening to abandon, at least in my book. Just because nobody can stop misbehavior on the Internet, doesn't mean that these antics are mature or intelligent. Look, there is only one main chat channel in this game. Many of us play long-term because of the Illyriad community. When every single conversation gets derailed by angry people crashing in for unrelated server war trash talk (or prancey-dancey rubbish about bears), it gets frustrating for people just trying to have a normal social discussion.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: the rest of us wish you guys would just shut up and fight.


since the demise of the bitter sea, frustrations are vented through the forums in a more.... gentile way
war talk IMO..Doesn't dictate GC..yes there are times when it crops up and yes...it ends as quickly as it starts
non warring players have to understand sometimes the topic in GC will go onto the present war..for crying out loud ...its a major event in the history of ILLRIAD....some people have to understand you cannot simply brush events such as this under the carpet and pretend it isn't happening...so yea Ropa and others...go bury your head in the sand and get on with your GC cuddles and snuggles and let the creators of a new era get on with their job, even if that means having to put up with some war talk in GC.
NO..I dont do the Fandango!

LOL. I think you mean 'genteel'. A word indicating politeness and chivalry. Gentile is an archaic word for non-Jews.

Maybe there's room for everything.  Hur hur wargarble garble, snuggling, bears, knitting, people complaining about people wargarbling or knitting ... the whole gamut.

Maybe we need to learn to tolerate each other.  Maybe we'll even find that we enjoy each other, if we keep an open mind.

Wow, now ain't that a grand proclamation ... one has to wonder though what ELSE people might have to "put up with" while "the creators of a new era get on with their job". Wink Tongue

I have no issue with constructive conversation about the War BUT...

Many times the "war" talk is just insults being thrown at people and that is wrong... Or how some people that know how to push others button will sit there and try to get them in GC so it can become a rant fest.  ( no offense Hath I have seen you yell in GC for Kumo, making snide remarks to try to push his buttons under the guise of "war" talk.)  That is the type of behavior that most likely has sparked the reaction from Ropa.

Ill take Hath calling Kumo out in GC over TVM and T-O members calling the other side rapist and such. Then stating its fine  cause the shoe fits.
