Looks like alot of the touchy feely players need to grow up and just stop paying attention to general chat. I can get just as nasty as the rest of them on chat but what people seem to dont undertand its in fun and nothing serious. You just dont share the many types of humor thats out there is all.
Personaly i much rather see the crude in chat then boring convos of the mission they just did. And im sure i can speak for alot of players that do enjoy gen chat when i say its like taking a break from doing a mission or pvp. Sit on chat and talk trash. Sure alot of it can get out of hand but it doesnt last very long at all.
So instead of staying quiet and getting pissy about nothing that even concerns you, why not just say hey can we change the subject this is getting old. Or introduce a new subject. Lighten up and remember its a game and you can allways turn off general chat.
And maybe people that are willing to be obnoxious and crude to the point of annoying others shouldn't be so self centered, have so much of a narcissistic sense of entitlement that they should take chat that breaks the EULA to a private channel or /tells. I actually don't mind most crude chat myself, but if I'm not going to use it in a general or global chat channel. Just like I'm not going to tell crass jokes on a public street, but may at a party where I know people don't mind me saying such. There is such a thing as tact and decorum, and considering others. That isn't being "touchy feely", it's considering others and not mistaking rudeness as a virtue.
Let me guess, and I admit I could be very wrong, you're the sort that complains if you get banned for something you said in general chat, even if it does break the EULA, and better yet even if you KNOW it would probably break it?
