Keep spoilers/general IC info and secrets to the spoiler subforum. Try not to mix spoiler talk with code discussion: things like 'Kurac is a front for neo-nazis' doesn't need to be posted in skill-list or crafting threads.
I can understand both sides of the issue. I'm going to leave censorship up to the userbase though because I'm not going to hem and haw over what's IC info and deal with hurt feelings or more moderation than needed. As a compromise, I'd like to see an attempt made at keeping things separate: don't mix threads with IC info (like this one) with code talk. You don't need to drop in the assassin skill list thread that the head of Kurac is secretly a psion, etc and threads like these aren't places to go posting code stuff. You don't want to read Kadius's secrets? That's fine, don't read the thread then. My only real opinion is that I personally would rather not see current characters being discussed because it's going to lead to a lot of gossip, drama, and slapfights.
There's no penalties for not following this and I think everyone is intelligent enough to figure out where the general vicinity of the line is and also understand there's plenty of grey areas/wiggle room.
grumble: Triste is not a leftist. Triste is a right wing nutjob just like you.

grumble: But myself, I don't take issue with there being slaves in the game, references to slaves, or that certain races are preferred as slaves in the game. Look at the Sun Runners, it's considered an honor to be one of their slaves.

grumble: It's all part of the history of the game. Armageddon should come with a trigger warning, if it doesn't already.

grumble: Necker, however much I miss saying "Sup my necker?", was a bit much. I can do without it because I see the reason why it's a bad idea. I'm not sure too many were offended but one is enough.
