Exactly. I don't know why people assume just because you're not openly hating elves or breeds or whatever, you must not be engaging in racial play. The entire aspect of subtle racism is often missed out on, on Arm and that bothers me, because so many people miss it and staff of all people shouldn't especially since it opens up all kinds of RP opportunities. Just because you're being "nice" doesn't mean you're being nice, most of the time it's far worse. *shrug* But that's just me. He made a rant about that on the GDB and I just had to shake my head.

It's not just nyr with the racial stuff. I have had approximately 2 pcs be somewhat friendly to 2 elves in 5 years. The first pc, Cumani, was exploiting an elf that was "honest" to more or less do as much work for her as possible for no real pay. The second one, Nat (Ilanit) was nice to that elf because that elf was supposedly in the process of working for her girlfriend (and was actually testing her, by letting it out that she was a magicker, seeing as she intended to get gemmed anyhow, and was in the process of trying to find a templar to do it). I don't get how anyone can get along with elves unless they're under the elves' "protection" or under their thumb, as that's the only time I've not gotten a negative account note for actual interaction with elven pcs, and I'm inclined to believe that it was (frankly) because I was on staff at the time.
