I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I am so sick of avatars parked in the sim with their RP tags on and not roleplaying. Sometimes I have my character approach them to start a scene, and I don't hear back for 10+ minutes, so I send them an IM and ask if they're AFK. They respond with BS like, "Oh, I got a phone call." So why wasn't the OOC tag on? Why are you even logged into SL?
Sometimes I'll send an OOC message to the avatar(s) the nearby chat like this:
((Is someone writing?))
And they'll stand in silence for several minutes before walking away without a word. It's not like they gain points for just parking their avatar in the sim. So why do they even bother showing up? It's very misleading because when you see the traffic you think there's plenty of folks ready to roleplay today, but no. Just a bunch of silent avatars hanging around while their "players" talk on the phone or make a sandwich in RL.
Okay, that wasn't short and sweet, but I needed to get that out.
