I've been asking a series of questions about chat because, even though I've been there a few times, it takes some getting used to and I'm just trying to clarify things.
So what's up with behavior and etiquette?
Recently it seems like in a number of chatrooms (including ELU) there was a bit of drama, people being flagged and suspended and yelled at and rage-quitting (I know, I know what I've said about UD).
I'd like to have fun in chat, but I also don't want to piss anybody off. Chat is just typing, and so if it's hard to tell someone's emotions in real life it's that much harder through typing (and, no, emoji's are not helping).
So what are the rules (or rather I hope just recommendations) of etiquette here? Martha touched on it. I'm sure that they all stem from 'Be Nice, Don't be a jerk' but I guess I need more guidance.
