Hehe, RPing is fun, but only is people really know what you're RPing about. If people started randomly introducing alternate universes or abusing the characters, then it's well due to smack someone upside the head with the Necronomicon.
Better to loose someone in Time and Space, than suffer with their ignorance in what was supposed to be a break from reality.
But yes, posting at random places, or just hanging out in threads without hunkering down with some serious role playing can be very satisfying.
I just... procrastinated for 5 years with my posting. rofl
