Ok, first, I do not mean role play as in the art of writing, but what the players do that turn you off. For me, the answer is a bit complicated; especially for those whom have not role played on a chat site. The single biggest pet peeve I have is when people are constantly out of character. To clarify, in the chat sites I have been to, you create one character and role play him or her out in the room, blogs, or forums. Yet more often then not, the majority of individuals remain out of character instead of role playing .......And that, America, is what grinds my gears.
