I don't want to sound like a snob or a jerk. I'm not trying to be snippy, but at this point I'm just... confused. The source of my confusion is this: Why would you RP through short single lines of text on a forum? It just seems like a waste of the capabilities of the medium. If what you want is quick entries and rapid responses, why not do so over a chat? Surely there are chat services that offer private rooms to use or let users create rooms and groups. And if the RP is supposed to be private, then why not simply use IM services like MSN and Skype? I guess I just don't get why when you're on a forum, which gives you the space and time to type out long messages, you would be satisfied with only single lines at a time. Can someone try to explain this to me?
