Players who insist on spamming public channels may be noshouted -- ie, temporarily lose the privilege of speaking on public channels at all.  Please limit your use of public channels to 3 instances in a row so that you don't scroll other players.  Debates are allowed on gossip, but if your argument drags on and you're asked to take it to tell (even by other mortals), please be considerate and do so.  Harassment or rampant flaming on public channels can result in a noshout.
