The question is should these be allowed in games? Recently it was used in a newbie and people had no idea what was going on.
My personal feelings are they shouldnt be in newbies, but are ok in normal games. We kinda went over it in the Newbie podcast tonight and I wanted to bring it up here.
Some arguments are if it gets too popular then it is just a hassle to need to quote every post. I think depending on the post it is only more likely that town quotes it over scum and is a good way to hide claims.
