True and it should definately die.  I've treid to say multiple tiems that I
think ther is DEFIANTELY a place for gamer oriented play, its is just my
fervent belief based on expereicne that strongly game-oriented players and
strongly roleplay-oriented players don't ten to mix.

The PvP issue brings it to a head, but the incompatability si more
fundemental and basic.  

I apoloigze for any noise about the "immature PKillers" offending anyone.
By my defintiions (and probably not anyone elses) Pkilling IS immature and
counetr productive.. as oppsoed to PvP where both parties WANT to be
playing a PvP game.

I doubt anyone on this list is a "PKiller" by my definition.
