Yet another example, this time from the mush/mux/muse/muck community, 
that some people treat the term MUD as exclusive of those ideas.  Fascinating.
I've heard plenty from the MUD world who think of this barrier as present
(mush/mux/muse/muck people aren't mudding).

Never thought it worked that way meself, thinking that the term was
rather inclusive.  But then I've tried to use ORPG this way (before the
term MMORPG was coined).  Then non roleplaying types somehow insist
they aren't included by the term!  can't win I guess.
