Wow, I cannot believe that you recommended Pocket D in City of Heroes as a haven for roleplaying. As someone who plays on the semi-official roleplaying server, I've learned to avoid Pocket D like a disease-infested garbage dump.

I pass through Pocket D from time to time, to use the costume tailor there or to use its gateways to shortcut from one part of the game world to another. And except for the first two weeks or so of the twice-annual seasonal events, I don't think I've ever run through there without running into the two banes of roleplaying: cybersex pickups in broadcast chat, and people in local chat reciting their character bios as if anybody there cared. I can count all of the actual in-character *conversations* I've heard there, in five and a half years, that weren't about having sex or wanting to have sex, on the thumbs of one hand.

I've been hanging around in the D for a long time and have never once seen a Broadcast cybersex solicitation (tells, maybe once. Broadcast, never). I have seen plenty of polite RP newbies looking for people to RP with.

The D's bad reputation is greatly exaggerated, mostly by people who try to make themselves feel better about pretending to be superheroes by going "at least I'm not like those freaks who pretend to be superheroes doing it with one another".
