I have to disagree. Someone's life, the good and the bad, is not something that one can really segregate. You can have friends at work for instance, but if they know nothing of your life outside of work, then the friendship is lacks a lot of depth. It doesn't matter if your work friends would care about your problems or not; if you make yourself a rule that you cannot share your life outside of work with them, then that stifles the growth of the relationship.If a guild is pure immersion, then you can't share the happy moments with them, such as getting married or having a child. You can't share, as I mentioned before, the bad times either. Your entire experience with them is inside WoW, and while that can be fun and entertaining, it is quite lacking as far as friendships go. True and deep friendships have to go beyond just one aspect of your life, however much fun you derive from that aspect.Honestly, for these reasons, and for the more critical aspects of life that can take you away from the game (emergencies, vacations, etc), I think any roleplaying guild has to have some mechanism to talk out of character.
