I don't see how roleplaying is attractive to some people.Spending time with random addons to tell my character's story and what they look like is retarded when you see what others have. 98% of all the female character's are guys creating stories on where and what nipple rings they have and what piercings it's just sad. How can some person honestly get off on text? It seems that all RP'ers are cyberers which just make them more of a freak to people who don't understand. If Rp'ers were less about telling a story of their sexual preferences and life, i think they would be more respected. And if they made more plausable stories it would be more like telling a story rather than some random excuse on why they haven't been playing for a month all because they were captured by a tribe of taurens and the reason why they are purposely typing HORRIBLY is because they had to learn Orcish and now they have broken common.I do admit that many of my friends are roleplayers, it's just that I don't see the appeal to this freakish time waster. But then again people could critize how I spend countless hours PvPing. Some say it's mindless, repeatitive, twitch gaming, but i find it as a fun sport. Eh, I just felt like I needed to type this. Silly crazy Rp'ers and their hippy juice! xD

Open your face, jellyfish. Not all RPers are like that.Some of us are guys RPing girls, some of us are even girls RPing guys, but that isn't automatically a bad thing. Yes, some people think they're cool RPing a female character who's effectively a slut, but don't let the bad 3% give the other 97% of us a bad name.RPing is about playing the game like your character would actually live it. My draenei priest was an Elekk handler before the Exodar crashed, for example, and I even own a pair of Blue Overalls ( http://www.wowhead.com/?item=6263#comments ) to RP that out in. Her Elekk mount plays a part in RP as well, and even has a name.The very essence of RP is immersing yourself in the game, adding an extra touch of realism where you can get it to make the game more fun. Are there people who give us a bad name? Yes. Ignore those people; the rest of us are generally quite a fun and friendly bunch.

Sorry, but the examples you cited in your post do not, in any way, shape, or form, represent the entirety of the RP community.There are 'Roleplayers,' and there are 'Sick Bastards.'

One of the most recent additions to a roleplaying guild I'm in is a former wine salesman, driven out of business by those bastards in Stormwind who seem to have money to give free samples to anyone who comes into the city!Personally, I think it's brilliant.Roleplayers are, above nearly all else, a diverse bunch. Don't lump us all in together.
