I realize there has been threads on this topic before but I feel as if it needs to be brought up again. I do not see the point in limiting mic chat to ONLY discussion regarding the game. The reason why I play on this server on a consistent basis is because of the community. Many of you that play on the Zombie Escape server are familiar with Epyon and the discussions that occur due to this presence on the server are one of the reasons why I and others that I know of quite thoroughly enjoy. He recently came on today after a long absence and once again the normal discussions came up (politics). The conversation was not at all affecting any sort of teamwork that was needed for the map (Grand Boat) nor was anyone complaining about too much mic chatter, which in and of itself was limited. The admin proceeded to mute him anyway. Now I'm not crying abuse here, the admin was doing his job, my point is that the policy is decaying the quality of the community. Admins should not have to mute people for simply talking. I would like to see the rule changed and I am sure a lot of people would agree with me. I can understand the need to limit such chat during a map like Predator or Mako but at some point some common sense needs to be used and chat be allowed on a map such as Grand Boat (and the majority of maps on PF, IMO).
