Well, the subject of roleplaying in online RPGs has cropped up again (over in the CDF), so I'm a bit curious as to the opinions of other peeps here concerning RP.
I myself, RP a lot on City of Heroes/Villains, and I personally find it quite fun to RP my Magic Scrapper as a former street-fighter with maniacal tendencies and several spells up his sleeve, or his musician sister. Or even his mum.
However, some people either don't seem to 'get' RP and/or just plain have some unexplained vendetta against RPers, namely the nutjobs that hurl abuse and brand all RPers over-30s with no lives.
Sooo... what's your opinion on roleplaying? Be nice now.
