There are only a couple of players who regularly derail entire conversations with their ramblings.

It's, overall, a decent channel where systems, game direction, missions & mechanics are generally discussed by a fairly decent sized pool of players that are both knowledgeable and mostly rational.

It's also one of the few channels that manage to sit in between being a borderline spam generator with a terrible signal to noise ratio and the other end of the channel spectrum ruled by draconian fascism with laws like "No one is allowed to communicate in this channel except for this singular and very specific phrase you are allowed to say because we here in this channel are unable to process more than 4 words in any given 10s time span, Sincerely, your Robot Overlords."

Actually I'd say DS9 chat is the hive of scum and villainy in STO. Akin to the Barrens Chat of WoW or Coruscant in TOR post-f2p.

That being said, I think the "why" part of design philosophy when it comes to captain/career, new systems, ship roles, ground class roles, etc would be of interest to the playerbase.

I'm also fairly confident the playerbase could understand that.

TTS is no where near 4chan.

DS9, at least it used to be, was close. So is most Zone chat.

I turned zone chat off within the first 5 minutes of playing STO.
