Added DiffLines:

* AllMenArePerverts: Ohforf and Darkblade at least, although Ohforf draws the line at Cyborella's borderline aggressive way of coming on to him.


Added DiffLines:

** The Anti-[=PKs=] are generally this too, especially the roleplayers, who nine times out of ten get so immersed that they forget what they are ''really'' supposed to be doing.


Added DiffLines:

* ReallyGetsAround: Cyborella[=/=]Cathy is a very blatant example.


Added DiffLines:

** Darkblade steps into this role when [[http://thenoobcomic.com/comic/216/ Sir Bob returns]], threatening to call a GM on him just because he's killing trolls from a vantage point, while other people who are playing, as Darkblade puts it, "the way that it was meant to be played", are ganged upon and brutalized by the trolls. [[spoiler:Even after getting killed he maintains the attitude.]]
