No idea why it’s called “smack” talk but we all know what I mean here. Basically it boils down to gobbing off when you should be shooting instead.
I really really don’t see the point, you have just lost a ship so why does this mean you have to threaten me in local chat, demonstrably you are incapable of carrying out any threats as you are in a pod. I have to say that bears are the worst offenders here, pirates will usually have a decent chat afterwards and share fits but I have had some pretty offensive stuff from miners and missioners. I think the reason is that these guys aren’t as used to loosing ships as we are and get a bit too attached to them.
The funny thing is that if you are polite in local, most of us would offer you a bit of post-explosion advice on how to avoid being another statistic on the Tuskers killboard.
