I'm not going to read all the other comments attached to this, but I'll reply to your original posting. There are times when I lose track of what is going on in guild chat, but if I see someone saying something flagrantly offensive, I'll say something to them (even though I haven't been in the guild long). Racism, homophobia, and sexism are unacceptable. In the US military, we have had to take a hardcore approach to people using the term "gay" to describe something in a less than pleasant light, and it seems to be a big thing with people ages 13-27 or so. I have many friends who are homosexual, and even though I was raised differently (from the rural south), I have come to realize that those ways are unsat. Especially since I have two little girls of my own, and I realize that if the many, many parents out there don't pull their heads out of their collective butts - their kids will continue the trend.
