In my opinion, You must overlook these types of distractions (and much worse). If you plan on improving your game.
Point well taken, WEC. I think my favorite chat term has to be "zzzzzzzzzz," which usually results in all of the players taking as much time as possible before acting in order to piss the poster off. If I want to slow the game down for any reason, "zzzzzzz" will usually do the trick!
Luckily, both types of chatters usually disappear as the tourneys go on, so they aren't much of a nuisance once it's time to concentrate fully on the game at hand.
