Maybe I missed that one, but I think this is a great thread (nice one April).
On occasion, especially if it's a member who I enjoy watching, I will rail. But what I have seen happen is that the chat between members dominates the chatbox. I am just as guilty as any other person, and have even been put in my place (thanks, shine). It can be distracting and have negative consequences on that members game (added pressure maybe?).
Most of the rail calls, however, have been asked for. If that's the case then the resulting melee is fine as long as we don't insult anyone and handle ourselves with the appropriate discretion.
And I, like April, have searched certain members to watch their play... but I seldom rail unless A) I know them well or B) they asked for a rail.
Personally, I will probably never call for a rail (wouldn't want to bore anyone) but if someone searched me and started to rail I would be flattered. And there lies the point of my meandering post... those that rail are just trying to show support and love for their fellow CC members - and not all members get that support.
