And to be honest, I find the above less of a problem than people
doing this: "whois blue" "Oh look, Lori has alot of whois flags!"
"Tellspam Lori asking dumb questions."
You've been spoiled by the whois command bug(yep, bug, how 'bout that?),
now you get to figure out away around it.

I'd think you'd find out who people were the same way people found out
who people were before whois went in. Ask around.
Whois was never intended as a long distance "uncover this person's
identity command. It was and should only be a way to see the achievements
People had fits when the ability to whois mobs was removed. They lived.
They lived with descriptions before whois, and likely will now as well.

never mind - I was going to write a post arguing
against this new imposition from above, but you
cant argue with 'It was like that before, so it
should be now' attitudes from old players/immorts.
You'll just be ignored, because you don't count
unless you're one of them.

actually, people would often find out by using the tell command
e.g. 'tell wicked ____"

Yeah, but back then you were also able to send tells to descs, which
can't be done anymore. And Lori, people don't need your desc to whois
you and harass you for help on the quests you've done, thats what the
who list is for ;)

Well, yeah, still get pestered by the who list, but if you have your
desc on and are standing in an inn, they can't 'whois lass' or
'whois blue' to bug anymore.
And personally, I never sent tells to descs to see who was who, so I
don't miss that either. :P Nor do I miss the Soandso tells you, 'test'
that I often got because of it.

I personally think that who and tells should be removed
Now wouldnt that make playing here more real , oh and perhaps
do away with chat too :)
Just an idea.
