What is chat room disruption?

Chat Room Disruption, as defined by the Conditions of Service and Community Guidelines, is interference with the normal flow of dialogue in a chat room. Room disruption may occur by repeatedly interrupting conversation between members, such as repetitively playing sounds or repeatedly rolling dice.

Scrolling, (the rapid, repeated typing of a line into a public chat room which causes everyone's screen to scroll too fast for other conversations to be read) is also considered Room Disruption because it is both unnecessary and irritating to other members of the room.

Room Disruption may also occur by acting in such a way as to antagonise, harass or create hostility in a chat room.
