This is so you can't share "Personally Identifiable Information" over our game (think phone number, address, age, and other things another person could use to identify or contact you outside of our game, which would be very very bad).

***Our Terms of Use for in-game communication with other players will remain the same regardless of the type of chat you have. Violent and abusive behavior, as well as the use of inappropriate language and exchange of personal information is not acceptable***
