It seems like everybody is over concerned with "gossiping". Like, the mention of someone's name on a topic in which they are not present is considered gossip if it's not a tag. Like, I feel like people find this to be gossip:
Forumer 1: What's up forumer 2
Forumer 2: What's up? Did you hear forumer three got banned?
Forumer 4: please stop gossiping!
