I don't know how good of an idea this is but a Roleplay tag that causes the tagged player's text in the Around channel a different color could also be a thing, maybe? We could use a Roleplay tag anyway.
The RP community and the non-RP community can peacefully live alongside each other. But it would take effort from both sides of the conflict. Right now I'm seeing a lot of "Your fun is wrong and our way of playing the game is the only right way", which is getting quite annoying.
I really like the idea of a different color for roleplay in Around. I think it would solve the whole thing. Use a flag of /sr and the color in Around changes. Voila.
