text info in game

A little while back, game info text started appearing in game. Am I the only one who finds it annoying and intrusive? Can we turn it off again? :)

We turned it on because a lot of our players don't bother going to the forum to read the rules and it's an easy way for us to reach them all.

I keep getting these sexting messages and illicit offers in the middle of the screen from time to time. Is it a bug?

If we have to have them, can we change them to be more informative and less annoying? For example, can we delete those that say press key... for such and such? Most people have customised their keys, so such comments are pointless. Then there's the one about cheating. Can we change that to "Cheating will not be tolerated on this server"? The current comment gives the impression some omniscient admin will somehow prevent cheating from happening. :D

Personally I find that after you’ve seen the for a while selective attention kicks in and your barely notice them, even that link for the naked Trump pix.

I have deleted the "Press t to chat" one. I don't see the problem with the sentence "Cheating is not allowed here."
