I joined VMK a year in and the taken thing was huge. Everyone had it in their sig. And there were so many rooms dedicated to being taken or finding someone. That didn't bother me since my BF and i played together and would just write "taken" for the heck of it. And its since been banned too. The thing that bothered me more were the bay bee daycare rooms and people calling others mummy and what not. That was so annoying and i believe that was banned as well.
