Nearby characters needs to be same range as area talk

Meaning a display of everyone in the area. Bots are taking advantage of the bigger space in order to escape reporting.

Nah, the talk range needs to be change back into actual talk range so bots can't exploit it and i don't need to listen to the inane ramblings of randoms. Better yet, just let me turn off chat.

That is exactly what I mentioned in one of the many threads about killing the scambots, its a real pain to have to hunt those things down to report spam them, I also block each one of their SAs after reporting them to reduce the clutter in my SA history (This also lets me see returning bots, since their SA comes up blank).
