I keep hearing this, and yet the fact of the matter is that it IS VERY difficult. Ok, I guess it's not hard ot skip over the snap comment, but the problem lies with REAL comments interspersed with the snap comments. Perhaps it is my shade blindness (though I wouldn't think so), but I do have a very difficult time picking out the text between these snaps. I have missed several occasions of teammate text already in a short game.

I do not normally play team games, but am in a tournament where this is required.

At any rate, it seems as though there should be a very simple way for this text NOT to show up in the game chat when it is not an actual link being displayed (as with non-BOB-users).

But hey...tough shit on my part, amirite? After all, expecting good customer service combined with a bit of effort is apparently being rude.
All hail the tech team! Wouldn't want them to get off their ass or anything, when it's much easier to be an asshole.

There is a way for this text (which by the way is not clutter, it is the actual snapshot data) not to show up in game chat. Have your teammates use the other type of snapshot. However, those snapshots are stored on each individual's computer and not easily shared, a problem made worse if a player uses more than one computer. The game chat is used because it is a common storage area accessible to all team members.
If your teammates insist on using snapshots in chat, ask them to put some extra chat lines around them or around the real chat so that it is easier for you to pick those lines out.
