This chicken has done nothing to deserve such a harsh burn.
I listened to a game once when the characters were whispering, and the players were whispering, too. This seemed to work fine for them at the table, but listening to the video of it, I had trouble hearing what they were saying.
When one of them said, in a perfectly audible way, to take it as given that she was whispering, and the rest followed her example, I was VERY appreciative.
I also imagine this could be troublesome just while playing without an audience, however, so I boldly assume this is valid Table Top RPG commentary.
