Maybe they're just always talking with their mouths full?
Well, I guess both pandas you quoted got Out Of Mana pretty fast...
There was never an established "Pandaren" language. Blizzard added it in as a joke. Unlike other race that actually have lore basis for their other languages, the Pandaren do not.
EDIT: I was wrong. I meant more that we don't see it used in the game and the one playable Pandaren have is just a joke.

There was a "Pandaren" language in the RPG, but that is non canon now. The only thing we have now was that small list of random phrases they showed us at Blizzcon 2011. Other than that, there's some vague statement by Lorewalker Amai about the "Old Tongue" and how its changed and unrecognizable to the newest generation of Pandaren.
I suppose I meant that there's no real use of the "Pandaren" language in any official capacity anywhere outside of a blurb by Lorewalker Amai in one quest.

I don't roleplay at all, but if that is really how the Pandaren talk, then that's just really unfunny and dumb. :/ It doesn't particularly bother me, but it's just kind of stupid.
Maybe you just don't understand the subtle undertones and inflections surrounding the word "om" and "nom" which do not translate at all into text.

I didn't know this - I actually find it pretty funny! Still, I understand how some people could find this annoying.
Though who actually uses languages in RP, though? Not trying to sound arrogant, but I don't see people using them on my RP characters.

I do apologise, you get used to all manner of wacko statements after a while on MMO-C. xD
(On the topic of the language being... what it is, I do find it silly, but of course it could simply be that the other races can't comprehend the tongue and hear it as such. Maybe they speak a dialect that's like really really hard to understand. And yes, it's quite a stretch.)
Wait... RP'ers actually take a break from cyber to complain about the speech? How the hell do you type when you've got the side of your face on the screen, one hand on your dick, and the other being used to hug the monitor? Yes, I just went there.
Honestly, for the simple fact that RPers come across as creepy stalker types, they should just 'deal with it' when it comes to language. Truthfully, I've never met an RP'er who hasn't creeped all hell out of me. I mean sure, I can outrun them (because walking is for winners apparently), but they're like Quantum - there's an army of them and they can fit in anywhere. Running away just means that eventually, I'm going to be verbally assaulted by a group of them again.
Infracted; this is in no way acceptable.

never saw a panda speak his/her language yet...
but one thing I have been wondering. Horde panda walks up to alliance panda and says "hi" in pandaren...what does alliance panda see?
Are there any numbers anywhere of actual Role Players numbers vs real community?
I'm surprised this made it into live. In beta I thought it was a placeholder joke. This should definitely be changed.
