The Politeness Problem

This has come up twice at a LARP, and I'm not quite sure what to do. See, I enjoy chit-chatting about WW, and characters, and all of the worldview, etc., etc., but there comes a point where I'm simply not interested in hearing about how tweaked out their character is, or how badly my (or any other) character will die through the slightest twich of their character's finger, or even WW rules esoterica.

How do you politely say, "Excuse me, but your rampant twinkdom/proof that you know all of the is boring me. Talk about something else or leave."
