Default FTF Mobile Chat

About 2 1/2 years ago a member started a Blackberry Messenger Group for FTF users and we got a pretty good response.
http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f12/blackberry-users-30324/
Since the decline of RIM the group has switched to the Whatsapp Messaging App which, frankly, is much better.
The group is still going strong and a great way to make sure you aren't too productive at work! If anyone is interested in checking it out, let me know and we'll get you added to the conversation!

I want it clear that this has no official affiliation with the site, and is a group started and ran by members, not myself.

I don't think that's what he was getting at. IIRC, the mobile chat ended up being part of a very big problem. Some of the older members know more about it than I do, but from what I've heard, we do NOT want to go down that road again.

Now, if we can avoid that road, the mobile chat sounds like a great idea.

If that's the case then I missed something entirely. I've been a chat member since day 1 and I had no idea there was any friction.
What happened?

Long story short, a few different cliques were formed, it became member vs member, and there was a falling out. The chat didn't cause this, but it ended up being part of it.

I never saw any of this first hand (I join either towards the end of this, or after it), but I was told this by a few people who did see it.

That's possible. I don't know what chat group it was. I just know it was a chat group that several members here used.
