That's not the issue. Chat rooms have been constant issues and breeding grounds for discontent with other members.

Now, if we can avoid that road, the mobile chat sounds like a great idea.
No we don't. It took some time for everything to get back to a positive attitude and I don't want a return to that.

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.
You nailed, they then used to the forum to launch attacks on one another, but those days are gone and those members have thankfully moved on. There was a time when the mods and I where dealing with supporting member issues multiple times a day based on chat room interactions we could not moderate.

I'm pretty certain that wasn't our chat. I think maybe you're thinking of the IRC chat.
Ours, like Buckhuntr said, has always just been a handful of us BSing about our days and sending each other pics.

I'm certain it wasn't, which is why this thread remains. I would have happily quickly removed the other chats had they been coming back up, it was that bad. As a consequence I do not want any chats affiliated with the site, and made that point known in my post.
