    About 2 1/2 years ago a member started a Blackberry Messenger Group for FTF users and we got a pretty good response.

    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?

    Doc, just PM me your phone number and I'll get you added.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
