    I have seen many forum sites with a chat feature. I have found this chat additions very fun! You get to know people more "on the cuff" then just in threads.

    What do the rest of you think about this idea?

    There would also be numerous comments that would violate the rules and I do not see how the moderators could effectively do their (voluntary) jobs.

    Chat rooms are soooooo 1990's. :D

    I remember when they actually worked. Now they're just full of spam-bots and post-whores.

    I like the forum format.

    Funny, the chats where I have joined have been intelligent conversations. And i understand about the violating rules of the forum.

    The likelihood of spam bots on a forum chat couldnt be that high, could they?

    Looks like another great idea ruined by trolls. Damn trolls.

    The last thing the modern MacRumors needs now is everyone asking each other "ASL?" all the time.

    However, that said, certain discussions are pretty much reaching that level already... :rolleyes:

    umm

    if this ever happens

    i bet this will be the new

    find truth love .com

    people will be putting fake names, and fake pictures of themselves and this website will become a dating website.

    (what's the name of the dating website? truth harmony something?) :D
