Why can't anyone use chat? Me and my friend would like to but he need another 150 posts to. Wouldn't it just be so much simpler? Someone back me up

Due to certain people abusing the chat feature on ATS in the past, they opted to make it a paid feature. I'd actualy not mind if they cranked it up to 5 or 10K points so that only those people that actualy interact with the boards can use it.

I agree with the 200 post limit, due to the fact it makes sure that its only the slightly longer term members that are able to enter.

If there wasn't a limit any old troll, spammer etc could go in a ruin chat.

eh suppose you're right but maybe it should be on request like you U2U ADVISOR for permission to use it and if you screw up your out. I mean spammers will just post on the boards, heres an example:

So UK WIZARD, hows that progress report coming along?

EXACTLY! That's happened in the past. Chat is an "added value feature"[i/] that we offer to legitmate members who are here for the community NOT those who are here to take from the community or disrupt it.

The Chat feature is a little “thank you” from the owner and admin to contributing ATS members. The bar is set at 200 posts…really this is fairly low and allows everyone to get there within 2 days of joining the site if they wish. Your friend only needs 150 more posts…you’ll be chatting in no time if he/she remains an active member.

Atomix, here's a couple of threads that detail the reasons behind the 200 post limit for chat. I hope this helps:
