I have never used chat, been tempted several times, but wouldn't know where to start, rumour has it they shoot lurkers, see my dilema? what if I have
no clue what the discussions are about etc.
Anyhow, I think closing the chat room is very unfair on the members who use it for socialising and having a great talk live with this sites
magnificent membership, because of the few, everyone has to suffer, I don't see how that instils respect from the members on this site.
Once again the bad guys win, and the innocent have to live with more rules, isn't that what ATS is here for people to vent about? and now it is here
also, if you want the membership to deal with the trouble makers, then fine I'm all for that, at least tell us who we have to thank for the closure?
perhaps a naming and shaming policy should be included, then members who wish to can use the ignore button so they never bother their way of doing
things on this site.
It is obvious judging by the response in this Thread
That closing the chat room is not a popular decision, and that the majority feel they are being punished for something most of us had no clue about
until I received a U2U, I seriously didn't know this was happening, and I bet either did many many others? so why punish the innocent again?
Ban the offenders and move forward, don't let them win, they are probably sitting their off their heads under a new ID having a good laugh.
Don't let them win by punishing the people who every day prove their loyalty to this site, a site I may add that your patronage time and again come
here to stand and fight against in the real World.
