It's the same stupid types of people making braindead threads on the board too. Membership is not what it once was. I think chat should require more than 200 posts actually. Make it 500, or a thousand. Make these ass clowns earn their stripes for real. If they don't like it... If making a decent contribution first is too much for them.. tough! They are probably the type of people we DON'T want in there in the first place.
The issue is two-fold.
Yes, there has been a rash of immature un-ATS behavior in chat lately, which is part of the reason.
A more significant part is the identification of at least two security "holes" in the chat solution we're using. I'm currently investigating alternatives.
