    You can't really throw a blanket statement like that around so willingly.

    Actually, it's more a case of all regulars who are often found on it, and build a reputation and persona that other regulars become acustom too, need to think about what they are dicussing between each other from an outsider persepective.

    As with most clubs/classrooms/regular meetups. (Human nature in general) New people to established organisations tend to first introduce themselves. And then build a databank of what the others do and do not like to be called, talked to about, and their personal interests and strengths that can spark conversation. However anyone new comming along and joining in after the main group has become knowledged about each other cannot catch up to the same status in a matter of minutes. As a result will often take on how others are acting/saying and absorb the information from different sources. Whether it be right or wrong information a clouded view is made. That's just how people work.

    In a chatroom situation such as thus, this often materialises in basic banter or 'inside joke' references/welcomes/friendly tounge-in-cheek comments between regular users being taken as 'the norm' and OK to to be said even comming from someone relativley new or unknown. End result, perceived 'my friend only' actions are taken on by other people and not seen in the same light or as an annoyance/abusive.

    I'm often sitting there, just watching. If there is nothing of interest being said, or anything I have valuable to contribute - I don't
    Yet, I see others giving each other a snide remark here and there, or inside joke digs. Damn near personal attacks.

    Mix this with people who do not natively speak english every day, or have a strong grasp on common english comedy/quips and phrases, you have a molotov cocktail for disaster.

    If I was a new user, visiting for the first time for some real-life person assistance on clearing filters for instance, comming in mid-conversation and saw some of the comments made by regular users about certain airlines, or other users talking to each other (with only them) knowing what they are saying will be taken lightly, I would probably be shocked and potentially disgusted.

    Something to mull over. You may know other people, and be fine with the way you talk to each other. But onlookers who may not know everyone else won't see written text in the same light or tone.

    I must once again stress, Chat is a self-regulated medium. People on it are responsible for their own actions. The rest of us are there to keep an eye on things and attempt to keep the peace and help people who are after legitimate information or assistance.

    Well written Oblivian ['Like' button pressed]

    It's tough, I think we need PMs (possibly with conversations only being initiated by people with a minimum posts count to defeat spammers), to give admins the ability to message individual users and for established users to take 'private' chats to skype, facebook, etc. without having to reveal private contact info to the world.

    Seriously? I came back on after my ban, all normal and then get banned:
    You have been banned!
    Your limit of Banns have been attained,. Your membership is being considered by Administration.

    If you're going to ban me, at least spell bans right! Delcomp needs to go, otherwise te chat is going to lose a lot of members...
