We also had problems with troublemakers that ran off a few members, so overall it just wasn't worth it. Though I'm glad we had it for a while, because that's how we found Ruth! Of course she was on her best behavior
I used to use the chat room here with someone who was a mod at the time (I don't think she's a mod anymore--4myself). Anyway, I could see back then that it wasn't used much. People would pop in and then pop out without saying anything. I think the threads are a much better way to communicate here!
