Come into the chat room, have a look, then leave without uttering so much as a word, after we said hello to you.You can see who is in there at the bottom of the main page, so why come in and look if you have no intention of talking to anyone? It's frustrating to those who would like to strike up a conversation and get to know you better, see waht makes you tick. It must be like the light in the fridge, ya gotta try and see if it really goes out. Yea, we really are in there, waiting to meet you and have a good time. Don't be shy, speak up and enjoy the fellowship of convcersation. looking forward to meeting some of you.

My experience there is that often it's a new member just getting the feel for where things are. Also, Many sites with a chatroom have a non integrated chat, so they may be expecting another login screen.

Another thing that's happened to me is if someone doesn't say anything for a long time, it may be their browser settings opened the chat as a popup that ends up hidden behind their main window.

I have only visited the chat once or twice on here. There were 6 or 7 on and I was simply lost in the shuffle, you guys are way more technically savvy than me. It made me feel "really old" So I just follow along on the posts as time permits, so if I was rude I apologize, wasn't my intent.

I don't peck fast enough to get a reply in a timely manner. Don't use the 'short' lingo either.

I have only been there twice. The first time there were quite a few people. The second time I tried with my phone and it would not work. I could open it but it would just force close my browser app. I just read the posts normally.

I agree...sometimes there is 2 or 3 conversations going on and I can't keep up with one!
Oh, and the LOL, IMHO and crap just doesn't cut it with me either. I have used a couple of them, but not very often for fear of using the wrong acronym.....LOL used to be Lots Of Love when I was young, and the game they call "Corn Hole".......I don't even want to start on that one!
