Chatroom-Your Thoughts Please!
As you may have noticed, we've just implemented a much-requested chatroom. It is quite simple and has few fancy features, but for the moment we just want it to work!
Anyway, have at it, and post your thoughts, feature requests, effusive thanks to the tech team, etc., right here. Thanks!

until recentley i though you had to at least be a registerd member to have access to most of this site,, so ,,.i guise not,,... be careful what you say and who you speek to ,,,
I have a feeling this is a leftover fro the KPFA chat, but also I think it's worth letting it run a bit and see what happens. We can always turn it off later, I would guess.
I share cosmicbadger's concern for potential problems here, but have somewhat mixed emotions. We were always free to attempt to strike up random conversations in the lot or the show without identifying ourselves, and while the chatroom context is similar (to me,) it does lack the physical proximity/available security dimension of an in person encounter.
Perhaps a solution might be to require that a virtual token be delivered via email and re-presented to the site for anyone desiring to post in the chatroom anonymously. That would create some semblance of accountability at least. It's hard to imagine any possible problem caused by someone who merely wanted to eavesdrop, but not actively participate. It's not like there can be any assumption of privacy in what is effectively a public space.
Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
Is it OK to allow anonymous guests in the Chat Room? Not sure.
nice to see the chat room is back up running ..hope it lasts ,, I enjoy talking to other folks while listening to what i can ,,...
