Since my previous post generated a laugh, here is an actual transcript of the singles chat from 7/15/2000:

Andrew.. test 1

Andrew.. A stitch in time saves nine.

Andrew.. rest 2

Andrew.. Once burned, twice shy.

Andrew.. test 3

Andrew.. A rising tide raises all boats.

This is the unedited, complete transcript from 5/29/1999:

Andrew.. Once again, I am pleased to say that we had no disagreements or unseemly quarrels this week.

Andrew.. I commend the civil behavior of the participants in this conference, and with that, declare the proceedings adjorned until Thursday night at 10 PM.

Andrew.. Adjourned, that is.

Finally, here is the original, unredacted chat transcript from 7/15/1999:

Andrew.. I've warned everyone once about the crowding. Now, please, enter one at a time, like ladies and gentlemen. Thank you.

Andrew.. Well, folks, I'm going to have to cut you off at this point.

Andrew.. The chat is scheduled to end at 11 PM, and I'm going to end it even if I have to fight you all. Now, be quiet for a few minutes.

Andrew.. Thanks. See you all next week. Take care. Quo adporinum.

Oddly enough, I don't even remember what "quo adporinum" means, even though the transcript indicates that I wrote it-- but that's why we save official transcripts.

I have never tried any of the chat rooms. I will stop in sometime and say hello.

Gigi,

I tried the chat room for the first time yesterday and could only stand it for a few minutes. It was like being in a room with five conversations all on different topics at the same time. For me it was like trying to drink from a fire hose! I could feel my anxiety building after just a few minutes and bailed out. I will probably never go back to chat.

That is just the $0.02 of one 53 year old.

AGREED! The first chat I ever tried to join on CM (actually, my first chat on any site, ever) was crowded with 21 users and several conversations happening, one of which was about french kissing and fooling around. I stated that "I'm new" and "is this really appropriate conversation?" and "I don't need this - I'm outta here." Then I went to the smaller room and it was much better with some good stuff said. I'm a pretty fast typist, but I can only go on Saturday nights - kids are at their dad's.

Totally agree, Jerry!! I went on once & felt a similar sensation...like watching five tennis matches at once!!

Well thanks, for your input. I have found it to be a great place to meet people. Once you go a few times, you meet people and it is like talking to old friends. It can be a little quick, but you are able to slow down the conversation with just one click. I was just wondering since so many of the chat room people are over 55 and under 40 years of age, why our age group isn't better represented.

I think that is the best description of the chat room, at least from my review. Didn't have the courage to type a word in edgewise.
