The irony is ....

a) the room was closed because of repeated threats from Wikivorce chat users to sue Wiki over incidents arising out of chat. :(

b) I made the decision to shut it as its a thankless task providing a free service to people who then threaten to sue you. :dry:

c) The person who argued most strongly to keep the room open was - you guessed it, "the blood sucking lawyer". ;)

Hi All,

Just thought I'd highlight the fact that I speak my mind and have argued with people and disagreed with a moderator but have never felt hated by anyone.

Perhaps I am a bit simple and can't believe that anyone would wish to waste their time hating me, who knows?

I too am sorry to see the loss of chat but Wiki is still a fantastic resource even without it - it is just that it isn't so funny anymore.

Ah well . . .

Kind regards to All!

I cant dance but i have real fun trying lol and i am sure everyone has a real laugh watching me try but hey If that brings joy then i m happy lol .
I miss Wiki Chat and msn and facebook just dont cut it for me not the same not by a long way .
I cant even get Msn to work on my comp dont know why it never has so that i cant do .
Is there no way that wiki chat could be brought back with like you a disclaimer so people cant sue Oh i dont know my be its a silly question xxx
All I know is the first time i logged into chat was early hours of the morning i had joined wiki long before that but only read posts didt really have the nerve to go into chat .
But this one day i was so down and that night too i needed to talk to someone that really would understand and i knew the place to go was the chat room lucky for me there was three or four people in there and two stayed up with me till a least 5am a lot changed for me that night .
I then used the chat more and more i started blogging i was encouraged inspired carried at times.
The support i had was fantastic I have come a long way since that night and it was because of the wiki members mods and the wiki team you all know who you are that I am as strong as i am they made me see that i was not alone and i could do this .
The times i have been hugged and listened to given advice i could never of coped as well as i didt if it was not for these people here.
I had friends but they didt really understand who can blame them they did there best but to know is to experience it until then nobody really knows what its like but people here do and on so many different levels .
It wast just the ladies the men here too were so supportive.
I have made many friends met many different people and its really has been good for me.
Its such a shame the chat has gone I still need that life line but for myself and many its gone from us .
I do not blame wiki at all I think every one here is fantastic but it would be nice to see chat back if there was a way .
I miss you all so much

Thank you every one for all the support you have given me the hugs and friendship you have shown you all truely gave unconditional
Friendship help inspiration and advice I cant count the times that you have carried me when i just felt i couldt do this any more you picked me up when i fell you listen when i felt no one was .You gave me hope when i felt there was none .
For that I will be always so grateful and I will always remember.
Dido xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

How about bringing back the chattroom ,with the proviso that any nasty comments will result in an instant life ban ?
I am sure that the mods have access to transcripts , so if someone posts something nasty , after a few drinks ,they can be banned as soon as a mod is notified .
Also , the IP adress can be noted ,so they will not be able to join under another name .
I miss wikichat , I miss the non-divorce small talk :(
