Does this group ever have a scheduled chat? Or do you just take your chances. I tried the chat room for the first time last week. I am not a very fast typist so the conversation tends to get away from me. I did not recognize any names and was about to leave when they started making fun of my name. Is it real? What does it mean? Did you make it up? Snicker. Snicker. Before I could lay any snappy comebacks on them the board went blank. *&*@ etc...

We should all gang up on them and commandeer the room. Spongebob can drive them off with a dose of salty language and be our Mc. Andreae will be in charge of entertainment--maybe a Cirque du Soleil thing with lots of contortionists. Emily would cater, of course. Wheatgrass canapes and soy milk snifters. I know Monika has a crystal punch bowl somewhere. Nanuk can stick to soda water because he is the designated driver. Everybody else is invited and we can all make fun of Kanga's accent.

I don't know about nanuk being the designated driver -

1. He's one of those Alaska drivers I have already discussed.

2. I don't know about running around in an RV with a machine gun turret!

3. Maybe we can all pile on Kanga's motorbike?

Aspaysia, some folks just ain't edjumukayted enuff fer ta git cher nayme. Don't pay them no nevermind.

Aspaysia,
I am sorry you had such a hard time in the chat room. Due to the ads that have been running there are a lot of new people who don't seem to understand whats going on, I have been going in the chat for quite a while and last night I had a major problem with someone. What you need to do is email jose at csn and tell him what happened they do want to know what is going on so that they can get rid of those type of people. CSNCommunity.Specialist@cancer.org please do this as I said this is the only way they can know.
What a lot of the old timer chat people do is go on aim there you will find very understanding and good people when I had my problem last night I was very upset and they were very supportive for me. Don't let a bunch of idiots ruin it for you. There are some very nice people who still go in chat. When it gets that crowded it is very hard to follow and I don't type very fast either. lol

Hi A,
In the last few months I've tried the chat room a few times, none recently. I find it hard to keep up, there are so many people whose stories I didn't know, and it felt hard to break in, even as a fairly fast typist! So, I find this message board much more meaningful for me, although not as immediate in getting feedback and replies. I've come to prefer posting and some e-mailing; it feels like communicating with friends instead of taking a chance on connecting with someone on the chat. I also find it hard to find the chunk of time to sit in the chat room, and tended to leave pretty quickly, but the people I chatted with were all very nice. Sorry for your bad experience; hope it works out better if yu try again. Judy

I am laughing so haed I find it hard totype........lololololololololol infinity

Then I read kangas and the laughter starts all o ver again. Oh thank you thank you. my sides hurt.

About the chatroom: there have been some unsavory types on lately I noticed too. Sorry to hear you have problems last night pattie. We must have just missed eachother. It has become a very hoppin place and crowded. With the new ones comes a different dynamic. A little jostling for position or something....or folks with no manners. It actually can be a great place to share and connect, but I agree with judith, I have come to prefer our own little joint right here tho it isn't chatting. Used to be I spent more time in chat and less here but you may have noticed that I spend more time in here andless there now. I have been coming to these boards for over a year and half (maybe closer to 2) and have come to rely on all of you to be here. I need you guys. Man, I love you like a brother...now gimmee your Bud...I mean beer SB.

Kanga...you are still getting the boot and I know it's not cuz you're from OZ. Keep trying and do email Jose with problems. They do listen...even if they dono't want to start an Alternative Medicine board.....lol.

So count me in Roman Goddess and I will bring the soymilk snifters (which SB will spike no doubt).

peace, emily who is still laughing
