I don't like chat rooms, just because I feel I have to respond quickly and that makes me nervous. This is also why I don't like shooter games because things happen quickly. I like to think everything through.

I refuse to use a chatroom. I had bad experiences in the past...one involved opening a link which ruined my old computer from like five years back. Another involved opening a link containing a disgusting, perverse image. I never used one since the latter incident.

Well at least now you're considered a "jaded internet user."

As for me, I didn't even know this site had a chatroom. I just realized the Chat button is right next to the Forums button. I feel like some kind of dumb ass.

I can't chat with more than 2 people at once, and preferably, just 1.

It's the only chat room I've been able to use (so far.)

Sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's like, huh?!

Not me. Can't carry on conversations with more than one person.

I was hoping to see some responses here from people who do use it and how they like it. I'm curious how they handle the conversation flow, etc.

I use and like chatrooms , It's like a bridge between posting and real life chat. In a chat room i can easily leave when i want to and people won't think I'm rude because there are many people in the chat room so your not abandoning someone . I can't follow all the conversations so I watch for a bit and only join if someone is talking about something i'm interested in and then I just try to follow that conversation and ignore what else is going on unles someone speaks to me directly or asks for help and i'm in a position too.

Yeah. This is probably what really kills
me. It's like being at a crowded party.
But, even with just a couple of people,
it's tough, unless I'm REALLY comfortable
with them.

yes, I use the wrongplanet chatroom daily, well lurk a lot but that is just me focusing on other chatrooms that he uses too, but yes I do talk on occasions

I'm known as "__Pikachu__" on there which is annoying but I don't have much choice in that

I don't go on WP or ChatAutism Chatrooms... just go on another IRC network that is small with a few friends.

No. My computer won't hold the chatroom here, and I've disliked other chatrooms. I tend to avoid them. I like these better - they give me time to correct what I've said and I don't have to respond immediatly to a thought.
