its almost more then 10 years i am working with computers but i never addicted to chat kind of things..it was normal. even today, when i use internet and login to my yahoo messange, i put myself invisible, so that no body could see me and i feel chatting is nothing but a waste of time. i only come visible when i have something to ask from somebody...

Eehehe true some years ago chat was really abig deal on the ent and many people used to come in chat romms and so on...i think it was funny too especially when you are young!! So i came in some cases on chat rooms but really often in some cases was funny and intersting but not all days and so often!!I think the main purpose against chat rooms that they were the perfect media to take threat and viruses in fact also big companies as microsoft with msn they quitted their chat rooms special to pass all on the messanger so in a more private form one!! I think they were ok as media...and if somebody found even love in chat eheh it was cool the same!!

Absolutely, and I am not 16 years old. ^__^. I met this wonderful guy online almost a year ago and we have been chatting albeit weekly (mainly during weekends) since then. Our chats last from three to five sometimes even more than six hours and we just never ran out of things to talk about. He lives across the globe and we manage even with the 12 hour time difference. So in a way, you can say I am addicted to chatting - but with only one person! ^_^

Hi, ya last time I used to chat a lot online on MIRC, yahoo messenger, ICQ with people around the world. Last time, I was still using dial-up and I spent quite a lot of money on Internet chatting. Now, I hardly chat anyone and I am into earning money online now.
