Thanks for the helpful answers Joe
#1: What do you mean? What rule in TOS would this break? However, even if there was some rule, what harm would it cause anyone here? What harm does it cause you?
#2: In tems of real time chat - there is no live chat and PM function here. If you recall, the old site had real time chat (fior awhile) as well as PM, but this new interface doesn't. It seems that what the individuals here are discussing is real time chat, which can't be done.
