Let me first say I love real-time chat as a rule.
That said, I would love to chat with lots of the folks
on the 'pedia, but would also not like the idea that
someone could immediately interrupt editing with
chats. The up side is that it would really help with
collaboration. The downside is that I think that the
pedia may not be at a point where users would not
first use it for flaming or jumping in to grind axes.
Having a block mode would help, but then those
conspiracy accusations would rear their ugly heads.
<hoping that y'all realize I'm still interested in the
wikipedia and don't think I'm being a hypocrite by
adding my $.02>
