If real life is tough enough, internet chatting it supposed to be quite the opposite. It one the many avenues to share, explore, discuss and have fun. A place that is like a comfort zone for an individual for watever reason. No matter the chat is at home, office, coffeehouse or even over the phone its a zone.
There are a lot of good reasons to hate chatting. You can hate it because it doesn't work right. You can hate it because people pester you. You can hate it because you can't pester the people you want to pester when you want to pester them hahaha You can hate it because within the casual chatting environments most people are phonies or posers. You can hate it in the business environment because you are likely being spied on in casual chat. And you can hate it because it is just plain dumb.
Having said all that, there are a lot of people, like me who are pro-chatting. Chat, is great, because the access to someone is instant. You see them online. You ping them and ask them something and you get an immediate response.
When some people use chats to follow on an agenda, use the forum to drive a nail, to push a point, to irritate, to aggitate so when that happen nowadays (despite giving people chances) I just switch off the chat and walk away.
So enjoy life
