What? No more chat?

So, Munkus came into G+T saying no more Chat thredes, and I was wondering if this is the consensus forever, and the resaon behind it, other than his terse explanation.

    I'd like to know as well. I can understand Linksville being locked, with what was going on, but it always seemed that the G&T chat thread was incredibly tame.

    Please excuse the rudeness, but this is bullshit.

    We could have at least done 200.

    Yes, this is true. I can't say anything more on the matter at this time, but we've had some problems recently, and this is the solution we've arrived at. I'm sorry, but this is something that had to be done.

    They're yanking you. The better question is why Munkus is the forum admin now. It's probably their doing to rile us up and spring some new 'contest'. One that ends 3 weeks late will little fanfare.

    Aw, c'mon guys. Couldn't you at least have let the current one hit page 50 and meet a normal conclusion? Just slamming it shut and going NO MORE CHAT THREADS ARGAHRGAHGRHAGRHAGRHGAHRG at page 41 seems a bit, well, harsh.

    Look, I brought up this problem a long time ago in the mod forum, and we just now reached this conclusion. This descision was several weeks in the making and was not exactly done lightly. I regret that it had to happen before your great milestone, but as soon as I got the greenlight I acted.

    I think the problem was the fact that we liked it.

    I just don't see why you won't give us a REAL explanation besides "It was a liabilty." What did we do that caused problems?

    I want to know now. The chat was one of the best things in G+T. With out it, we have more thread derails, more flame wars. Th chat made it all more tame. Yes there was some stuff that went on, but it was all with in the rules. I don't see why you just don't take the complaints to the people who post in that thread and have them deal with it. Change the rules and enforce them.

    Suspicious that it comes as the chat thread was getting right to 200...

    And the forum is supposed to be down tomorrow.

    If you truly regret this happening before #200, you would reverse your decisions. But all I see here is some hype.

    without a reasonable explanation that's where my money is too.

    munkus seems to be involved in these kind of things anyways.

    someone also just asked alpha about pranks, and he said he had some stuff up his sleeve. just before 200 is suspicious...

    the fact that it would probably cause more problems than... (what ones does it cause?)

    and so on
