    Is it possible to have this back?

    I know stu had problems with the amount of bandwidth it consumed + the nature of the plugin being an easy route for unwanted traffic to enter the site...

    But there has been numerous threads from the "regulars" asking for its return...

    Is there a way around the issues?

    Or is it simply not possible?

    Cheers,

    Mos

    If we could also look into limiting karl to single word replies too it might save a bit...

    Eg.

    Rad
    king
    Noob
    Mug
    nob
    Badman
    bacon
    lakrits

    etc

    :confused:

    I remember it as a place where we learnt to write backwards and stop Roadrunner from self-harming.

    The crowning glory of the chatbox was the Chloe - Rocksteady episode, all I can remember it as being a place where The Voice really ramped up the pressure on other members. Afternoon to midnight was The Voice baiting and my god did people bite, he didn't leave anything dangling that people didn't want a bite of. I preferred the early morning slot, I just got home from work, Karl just dtarted work, Tuna would pop in, Moskit, Borf, Fran, it was quite quaint and respectable in the morning, then the testoterones built up throughout the day all to be taken out on a fat tranny. Yeah the good old days
