The logistics of moderating that application would be absolutely prohibitive. If it has the Bleeping Computer name associated with it. We need to be able to moderate content. I would feel horrible if during one of those 'live chats' someone less than honest and trustworthy were to give bad or destructive information. Secondly how would we capture the conversation and archive it? So that the information can be made available for other members to use and access. It would need to be added to a searchable database and made available for google searches. It would require moderators to be available 24/7. They would need to be subject matter experts about every question asked and discussed to make calls about the validity of information. That is just the beginning of the hurdles we would have to overcome. Not to mention training new members on how it would work and the rules and guidelines to follow.
I think this would be a great feature to have at BC. We could help more people and quicker. It coudl run on a Java page or something and the users coudl talk to other users about there problems in realtime like IM.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
