I guess I have to register as a chat-hater and non-texter, but I just 
don't see the efficiency of using chat when email and mail-lists work 

Chat requires you to sit there with full attention and wait for 
responses, and encourages one to type hastily, which can lead to 
misinterpretation. It's a complete time suck for me, your mileage may 

I get all tense and impatient during chat, waiting for people to 
type, and wishing I hadn't joined the chat. One can't really do 
anything else during a chat session.

A whiteboard or video image during chat adds a lot of value to a chat 
session. Otherwise, I don't see the point.
