I think there should be a limit on chat so you have to have a certain smartscore to use it (preventing spammers from just creating new accounts) just make it so you have to answer or post a few (legit) questions first. This has been asked before so I would at least like to know why it hasn't been put into effect. The site slows down too much when there are spammers and right now the spammer is harassing the moderator @Callisto for some reason. (in the math chat)
Here are THREE suggestions
1. You have to have certain smartscore to use chat
2. Limit on how many posts at once and length of post (spam detector)
3. Require email confirmation so people can't use fake emails

What we need to do is make as much noise about this as possible WITHOUT being spammers ourselves

Heelllooo, now I think this hasn't been implemented because alot of the new users come onto the chat for help on using the website. If they needed a min smartscore than this would hinder this. Another big reason for me is I would much rather them spam the chatbox than spamming the question area as this has a bigger effect on the community and on peoples learning.

@TraceNova I agree with you but really just brose the chatboxes. People just spam. "the answer is purple" and that had nothing to do with the topic. Why not input a limit number fo shout people's Smart Score unde like 30/40. But then again I find it quite amuzing. The conversation are close to being like a small improv group.

Limit the number of shouts per minute. Is what I'm trying to say. I dislike using internet explorer.

may be in order to use chat there needs to be a code that has to be typed like gHiL4 if the system doesn't know the email? If user is messaging more than ten times in a day. Than as smart score goes up the asking the user for the code becomes less your thoughts..
