I remember a time a few years ago when I could go into the AIM chatrooms and meet interesting people.
Now the chatrooms are so full of pornobots, it’s just not worth the trouble. The same is true of MSN chat.
IRC doesn’t have this problem, but too frequently I have an interesting chat with someone then never meet them again. AIM and MSN have a certain stability of identity that IRC lacks.
So my question is, is there any chatroom out there where one can meet interesting people, not be bombarded with porn messages, and have a decent chance of chatting meeting a chat friend again?
