Ok, basically chat is being a crappy dud, and if I'm not the only one, I may have a temporary solution.
I can make us a Chatzy room, where we can talk there. I just need a list of people to make admin/mods, and a list of words unacceptable in chat. If everyone is on board, that is, then this can work.
