I have an idea. If chat threads are part of the problem, why don't we try this. Lock all the chat threads, the open an official chat thread, which is modertated by a single moderator whose main purpose is to moderate that thread, which would ensure that no flaming or spamming occurs. What do you think? There is no way a single moderator would be able to moderate a thread 24/7. Besides, it is ridiculous to get mods just a moderate a chat thread. Bear in mind that the moderators are volunteers, and there is no reason why we should be subjecting them to something like this. If we cant clean up the JC then either we arent trying harder enough 1) try harder (most positive solution) or get rid of it . . . (not good) Getting rid of the JCC, or the thread currently inside, is not an option that we even want to consider. Cleaning it up from now onwards would require a consensus among the posters there. Moderators and rules alone cannot ensure that it is done.
