Can't help you there, buddy. This is a Conspiracy Site.

Unless it's a conspiracy, I can't supply any information.

Oh, well, I wasn't implying that you shouldn't have posted this topic.

I was just making a personal comment about myself.

WOW!! The site has by-laws. I'm impressed.

I think the "regulars" here are pretty tolerant.

I mean, they're not going to tar and feather you cause you posted in the wrong section.

Hasn't happened to me and I'm a prime example!!

So, again. They're a warm bunch.

Really not much of a chat room with lot's of goofballs either.

There is serious SHIT going down!!

Can't answer your immediate question except some have said Yahoo is OK. Most prefer MS, ICQ.

Beware that instant messenger prog can be used to back-door your machine when you are online.

FWIW I use gaim to connect to AIM and MSN. It meets both of your requirements.

Why I don't trust instant messenger...

Instant Messenger Security: Securing Against the Threat of Instant Messengers

t is expected that as many as 300 million people use Instant Messaging (IM) products. Organizations are facing two problems with IM services; adoption has been driven by the end user and not by management, and the client applications were initially built for home users not businesses consequently they emphasise functionality over security. Thus, almost through the back door IM has entered into the corporate world creating yet another layer of security concern. Unsecured IM client installations are placing enterprise systems at risk to hackers, viruses, worms, Trojans, legal liability and violation of privacy laws.
