Chat rooms can turn ugly quickly via emotion. What would be cool is to have one where VC participated in via a bi weekly chat or something. My experiences with chat rooms is it turns into a free for all where you simply cannot keep up with certain things, like questions. In a sense, you can create a chat already with the feature VC has via the mail by including the names of the people you want to see it. I have no dog in the fight. but suspect a chat room is a headache the owner might not like. Beefs would almost certainly carry over into the forums. Oh, and btw, some here are so .... Only time will reveal.
