i think we are forgetting an era where this was exactly the case.
Instead of closing /oat/ to more content, or closing /chat/ to more content, we need to simply find ways to open /chat/ up to more content.
"But Moony! How can you open up /chat/ to more content without it just becoming /oat/?"
Well, i feel it is simple c: Content is not just about subject matter, it is also about community.
A good solution, i feel, to solving the issue of /chat/ is to open it up to serial threads again, and perhaps invite a slow merger of /gala/ into chat.
Frankly, as a poster of /chat/, i disagree with Daioh though. i have seen no hotbeds of drama... or breaking of friendships, but if anypony has examples of either, i am all ears.
