are there any real chat rooms left? yahoo chat is all hookers and bots. somewhere I can really connect?
I’m on the road a lot. I’d like to chat but the yahoo chat rooms are all people wanting me to go to their webcams. are there any real chat rooms available? thanks.

As far as I can think it’s been that way for a very long time now. Chat Rooms are not the same anymore, sadly.
Is it true that chat rooms are being closed down on Dec. 14th?
Word in a recent email is that yahoo is closing the chat rooms. Is that fact or fiction? For Senior citizens who can’t get out this is bad news. What’s the TRUTH?

Oh, and just in case you are looking for a new home where you can still meet with your friends (virtually), please take a look at this free service: http://www.chatzy.com/
Note: I’m not associated with the site and don’t make any money by introducing it to you, but some of my friends highly recommend it and when I looked at the conditions, I couldn’t find anything negative…:-)

I agree this is a bad move, i love yahoo chat and use this for more then just chatting with people i know, i love the networking capabilities to meet knew people and find new friends… If not for yahoo chat i would never have met my beautiful wife i am married to today, after 15 years still going strong… please re-think this decision, it would be sad to see this go, i mean to be honest, what is the point of having yahoo messenger if there is no chat rooms? Might as well just use facebook, if you’re going to neuter your service by removing all of the best qualities you might as well just remove the entire messenger service aswell
Please re-think this decision…. Thousands of people use this service and enjoy it, please think about your users for once, we do not want you to close your yahoo chat service to improve other things, we want you to improve your yahoo chat service if anything…
