Yeah, you have to be careful about people, but that is no matter were you go, not just cyberspace.

Chatting to strangers is okay, as long as you know the boundaries and are sensible about it.
It's really fun, you get to talk to people all around the world.

it's a great way to meet people whom you would normally not come into contact with.
you can learn so much from them and it's always nice to build new friendships that are not limited by geography or culture.
just remember to be careful and exercise common sense. :)

Don't worry about tomorrow, don't think about yesterday,
don't live in the future, just make it through today!

Agree! I always check the words I've typed everytime. I'm afraid of saying wrong things. Even now. But knowing more people like this isn't so bad.

So blue that it will take your heart and breath away

i walked up to someone yesterday and talked to them. i asked the person if i could as them a question and just went from there. it is always alright if you are honest and respect the other person. whether or not you are bothering them or not. that sort of thing. oh well.

well, it is always good to know a bit of the ppl you chat with. For me, i normaly dont chat with ppl i dont know a bit about them. I talk with ppl on IRC in the main chat more then in private chats. But i know most of the ppl i chat with on IRC. When i start to know a bunch of things about ppl i'm fine with a private chat.

It is not that good to start chatting with someone you realy dont know about your life or so ... it can get wors ....

Internet chatting is a great way to express yourself with no limit.
However, we need to be self-conscience that there are creeps out there. Don't believe everything you see on the net, and just use common sense.

Chatting through the net is very interesting and not interesting, everything has two opposite sides. The positive side is that you have chance to know many new people, to get information that you don't know from other friends on net and it's true that there may be lies when chatting on the net, not all of people out there be such liars you know. I saw for myself I realized that when things come to anything related to personal stuff, people tend to lie a little bit, just some of them, not all as I said. It's really not that bad, take it easy. If chatting through net is the bad thing, why people can be friends, you know many people chatting through the net and then meet in real life and become good friends or great couple. Just relax and enjoy yourself a little bit. Life is not like a dream, it's reality and it's cruel sometimes but don't be sad about it, life goes on.....^_^

Friendly chats with strangers in the public are always fine with me. Just have to make sure the conversation does not get too private.

If you think chatting is bad I invite you at Minitokyo's IRC channel so you can see how anti-social, bad, evil and mean we are, bahaha.

(it was sarcastic eh... or maybe.... not. lol)

If no one did any "chatting" then no one will meet anyone new.
That is a major problem with North American society, all so focused on their closed group of friends that they develop through high school and work that they aren't interested to talk to anyone new.
It is not all lies either, but you do have to be careful and consider the possibility.

You meet many different people around the world. When you chat online, no one can judge you by your appearence (unless youshow them your pic) but by how you express yourself.

that's an interesting point of view, but i've also heard the opposite argument that because people spend so much time on their computers and communicating electronically, that people are less social with others and aren't really interacting with "real" people as much.
i guess there's always 2 sides to consider.

Don't worry about tomorrow, don't think about yesterday,

Quote by bayumihi... i just wanna ask you that is it right to talk to stranger..

In my opinion, I feel it isn't right to be chatting in public unless you are in the right kind of atmosphere. You see, if I was walking along the mall and chatting with some complete stranger I've never known about, they would clearly think I'd be insane to openly talk to them just like that, over here.

That's why I never introduce myself and pretty much blend well within the public - I can see that by introducing yourself to people who you don't even know about, you build a lot of tension and anxiety in your mind, and sometimes you wish that you wouldn't be doing that in front of the other people here and now, knowing you could possibly a complete fool of yourself. lol

Why worry when you can just put it away, shrug it off, and move on, right? That's why I admire courageous people - at least they don't act embarrassed if they start becoming clumsy and greeting a few strangers then and there. They sure have a lot of guts indeed, and I don't know how they could pass that off without even a flinch at all.

If it was some other closed atmosphere such as the campus in university where the population is limited, then I would be a little more open-minded indeed because somehow the students we interact with are people we can relate to - discussing the possibilities of school life and the works. **Nods**

Quote by bayumilike we do in chatting ..

That's why I like the Internet. You can express yourself more and be more open to others that way. People feel more secure, so they are bound to act free and to be themselves for once. That's what I really like about chatting - the openness of contacting individuals, as well as complete strangers, though there are some negative aspects to be considered here as well.

Quote by bayumii know that most of the word writen by chatter was a lie...and now i feel bad knowing that..

lol - Don't always believe everything a single person can say. I know how you feel. That's why I settle on trust, and over time, with patience - you will find some wonderful people to chat to, I guarantee it. How you will find these wonderful people are up to you, though. Yes, good friends are hard to find.

Quote by bayumican someone tell me the ggod thing about chatting....?? please ....

You become more open about yourself and you can clearly speak out your mind that you would have never done in public, of course, and discuss certain issues / topics from a long distance without having the hassle to meet up close in person, which could be a dangerous thing to be considering about, mind you. Sort of like - chatting on the telephone, but without knowing the number. I like the safety of remaining anonymous as well over here. **Snickers**

Also, you will find people you would have never met in real life too. That's the good thing about chatting. The possibilities of meeting someone who can be fun to talk to and friendly is endless. Many years ago, people had to communicate by other means - and the good thing about the Internet nowadays is that you don't have to worry about meeting the person face-to-face any longer, so to those who normally hate chatting to people in public, this approach could be your key advantage nonetheless. To me - I like writing my thoughts out by pen or typing them out like I am over here right now. That's just my preferable style of opening up and a proper way of communicating to other strangers and close friends of mine, really.

it's not bad to online chat, but it depends on what you're chatting about. it's easier and a lot more entertaining and truthful if you both or your group talks about something thats not personal about each other. because most of the time, it's impossible to tell if that person is being truthful. for example, life, age, etc. or whatever, sorry if that's not helpful but i don't really involve myself in chatrooms much anymore, it was kind of stressing since people kept asking why i didn't log in as often as they did. i guess they must of assumed that i didn't have other things to take care of rather than be in a chatroom. ^^;
