  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

    A chat box may be useful, I agree, but a problem too. It means a lot of work and has to be "babysat" 24 hours a day. I don't spend so much time in front of the computer. It may also become a problem when people use foul language and I can't control what they write.

  3. this chat box some times very usefull but sometimes is very painfull but nice sharing and keeping posting...:]

  4. @Karin & @Shaz: I realized those problems will come up when we install a chat box. We have to control that box all the time just like what Karin said that we are like a "babysat", opening our eyes 24 hours a day. But I don't wanna be a babysat. I will do it when I have a plenty time. Do it very relax and let my readers to leave their messages. Anyway, I do thanks to your visits and comments. Nice to know you and have a great day.
