Political discussion on Paltalk?
Ran into an old brethren and he tols me he spend a lot of time doing political chat on Paltalk; I think it is through Yahoo. He said it has audio and video chat. Has anyone ever used this? I like to make a post and think about what I am saying (yeah right!), but realtime chat sounds kind of scary to me.

1. I have done it
I ended up not liking the format though. Remember that it is laid out as a chat room with dozens of people in it, all having voice capability. As such it is usually moderated by someone who passes the wand around to people to speak, one at a time. Otherwise it turns into a cacophony, and that does happen at times. It turns out to be a cumbersome method of communication, at least for me.

Paltalk may have evolved a bit since I last used it though. If it appeals to you give it shot. Nothing to lose.

2. Actually, my neighbors computer is completely dysfunctional, but
Paltalk tried to reload itself so many times, I left. I have her key and will get there eventually. She could not remember why she even down loaded Paltalk. It will not remove itself, with the add/ remove programs. I don't even have a clue what it is, so I am reluctant to just delete it.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
