    Hi there. I was thinking the other day how convenient it would be to have a BA "Messenger" (similar to Facebook), where you could have an instant chat with another member without having to go into Beermail/clog up your inbox.

    I apologize if this has already been proposed - I did a quick search and didn't find much.

    Thoughts?

    It's been brought up before, but we don't want to get into the instant messenger business. We'd rather continue to encourage people to post and keep the conversations in the forums. Private conversations work just fine too.

    Thanks.
