in reply to Chatterbox - should I post/message?
The chatterbox is fleeting and temporary. Yes, many of the monks have known each other for years, and they talk in the CB. But does that prevent you from posting at all? After all, they talk in the regular nodes as well.
What exactly are you worried about writing to the CB? I've said some silly things in the CB, and no one has revoked my monkey status. Or Monkish status. Yet. ;)
