no it is not like a chat. you see a topic, you click on it, read the question and hit the reply to topic button if you want to reply. you already know how to start a new topic. sometimes threads do get chatty but it isn't like a chat room.
Ha Ha, I have to laugh about that one. Here is my dog. Sometimes he thinks he is a pitbull (I have nothing against pits-don't get me wrong) My dog is a little 4lb. spoiled ball of fluff. http://www.dogster.com/?56140
