Every question on the main site and the meta site seems to be automatically posted in the main chat room. This has two disadvantages for me:
- This makes it hard to find human posts in the transcript. (“Ignoring” the user Stack Exchange does not seem to affect the transcript.)
- This takes away one of the possible topics to talk about in the chat room: it would be silly to post a link to a question which I found interesting when every question is automatically posted.
Is this feature useful to the users of chat room? If it is, then I think that it is fine because I am not a heavy user of chat anyway and the opinion of those who use chat heavily should be respected. But if it is not particularly useful to the users of chat room, I would like to suggest to turn this feature off (provided that it can be turned off).
