As chromatic says, ww can use /chatteroff and /chatteron commands.
But I think that could be interesting that any user could disable the chat in his user preferences.
Most monks, don't like (or forget) to disable chat in Chatterbox node (because they haven't read de FAQ, or whatever reason) or they didn't realize that once you disable chat, it remains disabled until you enable it (there is not a session control) (I realize too late :-) )
If were possible to disable the Chatterbox as a preference, most of them would do it.
The heavy load of perlmonks.org would reduce a lot...
I think it is not difficult to implement it, because nowadays the behaviour of the CB command is just what is need.
Sure that chateron, chatterof are stored in database yet.
Don't you think the same?
But don't forget the negative aspect...
There will be less chatter monks!
It's easy, if I can't see the discussion, I can't discuss about it.
