WTF, BTR?

I need to say what's on my mind right now.
I just finished listening to Fab's show on BlogTalkRadio.
It was a good show, as usual, but there was a problem with the chat room.
Whenever I click to listen to the show, the chat room takes forever to load up. Today it took 20 minutes to load. Two things happen in the meantime.

1. I get a screen animation thing with two electric plugs coming together over and over, with the word "connecting..." under them. This replays over and over and over while I wait. Again, tonight I waited 20 minutes.

2. Apparently what happens in the chat room while I wait is this: Messages keep appearing, saying "Janna has joined the chat room.... Janna has left the chat room.... Janna has joined the chat room..... Janna has left the chat room." Over and over.

It's not the first time that's happened, either.

Tonight when I finally was able to get in, I saw someone had posted something to the effect of "Janna better make up her damn mind and decide whether she wants IN or OUT!"
Excuse me, people.
I'm not clicking out and clicking back in again; that's something that's just automatically happening on its own while I wait and wait and wait. I'm not doing anything to make those messages show up. Sorry if they annoy you. I'm not doing it. It's happening on its own.
Are we clear?

Janna,

Thank You

Wow--I lose my whole show tonight due to some technical crap that apparently OTHER hosts were given a heads up on. And I STILL have no idea why.

You have trouble in chat--The folks in the room giving you grief were dorks-and you already have a response

Wow

Bob: Thank you.

Mr. Fab: I e-mailed you...

Turnbaby: Weird, huh?

That sounds so much like Yahoo! Hope you get it fixed. That would tick me off too. I have my own stuff to rant about, so I'm going to go do that.

Janna just likes that virtual in-and-out stuff, over and over and over again...

Bob likes you best!

I had the chat room freeze thing happen to me once too... I was never able to get into the chat so for all I know everybody was complaining about me the whole time.

That plug thing is kina sexy though.

Janna said...

Square1: Ranting is good for you!

Morgen: It's the only sex life I HAVE anymore.

Marilyn: I noticed that about the plug thing too...
