OK, I've just clicked that invitation to the chat room box off for the 20th time. How the HELL do you turn it off?! I don't feel like installing IRC on this computer. How do I get rid of it????

If you checked it "off" then you won't appear on the list for others to "invite" you. What more do you want turned off?

You don't "install IRC" on your computer, you access it on a chat server. The only thinkg "installed" on your PC is the tiny java applet, and that is not permenently stored on your pc, it is just downloaded into you computer's memory for that session -- which, once again, is not an "installation".

Thanks AC - I was confused by that - because I was sure I hadn't installed anything....

What do you mean, checked it "off"?

What I was asking about was the pop up box which popped up every time I clicked on anything on the site, and then took to popping up regularly while I was engaged in reading threads, or responding to posts. The only option was to click 'OK'.

I did look at the chat room, but I'm not really in to them, and misunderstood the pop up installation wizard to mean that it was going to install something on my computer (rather understandable, in the cirucumstances, eh?).

The fix was to leave the site, and then come back again, as it turned out.

Oh, you received those pop up boxes because someone you know (it said who in the box you saw) was in the chat room and inviting you to join them. If you received a bunch, it is because that member sent you a bunch -- they must have really wanted to talk to you!

If you don't want to receive any chat room invitations, just go to the chat room and click on "Send an Invitation", then check off the "Disable" box, and then scroll down and click the "Send Invite" box to submit the disable command (it'll say "invite sent", but it didn't send any unless you checked off other members names in the list). Then you will not appear on the list anymore and nobody can invite you to the chat room.

The chat room thingy said the chat room was empty! that's another reason I didn't proceed with registration (that and not liking chat rooms in general). I'll go see if it'll let me edit stuff without downloading IRC...
