At the CommSec chat rooms you can post messages to other clients in real time, both
in a public forum and privately. You can also search on key words to display all
of the messages previously posted that reference a particular subject.
The chat rooms window is refreshed every 15 seconds, keeping the conversation live
and in real time. Anyone who is logged on can view the live chat rooms and participate
in the conversation. You can also request to converse with someone privately. If
they agree, your conversation is taken off line into a private window that cannot
be viewed by other participants.
If this is your first visit to the CommSec chat rooms you will be asked to create
an alias for your account. Think carefully about what alias you choose as once it
is entered you cannot change it.
If you are a guest and not a CommSec client you are welcome to use the search facility
but you will not be able to post messages. If you would like to participate, it's
easy to become a CommSec client and it's free.
If you read an offensive message please email us at
email@example.com to let us know. Tell us the date and time the message
was posted and give us a brief description of the subject being discussed. These
details will help us find the relevant message and take the appropriate action.
