Ingame chat board: should I implement it ?

What experience do you have with chat boards in games, do you think will it be hard to moderate ?
Because i was thinking about it, but i prefer to spend my time coding than moderating a chat board :P

The open feint chat rooms are full of people trying to cyber sex with each other and exchange instant messenger numbers, both of which are against the rules.

I would suggest that you leave the chat rooms out.

If your game is popular, then modding them will be a full time job.

If your game isn't popular, then there won't be anyone to use them.

You can always add them in later if you decide you really want them.
