2021 note: I'm trying to gather all the chats from their scattered places, for future readers, for the record, and for stability. Some links below will be holding places or reference, until the chat transcript is found or edited. If there is only one set of page numbers, those are the yellow/2009 edition. If two, the second set is 2019/tan cover.
