I recently blogged about Stack Overflow. Soon after, I got 20 page views (a noticeable amount for my humble site) from http://chat.meta.stackexchange.com/rooms/357. I went there and got an "Access Denied" page with a message saying it was a private chat room (I understand these are reserved for moderators). There was a "Request Access" button, so I clicked it. I've had the page up in my browser for 24 hours or so and it says:
"You have requested access to this room; please be patient while the room owners process your request."
I'm happy to be patient. Patience is one of my favorite qualities. However, should it not pay off in this case, is there any way to slake my curiosity about what went down in that room?
