Is there anyway to communicate with people on here besides through the question posts?
Nope sorry. The only way is through the community via answers and comments.
Nope, that's not what it's for, sorry!
Unfortunately no...I wish there was some sort of chat room on this thing
Yeah easy. Just ask for their email. But seriously, no I don't think ask.com has that sort of capibiltys. If you want to be someone in particulars friend do just ask for their email though.
