we want to view chat as a spectator

nah, chat is private.

I quite ageee - view the game, by all means, but person-to -person discussions between players should remain just that. People can use the 'general' chat (those that can see it) if they want to
trade banalities (and there's so much of that, I'm not especially sorry to have lost the facility!)

"nah, chat is private"
