There are very often trolls joining the chat. There are no automatic censors and sometimes it takes a while for someone with power to delete the messages. A lot of the time, the trolls keep trolling for quite a few minutes.
Therefore I think it would be a good idea to add a level 2 requirement to chat. The downside to this, of course, is that new players wont be able to ask questions the second they have one before they're lvl 2.
I do think this would be a good way to prevent trolls though.
