Oh yes, I wasn't saying that that's not EVEN BETTER, but I was saying that it's actually incorrect to have Flag officer chats. It's not a phrase. But Flag-officer-chats works, although VERY unelegantly.


And I'm saying that it is correct. He's not "Flag officer chatting", he's a Flag officer who is chatting. It would be prepending the chat with a title, not the name of the channel. (Although the channel is being indicated by the title of the people using it.)

If I wrote "Captain Squid says, 'Ahoy!'", would you be unhappy because someone can't Captain Squid say?
