I am not upgrading to the premium plug-in because I have no trust in the way WPMU deals with the support on this plug-in. I have asked for PHP7 support a long time (even proposed the fix) and still nothing happened with it. Very weird for a professional party.

While testing with a couple of user I observed slow down of server due to - I suppose - many AJAX requests.

This plugin will flood your website with ajax requests every second making it unusable unless you own a powerful server. Screenshots here and here. Tested in a VPS with only 1 user connected, imagine what would happen on an active website with a few users connected at the same time. I didn't have this problem with other chat plugins tested in the exact same environment. It will eventually take your website down, eat all your hosting resources and it will cause problems with your hosting provider. It's a self-inflicted DDoS.
