I was not able to answer the kind response of a user, that I made a request. He sent me a cool message to be open to receive me after he and his wife are vaccined. I want to thank to his answer but I could because the request was closed.
Should we let people continue a chat after request is closed? I would say: yes.
Category of Friends as the option to chat with someone I think is not logic, because I would need to add a person that I dont know to send a message.
