Did anyone propose a Teamspeak online phone conference server already?

That would enable phone conference-like discussion of topics without leaving a trace in Google cache and without the delays that every response in a written forum has.

The server software is for free, the client software is for free - it just takes a computer to run on (and that doesn't even need to be a professional server - it just needs a decent connection and good availability).

You mean to take the place of this forum?

The delays of the written responses are a good thing, imo. Not all of us are online at the same time. Sometimes that delay prompts us to write more clearly or put more thought into a response.

is here (http://www.teamspeak.com/). A PR re: its use in America's Army 3 is here, TeamSpeak 3 Voice Communication Software To Be Featured In America's Army 3 (http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=press&ident=20090317).

Briefly, from latter link, re: company:

About TeamSpeak Systems, GmbH

Based in Murnau, Germany, TeamSpeak Systems GmbH develops cutting edge voice communication software and integrated solutions. The company is best known for its TeamSpeak line of products. TeamSpeak is quality, scalable software which enables people to speak with one another over the Internet. TeamSpeak is a client-server solution which also includes a robust, cross-platform (Windows/Linux/Mac) Software Development Kit (SDK). The TeamSpeak SDK enables full-featured voice integration within existing products or services, including online games, virtual worlds, educational programs, military simulators, or any application where up to thousands of users require crystal clear, simultaneous voice communication.

Being more than a bit familiar with the use of conference calls in both contested and non-contested legal matters, I lean more to Schmedlap's position.

With respect to legal matters, they work best where everyone already has a written frame of reference - the relevant documents and briefs. And, of course, someone has to moderate the conference and enforce basic ground rules (which in a contested proceeding are spelled out for us).

I meant "phone conference" in a technical way, wrote it for those who do not know such software.

TS is mostly used for leisure and it's great for a casual chat or discussion - a formal setting ruins the whole thing. A channel with five participants can have an as great discussion as a discussion in a restaurant.
