i totally agree here with Hal, and i also use message very often. If i
expect a quick response or want ot chat then i use chat. If i don't need
a quick response or don't expect a response at all, or the other user
is offline i use message. For me its like an email, and my vision is to
replace email with XMPP-mail in the next month/years. Many clients make
no difference between chat and message, but this is another problem.
