Tijuana Chat Room Test- It comes from the caution one must take before he knocks on a door in Tijuana, You don’t want to walk into a room of unsavory activities or an argument. You listen outside the door first; it gives you a chance to size up the players.
Same rule applies on the internet; monitor the site for a while to see who’s who before entering.
James was smart enough to use the Tijuana Chat Room Test to monitor the Hot for words "comment" page before he engage himself in a conversation. He so wanted to avoid the flamers, haters and psychos.
