    Why don't addons have the ability to chat or send messages?

    It just seems stupid about what some addons can do, but can't talk to others.

    Would be good for roleplaying..

    Because Zorba has to create a priority list of what to develop in the Addon API, and that has yet to come up to the top.

    And, while it would be nice to have, I can think of several things that should be done before Addon communication.

    There is a way for an addon to send a chat message, just no way to read chat messages.

    Secured frames can execute macros, so you could execute "/say whatever", but only in response to user input like a click. You also wouldn't be able to change the message in combat.

    upon logging in

    "/log"

    No. Any macros executed on secure frames must be in response to user input, such as a click. Addons cannot execute macros w/o that user input.
