Why don't you collapse it instead of killing it ? I sometimes need that chatbox.

You can temporarily disable the blocker when you need it.

Why I don't collapse it? I find the solution above better, since I still really find it annoying.

Some people never use them.

Collapsed chatbox icon is an improvement but it still comes at a cost: requires network connections, takes some screen space and could be considered a distraction.
