I wish there was a way to permanently sign out of the Google+ Chat. I HATE chats, with a passion. Yet everyday I come on here and I am magically signed back in. Google desperately wants me to waste my time with small talk and pleasantries.

No thank you.

Then why don't you change the privacy settings of Chat to Custom and uncheck all circles so that nobody is in your chatlist and therefore nobody can chat with you (You won't appear in anyone's G+ chat that way)...
Sweet. Thanks didn't even know that was an option.
I created a separate G+ Chat circle and only include the few persons I actually like to chat with. Then I unchecked all circles and only checked that one G+ Chat circle. That way I am in control of who can see me in G+ chat and who can start a chat with me.
