I visited your site for the first time yesterday and entered one of your 18+ chat rooms, including the messed up Gay chat. Shortly afterwards, I received a ban along with some trite threat.
Apparently, either one of your mods made a mistake or he/she misconstrued my behaviour. The login page states that a person MUST be 18+ in order to enter the room. Once I got in there, I was pretty alarmed: there were minors around as well as old men requesting to chat with kids. It's understandable if some of those potential offenders cannot be blocked (e.g. proxies etc), but the least that could be done is to block minors from these rooms who willingly enter it despite the 18+ rule.
I did the moral thing and directly PM'd two or three of those under-18 chatters and asked them to leave the chat room. Suddenly, one of your mods blocks me. The angering part is that he/she assumed I was doing something wrong while in fact the mods are deliberately exposing young people to online threats by refusing to remove them from 18+ chat rooms. I have two questions.
1) Why are underage persons not removed from 18+ chat rooms at first sight? It's not only unsafe for them, but their presence ruins the experience for many of the adults.
2) Are you not the least bit concerned that people might report chat-avenue.com and its administrators to the authorities for hosting 18+ chat rooms where minors are carelessly allowed to mix with potential kid abusers? If some of them are permitted in there as a way to trap the pedo bears, it's not going to work -- you're still putting them at risk. If some of are you playing cop and pretending to be kids, then that implies that, again, you're encouraging the mingling.
I recommend that you implement some sort of test question on the login page. Perhaps something that a younger person is unlikely to answer correctly. I understand it's impossible to keep track of everything that happens in chats these days, but until more is done to make the adult chats safer and more comfortable for everyone, the "Be sure to tell all your friends and families about us" ad will always sound scary. I've been un-banned, but returning to this sort of environment is not worth the frustration.
