Comments: Yeah, Free Speech, Right...

Time to hit IRC....

Speaking of BDSM rooms, every once in awhile I'd frequent the BDSM chatrooms simply because it was the only place I could find any intelligent conversation that WASN'T purely cybersex related.
(And no, I didn't go there for cybersex. I've never had cybersex because text on a screen doesn't do much for me unless it's a well written piece of erotic fiction). I started my online existence with local chatrooms and BBS's way back in 1988, and I mourned the loss of engaging online conversation when everything went global.

In every single so called "regular" chat room, you'd get a "a/s/l?" query, and then be ignored.
Bah! It's not worth it.

As for Yahoo, I think they'd be better off helping the proper authorities hunt the pedophile assholes down with extream prejudice and making their first catch very public.

A couple of those, and their problems would tone down quite a bit.

Oh yeah, now that "I'd only smack you if you were on your knees begging 'Mistress Please'" comment from a week or so ago makes a lot more sense ;)

Yep, it's the liberal solution to all problems, don't apprahend and prosecute the offender, just punish them all, all done under the blanket of one size fits all. This does nothing to stop the pediphile except move them into another domain, while painting the legitimate user with the tainted brush. I don't use chat rooms but that's not a reason to close them down. It makes me wonder why the sudden attack of self righteousness? I can't fathom it being religeous in nature therefore it has to be political. Even Google has gotten politicized.

I agree with Graumagus...switch to an IRC server and be done with it. Once you've done IRC, you'll never go back to anything run by a business.

Sorry, I think you're all missing the point...and I'm delinking pretty quickly. The international scene involving the trafficking of children has operated with relative impunity, including in our own country. If yahoo is making an overly "sweeping" move to try and curb the sexual predation of those under 18 I support it. I'm shocked that as a mother you don't have a shred more patience and tolerance.
