Today I decided to block the entire orange.fr ISP network (France Telecom S.A. from what I can tell) from accessing our free sex chat rooms.
This block will prevent more than 500,000 people that use this ISP from France from accessing the chat rooms system. The main reason for this is the constant abuse we have been getting from some idiot who calls himself “Doctor12″ and similar names, coming into the room, and trolling with his hit and run messages about STDs /STIs. I engaged this user a while back about how his warnings about sexually transmitted diseases were incomplete, and amounted to posting un-asked-for medical advice, that was wrong. This troll has decided to return to the chat and continue to spread info that is not 100% accurate. After being told not to return, he still persists in posting his lame ass advice. I attempted to contact orange.fr ISP to complain about this abuse of our terms of service, but that ISP is not making it easy for me to file a complaint, and they have yet to return an email I sent about this user. The fact that organge makes it so difficult to find contact information, and file abuse complaints in English added to the situation in which I decided to simply block the entire ISP network.
If you are a regular users of the chat here, and you also use this ISP – you can send me an email (my email addy is posted on the moderator complaints page) with your IP addy, and I can look into a way to allow you to access once again. However understand that this will not be at the top of my priority list. I would like to see orange assign static ip address assignments to their users, and make contact about their abusive customers easier. Until they make it easier to hold people accountable for their actions, I have in interest in letting anyone from their network access our chat rooms. It is similar issues that caused us to redirect almost all Asia countries to a different chat system.
It’s bad enough when we get some people who do not follow the etiquette and rules we have outlined, and it’s another issue to have ISPs that do not make it easy to block bad users.
