If you have been directed to this page by one of our moderators, via e-mail from the site admin, or via one of the comment replies, then you need to be aware that you are not allowed to access any of our chat rooms system ever again.
This is notice that we will be permanently logging additional information about you that may include personally identifiable information.
Should you return to our chat rooms ever again, this information may be shared with third parties.
Some users are temporarily kicked from the chat rooms system for up to 24 hours, and their ban is auto-cleared by our system. Some people may be banned, and then have their bans cleared by the site admin for one reason or another, however if a permanent ban is placed upon you by one of the moderators, and you are not explicitly told your ban is cleared by the site admin in the comments section or via email, then your privilege to access our chat rooms is revoked permanently.
Attempting to circumvent a permanent ban placed against you can result in further actions than a simple ban on your screen name or ip address. Some people have tried to access our system using other methods to get around a ban, and a very few have tried to say that they did not know they were perma-banned, and simply returned to the chat room without the knowledge of being banned. If you have been sent to this page, then you should have no doubt, we do not want you to access our systems ever again.
In some situations over the years people have tried various methods to get around bans placed against them, and we have been forced to develop additional policies and procedures to prevent unauthorized access by these people. It is my hope that we will not need to take these additional measures against anyone. However some people have commented saying things like “What are you going to do if I go to a friend’s house and log into the chat room from their computer – haha.” – well there are several things we might do, and we have done them all at one time or another.
To save me from answering these questions to each and every abusive idiot who thinks they are hiding behind an anonymous keyboard, I will make some things clear here.
For most of our users there are no logs kept of their chat room activities, when some people break the rules here, we start to log additional information about them. How long these logs are kept varies, and in some situation we make permanent logs that are copied and saved in multiple locations.
What will we do with this information?
In most cases, people who are banned accept that and do not return to our chat rooms, and so we need not do anything with the extra information that is saved. However in a few cases we have needed to share personally identifiable information with third parties in order to prevent further unauthorized access. This could include:
Sending information about you, your logins, and what was said in the chat to your ISP.
Some Internet Service Providers will take our abuse complaints and disable the ability for their subscriber to access our web servers. Some ISPs contact the person who is responsible for the internet service account and give them the details of our abuse complaints. In several situations the ISPs we contacted have disconnected their subscriber and banned them from getting an account with them in the future. Your Internet Service Provider may do any number of things with the information we send them, you may want to check the terms and conditions of your ISP. Some ISPs have directed us to forward information to law enforcement agencies that have jurisdiction over their company, and in those cases we will.
In a few situations we have been compelled to share this information with law enforcement authorities as well. We have had to contact law enforcement in several countries to provide them with information in order to get the ISPs to take further action in some cases, and in a few cases we have asked local authorities to investigate users. In some situations we have asked authorities to pull additional information from people’s ISPs including lists of all web sites and web pages they have accessed. (Most ISPs retain records of each and every web page you have visited to the past two years). In some cases we have filed complaints and asked people to be investigated for violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, or CFAA.
In some situations we have blocked an entire ISP from being able to access our chat systems, and in a few cases we have blocked entire countries from having access. On some occasions we share ban information with other webmasters, and a few times have blocked access to people for more than 1,000 other web sites.
We have had to do other things as well over the years, but I am not going to talk about all of them here.
My point is this, if you have been sent to this page, then you are banned. Permanently. Period. End of story. Do not return to our web site.
You are not allowed to access our web site or chat rooms.
This is not going to change. Accessing our site without permission is a theft of services, and may violate several other laws as well. Before you decide to go rogue and try to find another way to access our services, I highly suggest you speak with a lawyer or an attorney and consider the ramifications of what may come down on you should we take further steps to prevent you from accessing. Contact your local legal aid society if you need cheap / free legal advice.
We take our web site, our chat rooms, and our rules very seriously.
For those who want to whine about this not being fair, I simply say it may not be, however it’s my room, it’s my rules. Our chat rooms are free to use for adults who follow our rules, but they are not some government funded public service that is supposed to provide free communication to the masses. This is a privately owned web site, and we have our own policies and procedures. No one is forcing you to use our site, we are simply telling you that your invitation to use our site has been revoked.
If you have been directed to this page, then you are already two steps closer to having take additional steps to prevent you from accessing our services. Please do not waste your time or ours by returning. In some cases we may seek civil damages including financial compensation by filing a lawsuit against someone, and we really don’t want to do all that, but we have, we can, and we will if it becomes necessary.
I suggest you think long and hard before attempting to circumvent the ban that has been placed against you here. There are plenty of other places on the internet that you can go chat.
