Sometimes uses can not access the chat rooms here because someone else who uses the same Internet Service Provider (ISP) – has broken the rules, and gotten a “Broad Range Ban” placed on 1,000 IP addresses – which keeps them from coming back to the chat room, and often stops many other people (often in the same city) from accessing our free sex chat rooms.
In some parts of the world it is common for an Internet Service Provider (ISP) not to provide customers what is called a “static ip address” – so every time you reconnect to the internet, you are essentially given a new “public computer IP address”.
You can find your public ip address by visiting a site such as ipchicken.com
Some examples to illustrate:
yesterday your public IP address could be something like:
123.123.123.001 – and you were able to access our chat rooms just fine.
today another person in your city breaks the rules in our chat room and we broad range ban him so he can not return. His IP address assigned by his ISP today was: 123.123.123.005
So we banned all 999 IPs in that range –
123.123.123.001 all the way through 188.8.131.529
Now we have a permanent ban for that IP address block – anytime any other user gets assigned any of those 999 number tomorrow, the next day, next week, etc – they will not be able to access the chat rooms.
When you re-connect to the internet, and your ISP assigns you one of the IP addresses that is in the block / range of IPs that were broad range banned because of another user, you will be unable to access the chat rooms here, or with our partner web sites.
Since the ISP (Internet Service Provider) that you use has been used by many others who have frequently broken many rules in our chat rooms, we have begun blocking ranges of 1,000 IP addresses at a time – this will prevent many people who use the same ISP as you from using our chat rooms. It is unfortunate that the bad manners of a few people have ruined the ability of thousands in your city from enjoying free services such as ours on the internet, but that is currently the only way we have to fix this situation.
At this point the only relief that you will be able to seek is if you contact your ISP and ask them if it is possible to assign you a “static ip address” – that way we can “whitelist” your static IP address so you can once again access our chat rooms.
If your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will not assign you a static IP address, then I am sorry to say that you will find yourself not able to access our chat rooms often these days, and even less in the future as we have to continually broad range ban blocks of addresses from your ISP – as they make it so easy for users to abuse our service, get kicked out, and come back quickly to continue the abuse.
