I have decided to shut down the free chat rooms permanently.
This has not been an easy decision, but today something happened that made me decide to give up on it. After spending an immense amount of time and money trying to keep this system running, and battling so many issues, I found that someone decided to come in and share a hidden link that would provide a “full screen” direct access version of our chat. This is in violation of our terms of service. It is also against the CFAA law.
It’s bad enough that I have to fight with so many other things – but when our regular users decide to use methods to steal from us – fuck it.
I am shutting down the chat server, and will not be bringing it back online.

It was fun for a while, but I am done.
Hugs to all the cool people I met, and here’s a middle finger fuck you to those who made it a difficult journey.
FYI – anyone that had used this nefarious link to our chat in the past has already seen the complete forbidden access info and already knows –
Accessing the chat via the hidden url causes several issues. Users will miss important announcements that are posted on the site pages, we lose the stats counting ability that allows us to tailor our systems for a better user experience, and it costs us money, as advertisers see less page views in our site stats.
It’s really pretty simple – if we have no usage stats to prove to advertisers that we get a certain amount of page views and time spent on our site, then we lose ad revenue. If we lose ad revenue, and no one is willing to pay our bills, then we have no web site – and then you have no place to chat here.
So you can thank the assholes that continue to use and share methods for minimizing the ad displays – you all were the straw that broke this camels back.
