I agree with Jeremy W. This place is ruled with an iron fist. Look, it's their chat site, and they can rule it anyway they please. I get that. Still, the way they choose to run it really kills the experience.

The rules are far too strict; your freedom is very limited. It's ran more like a daycare center than a chat room of almost entirely adults.

The mods appear to have mental problems, being both barely literate and having underdeveloped social skills. It's impossible to reason with them, which makes the strictness all the more frustrating.

The admins also get quite personal. I've seen many people banned with insulting messages attached. They take the unprofessional road of adding insult to injury.

There are privacy concerns. It's become a well-known fact that the moderators can and do spy on PM's. They claim this is for the sake of adequate moderating, but I suspect there are more nefarious reasons.

It's also come to light that the admins can view everyone's password, entirely unencrypted. While I've not seen any evidence of this being abused, it's still unnerving.

The overall experience was a huge negative, and if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't. I'd save my time and effort and go to a chat site that wasn't horrible, like UKChatters.net (an unaffiliated site).

Tip for consumers: Use another chat site instead (I recommend the unaffiliated UKChatters.net).
