One investigator, posing as a 14-year-old girl, reported receiving 35 personal messages of a sexual nature over 25 minutes, Spitzer said.The senders of those messages appeared to be adult chat room participants, he said.7 letter of agreement with New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Yahoo General Counsel Michael Callahan acknowledged that "certain individuals, interested in engaging in sexual conduct with minors, have at times entered or even created chat rooms for such purposes.Yahoo is committed to continue to work with (the) law enforcement community, to minimize, target and take action against such behavior." The agreement is "an affirmative step for Yahoo," Spitzer said at a news conference.Yahoo said it voluntarily suspended all user-created chat rooms on June 15 and is evaluating whether to reinstate the ability of users to create them.Earlier that month, Yahoo removed or barred the posting of 70,000 rooms whose names suggested illegal conduct, including the promotion of sex between adults and children.I wish there was more control on the chats that you are first given cause I got a New York Chat room, yet I live in Florida so Im probably gonna leave that cause I wont understand most of the stuff people in there talk about.I like though how when you select to talk to a random person, you/they are given permission if you accept them to keep talking to you.
Let's be honest together and discover new confessions! Our users may compare the app with random chatting platforms, but "Anti Chat" is not affiliated with Chatroulette, Omegle, or similar services in any way. The chat rooms are filtered and pre-moderated for inappropriate content. For now until they change this flaw it's only getting 2 stars I just downloaded the app yesterday, and honestly I was overwhelmed at first.Yahoo agreed to prescreen user-created chat room names, to reject names encouraging sexual activity between adults and children and, on finding chat rooms encouraging such activity, to purge them within 24 hours.It also agreed to develop education materials promoting the safe use of chat rooms.Yahoo has agreed to shut down Internet chat rooms designed to promote sex between adults and children.The agreement with the attorneys general of New York and Nebraska is the first to institute systemwide controls over chat rooms likely to be frequented by child predators.
