The content control system allows a user to flag someone as performing an indecent behavior.If a user gets flagged enough times in a short space of time they are banned from the site for 40 minutes.So I think at this point, it’s better for me to go on by myself.I need to start by thanking my co-worker for suggesting this story's headline. "So basically you're saying you want me to act as — what would you call it — bait? (And, though I didn't admit it at the time, maybe a tad concerned that users just might click past me, too. "I was hoping you'd, um, help with the story," he said. As soon as they see me, they'll click, 'Next.'" OK, he did have a point there. I was minding my own business, editing a movie review, when my friend Bill Forman stopped by my desk and told me he'd just been OK'd to do a cover story on Chatroulette. "You mean that chat website overrun by exhibitionists and masturbators? I'd heard about the site on one of those late-night tabloid TV shows (which, of course, I was flipping past on the way to PBS). "Why are you suddenly concerned about my parenting? "Here's the thing: If I go online alone, I'm not sure I can get a story. " I'm puzzled for a moment, then realize what he's thinking.
With $1.2 million coming in every year, and only 3 people working on the site, it’s certainly looking like a legitimate long-term business.
Here I'd been afraid of feeling victimized by predators and creeps invading my living room, and instead I'm feeling empowered.
