It says that 13-14 year olds should use the kids chat room, I will, but first lets have a look in here.
Once again no age check or name validation is asked for; I don't really know what I am expecting, but as a grown man I shouldn't be able to easily pretend to be 13 and female.
Immediately as the page loads I am sent a Private Message stating; "Hey babe wanna cam to cam? I've now put in my age, gender, and created an image that is the sort of thing a 13 year old girl might pick.
Now i'm hit with two new private message requests asking A/S/L, from cute CAMBOY, and taylor/aim/beep.
Soon I am contacted by "Buff boy", he asks me; "r u alright" I say i'm bored, and he replies; "i'm bored too" and then he asks A/S/L? So I tell him no, and he simply responds with "ok".
I go through the registration process and I have to provide an email and a post code, but no other security.
To start with I want to pick a online name that suggests that I am a 13 year old girl, so i need something more than just a name.
There is always a contention problem with online names, so after a bit of digging as to the type of names girls pick, i am going to create the user: Lauren Flower94.
The login is surprisingly free of email checks or age checks, and takes you straight to a chat room without having to give any profile information. " This is again in a private message format and these people it seems don't want to chat in the main window.
This is good because anyone inside doesn't immediately have access to your profile information and you are just a name, but this is also equally bad as chatters can't see who they are chatting with and there's no way of knowing is Cute Jules is actually a sixty year old divorcee. A familiar chat room screen is shown and that are a good number of people in here chatting. This is interesting as these bozos are working from a name alone and I haven't even set up a profile yet, so lets do that.
I look at the first profile and find no info for cute CAMBOY, and the same for the second.
