Chat Rules

Please be advised that:
Anyone who is able to commit identity theft can also falsify an online profile.
There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you.
Never include your last name, e-mail address, home address, phone number, place of work, or any other identifying information in your Internet profile or initial e-mail messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.
If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around.
BDSM CHAT does not conduct criminal background screening.


BDSMCHAT Chat Room Rules

Chat Room Rules - Here's what NOT to do, and what will be grounds for a ban:

  • Harass, threaten, degrade, intimidate, victimize, or other wise abuse an individual or group. (Hate speech on the basis of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion or sexual orientation is unacceptable.)
  • Interrupt or repeatedly post off-topic comments to disrupt a topical conversation.
  • Sell, advertise or otherwise post commercial solicitations, including web URLs.
  • Post any URL's regardless of the intent or content of the site. (Except where otherwise noted.)
  • Post any contact information (email/instant messenger address, home phone/address, etc.).
  • Post or advertise parties, meet and greets or any other function
  • Post text, photos, images, or other content that's protected by intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to, any copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, rights of privacy, or other proprietary rights.
  • Post content that promotes, demonstrates or otherwise provides illegal instructional information - how to shoplift, how to hack a site, etc.
  • Attempt to collect other chatters' usernames, passwords, or other private, personal information such as telephone number, email/instant messenger address, home address or full name.
  • Posting another members' personal information (name, email/instant messenger address, home phone/address etc.)
  • Transmit or attempt to transmit a virus to other chatters.
  • Impersonate or misrepresent yourself as an employee or administrator of BDSM CHAT.
  • Allow or instigate arguments to escalate into threats, harassment, or become violent in nature. While squabbles may occur between members, they must remain civil.
  • Flooding of the room (continuous posts of the same content).
  • Hacking
  • Speaking a language other than one specified in the title of that room.

Multiple violations will result in deletion of accounts and any other accounts connected to this member.

Previous violations will result in future violations treated more swiftly and severely.


A Note on Safety

Be wary of anyone asking you for your personal information. Administrators of BDSM CHAT will not ask you to post such information - or request your account details (password, email address) in a public chat room. If for any reason someone does request this from you, report it to our abuse team. We HIGHLY suggest that you do not post ANY private information while chatting in a room. It's simply not safe.


Chat Room Etiquette

  1. No sex ads or blatant trolling.
  2. Friendly flirting/teasing is fine as long as the 'flirtee' doesn't mind-- any objections please advise a Moderator and the issue will be resolved. Perpetrators will be banned if a request to desist is not honored.
  3. Total respect for all is expected.
    Gossip about members, from this or other groups, will not be tolerated.
    Posts made by obvious troublemakeres will be summarily deleted and the poster banned whenever possible.
    Please *IGNORE* those posts, the less attention we give them, the less satisfaction we provide.
    If you have a clever riposte to a nasty troublemaker, save it for a different thread, it will be lost when we remove the entire troublemaking thread.
    A sense of humor is a must!
  4. Disagreements can certainly be discussed intelligently in the threads, we can all benefit from observing other points of view, but if you feel the need to fight something out, move the argument to the 'Boxing Ring'.
    Egregious attacks, other than the troublemaker type discussed above, will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators, and will typically include a note and explanation to the poster.
  5. Discussions limited only to those who are capable of consent: 18 years old and up only. --Sexual topics involving kids, animals and the dead are STRICTLY forbidden.
  6. All other alternative life/lifestyle choices are welcome-- we make no judgements about other's kinks here.
  7. As much as possible, in a serious thread discussion, please try to stay on topic. Of course we know that folks will follow tangential lines of thought, so no intention here to curb anyone's creative flow, just a general request.
