People tend to state their thoughts and opinions more emphatically in chat rooms than they would ever dare in real life.
Like message boards, chat rooms are popular spots for so-called flame wars in which two or more users enter into a tirade of insults sparked by a minor disagreement.
If you're going to spend a lot of time in chat rooms, you have to learn to ignore all the noise and concentrate on your own conversations.
One of the unfortunate realities of chat rooms is that sexual talk -- sometimes harmless, sometimes explicit -- often appears in rooms that have nothing to do with dating, sex or relationships.

But unlike other addictions, this one isn't officially recognized.
Harris has been tracking sexual predators on Mocospace, posing as an underage girl or boy. The arrest affidavit shows Fluet posted this message on Mocospace: “Any girls want to make some money hit me up.” According to the report, Harris, posing as girl under the age of 15 responded: “How much $$$ and how.” Fluet responded: “200 strip show sex and head,” according to the report.
Then, the report showed the conversation moved to text messaging, where Fluet allegedly asked Harris for naked pictures.
