Chatroulette perverts beware,your IP may be collected Chatroulette, the online video chat room, has announced this week that is taking steps to clean up the service, which has been riddled by sexual perverts, threatening those who regularly expose themselves on the service.
Founder Andrey Ternovskiy said this week that the company is now collecting evidence, and will contact law enforcement if need be.

Says Ternovskiy: "We’ve captured and saved thousands of IP addresses of alleged offenders, along with logs and screenshots which prove wrong behavior."

Continuing: "We’ve blocked thousands of IP addresses, reported offenders and service seems to be much cleaner than before. That is cool. Now give us some time to put new features in place."

Chatroulette, since its start earlier this year, has been criticized for the amount of people who are exposing themselves, especially since many minors use the site regularly.

Ternovskiy has made it clear he is not against nudity on the site, even introducing adult-themed channels, but is very against user exposing themselves to minors. Concludes the founder: "Broadcasting inappropriate content to minors is a violation of both US and UN law. We are actively cooperating with law enforcement agencies."

So you can expose yourself just not regularly?
