Boycott Paltalk because it is unsafe for children or anyone else

Due to unsafe chatting in Paltalk, an online chat room and instant-messaging service, because of their Terms Of Service (TOS) policy where they never investigate and are not responsible for any of the content of their chat rooms, instant messages, etc., and do not close accounts under any circumstances except for inactivity, I am asking everyone to boycott Paltalk. Pedophiles are therefore free to chat in Paltalk, along with abusive churches and ministries, other abusers, drug dealers, terrorists, serial killers, and who knows what, even in supposedly G-rated rooms, and with no repricussions whatsoever! If you have installed Paltalk, be sure to remove it, and if you do not use Paltalk your account there will eventually be closed. How do I know all this? I got an email from Paltalk's Customer Service after I complained about my having been treated terribly in a so-called "Messianic ministry" chat room there. Paltalk, of course, will not investigate the abuse due to their TOS policy. I will probably copy and paste the actual email reply soon. I would be suspicious about any organization or ministry that uses Paltalk, due to this TOS. Please spread the word to everybody everywhere about how unsafe and awful Paltalk is, and let's start this boycott!

We do not allow our children to do instant messaging or chatting for this reason. It does not matter which site. It can have bad people in it. The chat for Petz which was made for children was a notorious hang out for pedophiles several years ago so I made the rule they can not use chat at all.

Great idea, and good for you! I believe that all instant messaging is bad. Still, some are worse than others because of the administration's tolerance of abuse.

I really prefer using Yahoo Messenger. Don't use Paltalk unless you want to encounter a lot of abuse and garbage. At least, that's what I found and experienced when I used their service for a couple weeks or so. It was terrible. And, if you do use Paltalk and get abused there and witness other garbage there, don't expect the admin of Paltalk to do anything except quote to you their Terms Of Service. Good for you for leaving Paltalk alone!
