Chatroulette is begging you to no longer stick your penis onto the camera.

SHARE


What happens to your prestige when all your male followers do is stick their penises out to unsuspecting viewers? The dilemma of a rising internet star.

17 year old Andrey Ternovskiy, should be screaming all the way to the bank- but frankly he is not. The reason? The founder of Chatroulette, a  website that pairs random strangers from around the world together for webcam-based conversations, that gets up to a million hits a day and has already being blessed with angel investors, venture capitalists, and Silicon Valley scenesters is incurring a problem. What problem?

NYMag and Gawker explain:

“The site is quickly losing it’s appeal as more and more people are turned off by the sheer number of people exposing themselves or worse on the site. The brand is becoming permanently associated (with help from Daily Show and South Park features) with the more disgusting parts of humanity.”

Does this surprise anyone? What did you expect grown up men to do in the comforts of their own virtual world? Read Good Housekeeping, behave, overlook all the filthy sites, keep their animalistic urges at bay, keep their peckers in their pockets? Is it time to ban penises on the web?

    Thank you GrammarNazi, I did not know the proper use of that (sic)

    Finite: Yes, but what happens when malicious users start flagging everyone just for kicks?

    The solution is so easy it is kind of sad they haven’t implemented it yet – it’s called a flagging system, and it is what makes most mostly-uncensored web forums readable. Simply let users choose if they want to talk to someone who has been showing their dick to people all day, and a way to indicate when they’ve just seen penis. You could also have a safer mode where you only talk to people who have gone unflagged for N conversations already.

    Getting a new IP address is far more trouble than most people will go to, and I doubt this service works over the tor network anyway, so… problem solved!

    You may donate my exorbitant consulting fee to a charity of your choice.

    If the incorrect usage of “it’s” used in the quotation is in the original quote, it should be followed by a “(sic)” to denote to your readers that you aren’t an idiot. Please don’t promote poor English, motherfuckers.
