Chat Thoughts for New Chatters
Millions of people are doing it and finding out things or just passing the time speaking others with similar interests but observe some basic rules -

Don't give your address or phone number.  you do not know who is reading your messages.

Kids chat rooms are strictly monitored by the larger providers.

Use another identity to preserve  - this may seem odd to those new to chat rooms but is common on the net.  Women may want to use a mans name or something neutral.

Larger chat rooms often have hosts or moderators to ensure the rules are observed and you can complain to them about anyone breaking them.
