Chatroulette tries to ditch the flashers

It all comes down to the flasher problem.

The website Chatroulette — which unites people all over the world for live, random video chats — has been plagued by awkward, and possibly illegal, nudity since it became wildly popular in February of this year.

People who log onto the site with a webcam are thrown into a video conversation with a stranger, who, according to one analyst’s report, is likely to be a stranger without pants more than 10 percent of the time.

The major hitch in that utopian vision: the nakedness, which led some to turn away from the site.

“With the help of a few good developers we’ve started collecting information, such as IP addresses, logs and screen captures of offenders who actually break US/UN laws by broadcasting innapropriate [sic] content in a specific situations,” he writes.

“I hope that with help of a Criminal law we can finally get the problem out of our shoulders and get existing organizations which usually solve these kind of problems to help us.”
