a different persepective

OK, I'm not supporting the idea, as I don't believe it would work so well here.

But a large chat site I'm a member of (its both message boards and chat rooms) has "poster initiated" boards / rooms. A paying member can set up up to 6 rooms of their own, and they can be public / members only / password only.

At that site it works VERY well.. Its evolved over time (its now the oldest public chat site on the internet) and there is actually only one non-member room in the whole place now (and thousands of member ones). I guess because its always been like that no one see's a problem in it. The person who sets up the room has full legal responsibility for the room (something you'll need to consider Dr Bob, as there is legal action currently being taken for child porn in a member room), and its up to them to set the "theme" if there is one as well as the restrictions.

I've been using the site 7 years now, and have never felt upset as being denied access to a room.

BUT, this isn't the same place, so I really don't know how I feel about the same happening here.
It can't possibly be done on a "length of posting" basis as that is very unfair. Maybe a membership basis would work better (and could raise funds for the site).

I dunno. Just trying to add another perspective into the pot!
