Have visited this website since the mid-2000s and wanted to leave a positive review. I have read alot of the complaints and its all from users who claim they were unjustly kicked out or banned.
Supposedly the 'web's largest chat community', and holding the self-proclaimed '#1' before it, Chat-Avenue (Also known as C/A, C-A, or just CA) is a place for anything. Everyone else has it and it'll be the only way to directly talk with the members. If you're not a smart ass at times, nothing will be fun. If someone calls you a n00b, nub or newb, post a picture of Noob Saibot with an oversized question mark.
Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).
Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?
When I read the 'tech support' forum, I was amazed to see many other posts complaining about the same thing.

Picture reps are when you give someone a reputation point, good or bad, and in the comment box, post the url of a nasty, funny, or unrelated picture enclosed in IMG tags. Research shows that the Test forum is the only good one.
He threatened me and made libellous accusations against my family, apparently because my teenage son had annoyed him in a chat room. Trojan Now I was pretty angry, so I went to Symantec and discovered these trojans were serious privacy invaders (key stroke loggers and giving chat-avenue the ability to access my computer, for example).
Worse still, even though he was writing official emails, he refused to provide his name. So, I visited his web site at find out the owner's contact details so I could make a complaint. As I left the chat room, after talking with an unhelpful chat moderator, my antivirus software started popping up multiple warnings (12! I figured the moderator was tracking my IP to find out who I was, or to boot me. Next I went to the chat-avenue forum to ask about the trojans, and to seek help in removing them.
' WHO IZ DIS ' CHATMASTER' I BET I CULD BEAT HIM ^ LOL", you say? Some revere him as God, others revere him as an asshole.
From personal experience, I can say he's just some guy.
