I was rather intrigued by this notice on msn.com's chat page. Yet it still
seems chat is available?
As part of an overall effort by ninemsn and Microsoft to provide consumers
with a safer, more secure and positive overall online experience, ninemsn
has decided to no longer offer ninemsn Chat in this market beginning
October 14 2003. However, ninemsn will continue to provide special event
chats with celebrity guests.
This change is intended to help protect ninemsn users from unsolicited
information such as spam and to protect children better from inappropriate
communication online. In the remaining weeks before MSN chatrooms are
closed, please continue to contact our support teams should you witness or
experience any abusive or suspicious activity. ninemsn advises you not to
disclose any personal details or e-mail addresses in chat rooms.
Why is ninemsn doing this?
The increase in abuse of the Internet, such as the massive growth of spam
and the increase in unsolicited and inappropriate material, particularly
with regards to children, has led us to this decision.
