Chat explanation needed

O.k. first of all if this shouldn't be here or whatever, delete it, and accept my apologies. Secondly, I really enjoy and since finding the chatroom it become even more enjoyable on a whole. And third, your website, your rules. Totally. I can dig that.

But I am completly confused about things going on in there. A month or two ago when I first came in (may have been a bit longer) the topic was reptiles in the day and you kept language clean, after nine it was cool to have a bit of fun. Then one night I went in at almost midnight-1 am my time and got kicked because I said "s*it* which I had said many many times before without being kicked (late at night) I am NOT saying I want to cuss, fine whatever no cussing. That's cool. But I mean its one thing, then it changes. There are like what? Zero kids in there at midnight? But o.k. that's cool I can dig that rule too.

But today I go in there and I was told I cannot even type another chats name. Even if I am complimenting it. I also read you cannot bash another chat/site in the chat. Totally cool with me, it is easy to keep those feelings to yourself. But when I clarified this by asking if I can't even say another chats name that I go to, I was told I couldn't. I don't get this. I chat in a million rooms and I can't compliment someone elses good job now? Or even mention I chat anywhere else? In the chatroom? This is a little nuts if you ask me, but its not my website. I just want to get things straight.

I just find it odd because *anyone* can set up their own channel in MIRC for free, at any time, with any rules. Its difficult to pretend I chat no where else because if I mention it to a buddy in chat, I could now be kicked? I mean seriously, in a normal chatroom conversation on I might mention like ten other reptile websites just in a convo with someone, talking about their stuff, their website or whatever! If we can no longer do this, that's cool. whatever. But I am thinking a rules page needs to be put in place so people can at least try to comply with rules and new rules. All I found is :

"The chat rooms are provided as a free service. As such, there are no guarantees given or implied. Use of the chat rooms is at your own risk. Your use of the chat rooms constitutes an agreement that you will not hold or its affiliates liable for anything said or done in the service to anyone at anytime, even when chatting is in progress. Again, by using this FREE chat room, you agree that we will not be held liable in any case and for any reason"

So maybe I missed a better explanation. But that's all I could find. BTW NO I don't want to cause trouble, but YES I want to chat and follow the rules, and not be kicked. But the paragraph above kinda implies that we CAN say things (not bashing but compliments) about other sites without worrying we are putting trouble.
