2. Consult a host if someone behaves indecently. Host's names have a @ in front of their username or nick.

3.  If a host is not present when harassed go to the #help or #lobby room and find a host by clicking on their name. Tell the host the problem and ask permission to paste the content for viewing. 

4. Even a Christian chat room cannot be completely safe. Though the vast majority of chat conversations are edifying and Christian, you should not enter these chat rooms if the risks bother you!
