In IRC's you can only type in all capitals, there is no text editing.
It is another way of getting another chatter to talk to you, but it is considered to be rude unless you have no choice to, which is usually when no matter what you have said in the chat, everyone is still ignoring you even though you have not typed anything rude or insulting.
It must also be noted that not only “bar fines” in the Walking Street area have skyrocketed in recent years – the girls also ask for considerably more money for themselves than their colleagues on Soi Buakhao or at Jomtien.
It started out as random text-only chat room when it was created back in March of 2008 by Leif K-Brooks.
Random video chat, however, was first started by Chatroulette later on in November 2009.
Bar owners usually pay their employees monthly salaries, and the “bar fine” is the fee charged by the bar for taking one of the service girls out during her regular working hours.
Bar fines are 300-500 Baht in most beer bars around Pattaya and approx. Please note that bar fines have recently been skyrocketing in many chrome pole palaces, especially on Walking Street, and may be even higher for “show girls”.
