What is the  future of Chatroulette?

I have never used it but will try sometimes in near future to understand it.
I am not sure if some ethics, rules and regulations  are involved to use chatroulette?

If you are chat addict over internet and you are fed up of talking to fake people chat-roulette is for you as its for webcam users mainly.
My personal view is that Chat-roulette applications or websites must must not allow any user to use it if he/she doesn’t have a web cam i.e working webcam.
There must be a technical validation for users who want to use chat-roulette that they must have a working cam if they don’t then they must be kicked out.
