Windows 7: May I safely allow these chatroulette connection or should I block?

May I safely allow these chatroulette connection or should I block?

I enjoy Chatroulette but when I use it I often get alerts from Comodo's firewall. The sites seems to work fine if I block the connection but I do get them repeatedly and I am hesitant to create a rule to permanently allow or block them. Does anyone have any experience and can tell me what they are and what I should do?

thanks!

Dear RoloDman,
I have been to the website and the webcam chat is eloquently described as "Extremely NSFW (Not Safe For Work)". Your Comodo Firewall is asking to block it for an additional reason, the chats are very "porno" oriented, and not fit for children to view! If i were you (which i am not), i would search for an alternate webcam chat site. Kindly view this article for choices:Free Webcam Sites -- Top 8 Free Webcam Sites

Hope this helps! Always play safe.
regards and best wishes,
sree

so I guess you are saying that the connections when using Chatroulette could be connections from potentially malicious porn sites? I have never seen any adds though.

thanks for your input

I asked Comodo forums and they said I should stealth my ports and prob won't get anymore unsolicited requests.
