IMVU is a virtual 3D chat room in which friends, family members and acquaintances can chat using avatars in new worlds. While chatting, you may come in contact with other users who do not follow the rules or annoy you. Sometimes the chatter doesn't leave the room when they are asked, leaving you wondering if you can boot them out yourself. In order to remove an offending person, you'll have to be a VIP member or a moderator for the chat room.
