THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Have you considered banning the underage from reading and posting in the forums?

I think most of the trouble earlier stemmed from a member being too young to realise how you should behave, what not to post and when to stop.

Also, having studied child psychology I am very uneasy with the thought of a 13 year old reading some of the threads here (for example the openhouse jack thread). Adults can put these things in the context, a child can not.

I'm not suggesting that we should start hunting down the underage members, but if we had a rule that those under 18 will be banned, it might prevent the spam from kids.

Just a suggestion. Feel free to ignore it, if you think it's a bad one.

I am under 18, I'm sure a few other decent contributors (I'm not saying I'm great at contributing, I am pretty new afterall) are too, trust me, we dont' all act pissy, act like idiots, nor post loads for attention.

Just justifying it, is all. Smiley

There is no excuse for twelveness.  We tick to say we can convincingly act over that age.

I don't have a problem with a mature 16+ year old reading and posting in these forums, but I think 13 is way too young for PMBD.

Like I said, if we had a no underage posters rule, it could prevent members from posting messages that oozed 12ness.

There's no "13" or "16". This is all still 12. They remain 12 until they are 18. Users are required to convincingly pretend to be older than 12. Otherwise they will be banned for failing to convincingly pretend to be older than 12.

Yes, well, here is your official warning for not convincingly pretending to be over 12, then. Try to be more convincing. Or we'll ban you.

Maybe this could be added to the forum rules sticky, then.
And with an explanation that older than 12 actually means 18+, for all those 13 years old, who'll start "You can't ban me! I'm 13!"

That's mentioned in the registration agreement.

Yes, but that would still be 12, and trying to argue like that is a clear and definitive sign of 12ness, and therefore violates the rules of convincingly pretending to be older than 12. Given that someone has likely already been warned once, they won't get another one.

We are. And you've already been warned.

You're a bit confused.

The trouble stemmed not from people being too young, but being too stupid.

I think quite a few of the previous spammers were 18+ - age doesn't necessitate maturity.

Also, most '12' year olds have heard of most of the stuff on the OpenLegsJack thread already.  At my school, we were talking about sex in the playground in year 4 (approx. 3rd grade - age Cool.

I also agree with Quinctia

Hyperkitty, I wasn't aware that asking something politely or making a suggestion to improve the board was considered "bitchy".

Got_Nerd, I am well aware that kids know about sex. I am merely concerned that they are reading a thread where (homo)sexuality is portrayed in graphic and somewhat disgusting light. Adults understand that Openhousejack talks about his own preferences and practices, not those of all gay men. Children do not understand that there is no "norm" for sexuality and will think that all gay men are into the same things Openhousejack is, and that it is normal for gay men to become prostitutes.
