There is absolutely no way to enforce this policy, and if it were made known, people would simply lie to get around it. I guarantee kids who wind up on 18+ sites don't simply shrug and leave the page.

I'm inclined to agree with Vanilla; it's a parent's job to monitor their child's internet useage, and to know who they're speaking to.

As for me, my inbox is as of yet testicle-free, and hopefully remains that way. Don't the rest of you get any ideas.

I have no idea what this means but it's probably the funniest thing I've read all week.

Does anyone think there's anything my seventeen year old eyed ought to be protected from on this site? The NSFW threads have "NSFW!!!" written prominently on them. I'm sure there's no way we should actually move towards Jayshreddz' "Family Friendly" music banter idea either.

No, I just think that if we allow "underage" people to join and participate, then perhaps we should be a lot more careful what we say, as a jokey, off-the-cuff remark, particularly a sexual one (or one that could be interpreted as such) could end up getting us into trouble.

If you're in a room with a lot of kids you know to watch your language and so forth. If you're in a forum where you know there may be kids (or at least, people under say 16) you should be able to conduct yourself accordingly. A chance remark, taken up the wrong way, and mentioned to someone underage, could have for instance their parents getting at you online.

It's a valid point, and a real problem. If there was some way to incorporate birthdate or age in the profile, that would be a way of at least defending ourselves. Saying "I didn't know he/she was only 12/13/14" won't really wash: you'll be asked does your forum allow these ages, and if yes, then why aren't you more mindful that there are young, impressionable minds in your midst? I can see it happening...

BTW I had a spring clean last month and threw out all my skeletons. Well, nearly them all: couldn't let old "Repressed Sexual Urges" (or as I call him, Boney) go!

It would be impossible to monitor our behaviour in that sense, as anyone can view the site without signing up to it.

That reminded me of the Red Dwarf episode where they discover the planet that changes itself according to the persons mind, and it has gravestones for all of rimmers positive personality traits, and when they died.

Unfortunately, can't find a pic, so here, have this heartbreaking reminder of what once was:
