No Minors On Ep

Im 17. I'm saying that now so you don't have to even scroll up or take your eyes off this to look. I'm just kind of guessing that you wanna look. On this site, I kinda keep to myself, write for stress relief, and haven't cared enough yet to start arguing with people. I've seen numerous times on here about people complaining about minors on EP and all that. There are some really good points and then there are ones that I see are irrelevant. But I wrote this story to say this. If you want to get rid of the minors, you could start... By not acting like a minor. It always humors me to see a fifty year old trying to argue with a thirteen year old about life. I've seen lots of cussing and disrespect from both the young and old parties and it trips me out. Ok... So the thirteen year old argued with you because it didn't make sense or whatever. That was childish. Is your fifty year old self gonna act childish back? Sometimes I can truly understand what people mean when they say life parodies high school. If you think minors are acting stupid or childish then maybe it's because they're minors. What's your excuse? Sometimes showing some class and showing your POV without copying bad or immature will work wonders. And all this stuff about EP being too sexual? Please. I've discussed things in class with my teacher more raunchy than this stuff on EP. It's my opinion that people like to make a mountain out of a molehill on here about age. You don't have to be 18+ to have had sex.
So this was my controversial stuff. I bet some people are rushing right down to the comments section to angrily argue with me about all this... Thus proving my point. ;-)

Some people don't understand that minors have the ability to click a "block" button when someone hits on them...

You make some very salient points about the maturity level, not just on this site, but on the internet as a whole. It seems as though, no matter how hard you try, eventually you are going to get sucked into a ridiculous argument with someone who doesn't actually know what they're talking about, can't be convinced otherwise, and will somehow bring you down to their level. It's ridiculous, but it's true.<br />

I also get you're point about the 18/yo mark being arbitrary, but the simple fact is that some people are trying to use this site to hook up. And, well, prison isn't exactly where I want to spend my time because I didn't card first.

And that's why I block those people. They just freak me out.
