I Don't Mind The Young'uns But...

Let's go back in time shall we? Picture it: Yahoo chat, 2005 or so. It was a vibrant, bustling chatroom with many people and rooms to visit and goof off in before then. It was only until the place got temporarily shut down by the feds and overhauled because it was a ********* paradise with kids coming in there, disguising their age to have access and then $hit got too real for them and the kiddy-diddlers. After that yahoo chat wasnt really the same, not to say it was ever great but it became a bit of a wasteland because of what happened. I'm afraid of that happening to EP. Were an already sanitized, censored, over monitored "o wont someone think of teh poor chillunz!!11" type of society now and as gross and disgusting as this place can be, this place is one of the last kind of sites people can be themselves warts and all without being watched. You think people complained about EP making cusswords into asterisks, wait until someone says something about the under 18 crowd lying about their age to see adult content and the creepy older people who haven't a discerning, cautious bone in their body. Yeah, some kids do need to know about the facts of life that their friends and family can't understand, but you younger people need to also know there can be consequences with stepping into an adult's world too. I figure you guys can sit at the adults table as long as you mind your manners as in being honest, mature and considerate because I dont know about you, but I'm tired of going to places that have to be "childproofed" because adults and younger people don't know how to act.

I agree. I don't relate to anyone that much younger than me to be honest. I had my teenage problems and i worked them out, I say there needs to be a 21 and unders EP.

I think they should start a teenagers version of EP... I guess it would cost a bit of money but it may be a sound investment as well (think of all the advertisement targeted at teenagers)...

the thing is that kids will always go for what is forbidden... if they made learning by heart all the works of Shakespeare tomorrow, you'd get kids who would do it just because it's forbidden...

a solution could be to ask EP members to enter credit card details... not to make any money out of them but just to check their age...

what the hell is a young'un?
