Children In Mature Q's!

Months ago we were assured this had been fixed, it's not. Yesterday there was a Q posed by a 13-15 year old male stating he was 15 and wanted girls in the 13-16 year old age range to sext with him and exchange photo's, I flagged and PM'ed Arsineh who was here at the time, still that Q is there. There is a 13-15 year old girl answering one of the more notorious male members Q over there too. Just when are you going to protect the children? If they have to be here the very least you can do is to make them as safe as possible.

Ive flagged a load of Q's by one minor this morning. Im guessing they post them in another category and they bounce but they should just reject the Q's

Odd! Some of the words that EP filters are pretty strange tho! THey should defo sort it out!!

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The best way to help us address this issue is to flag the inappropriate post. I read in you story above that you tried to PM me. Though I do try to review my PMs regularly, though there are only so many hours in a day. So for all urgent issues--please flag and email

Hey EPArsineh, I'd like to see you stop suggesting that people flag things in response to their story which clearly stated they are complaining BECAUSE they FLAGGED and saw no result. It gives the appearance that you are either not reading the story or are just using copy and paste to post a comment without bothering to remove any irrelevant or contradictory statements.

EP Support isn't anybody's father or mother.They can't do things that their parents should do.

Ive seen that too, and lots of profiles in the 18-21 group that have 'Im 13' in them I flag them and nothing happens. EP should take child safety a lot more seriously.

EP says a lot tho :-/ They say mature q's cant be featured, they are all the time. They say hate q's are illegal and theres 2 about me that I flagged months ago. What they say happens and what does is totally different!!!

There is really no way to police that kind of thing. Anyone can say they are what ever age they feel like saying they are. I would bet that many of the members who claim to be 13-15 are in fact adults and vice versa (sp) Parents and guardians are truly the only ones who can make any difference.

There are many ways around these "safeguards", especially in a culture where the adults have trained the children to lie to get things they want. It's one of the consequences of prohibition and it's usually referred to as the "forbidden fruit" syndrome. If the "child" had not self-identified, you might never know, especially given the grammatical conformity to Standard Formal American English, or rather the lack thereof all over the Internet. Simple fixes like here on EP build contempt while more complicates ones build ingenuity. I always found ways around my parents' prosc<x>riptions of things like comic books and certain TV programs; with the internet, access to everything forbidden only takes talking to someone with a key idea for subverting the system. When I realize that one of my online interlocutors is under age, I do change tone and topics, but it is very difficult sometimes, especially in as freewheeling and open an anonymous environment as EP. --HXTP

So underage members shouldn't be allowed to have "those" thoughts or questions about it?<br />
<br />
Minors are always going to have questions about sex and all that jazz. They should be allowed to ask them and be able to expect a mature response.<br />
<br />
Having said that I also see your problem. I just don't see how to moderate such a thing fairly.

I totally see your point. It's just extremely hard unless they have a 24 hour real time policer on it or take the adult filter one step further an stop red dotters from contacting minors altogether- like no story comments or answering questions.


Waste of time n energy ..which iz BETTER spent, ...on having FUUUNNN!!!! €:-P

True! I find minors in the mature section all the time, they are not doing anything about it!
