I have been becoming concerned of late regarding the interaction between the younger (legal minors) and older members of TB, especially in forums like BG OT. Especially in view of recent events in BG OT and the threat of legal action that resulted from them, I have been wondering if there isn't a way to make it easier for people to know with whom they are corresponding. For example, in a thread in BG OT that has been quite lively this evening, quite a bit of sexual innuendo was being exchanged between a couple of older members and an underage male member of TB. When I pointed out to the older members that the person with whom they were conversing was underage, they stated that they weren't aware of the fact and quickly exited the thread. In that same thread, as well as in other threads, a number of older members have been prodding (one might say harassing) an underage female member of TB to post pictures of herself. This is problematic for obvious reasons. Again, when I pointed out the girl's age, some members edited their posts and exited the thread, while others persist in their requests. Would it be possible to require members to list their ages in their profiles and to have the ages appear next to their username in the title bar at the top of their posts? This might alleviate some of these issues. Or, to take it a step further, would it be possible to require proof of age before members can post in OT? Social interaction between minors and people in their thirties and forties in forums like OT exposes Paul and TB to some very serious potential legal difficulties, which could likely be avoided with some simple preventative measures. Is it possible to make any of these changes to reduce the potential for problems? Thank you.
