_____

I'm going to revisit the topic of underage users. You'll all have noticed that the numbers have increased significantly. This is, in part, due to the clean up. One of the things we do look for, are old underagers.

If, for some reason, you login and find that you're missing stories and they're not hidden, chances are we've found data indicating you were underage at the time of posting. Because the site is owned and hosted in the United States, we cannot allow anything to stay that was or is posted by a minor. This applies to active users who are now of age, but were underage at time of account creation, and adding data to the archive. It doesn't matter if the data has been sitting there for years. It still has to be deleted if it was posted when the user was underage.

One other thing about the age restrictions for this site. I know we have many users from overseas where age restrictions are not the same. Again, regardless of where you, the user, are; we have to abide by the age restrictions in the US, which is WHY users must be 18 or older to use any part of this site.
