Curious, who around here is under 25? We've pretty much verified I'm among the youngest, and I'm 30...

Perhaps he is talking about them who have not developed in mind beyond 18 to 25? Some of them are over 50 for sure...

ID, I'm your senior by 20 years and I really dislike BS logic. It is possible that you get along with it OK because of your youth.
I am still glad to see that you are processing SETI, after all that is why this place exists. Crunch on.

So how do you practically enforce an age limit? There is nothing to stop an 8 year old getting a Seti account if they want to and start posting. If you are asked about your age you lie, there is no proof required. As there isn't on getting an email account or viewing alcohol sites. They cover themselves by asking your age and provided you say over 16 or 18, they take your word for it

To have a special thread restricted to over 25's with logins and passwords would be a nightmare to manage and administrate, and take up valuable project resources to do so. And how many people would want it out of 152,925 active users, a dozen? This a scientific project with general boards and forums as a thank you to crunchers for their donated time, and needs moderating enough as it already is, without any extra load.

If people here feel strongly enough that they want to discuss this subject in greater depth, there are other dedicated websites out there to do that. And there is no reason why anyone here should not set up their own website and invite like minded people to join them.

Keep in mind this forum was created off of two Cafe threads. The Political thread and the Religious thread. Maybe it should just be renamed Politics & Religion instead of creating a new forum.
