I've run across a number of posts in the last week or so that a new member says something like "You probably won't listen to me because I'm only
12", or "Well I'm still only 16 so discard my story if you want...".
There's been a few more, but I want it to stop.
Your age has nothing to do with what you can contribute to ATS. Sure we have a lot of older members on the boards, and ATS does seem to attract a lot
of intellectual types. We also get the ones that are too coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs.
But don't let that make you shy away from posting your thoughts and feelings on any topic.
It's the diversity of this community that makes it strong, and the younger members are a vital part of that.
I have seen a few members grousing about all the new youngsters on the boards, but hell, it's summer and I'm glad you've discovered one of the most
interesting sites on the web to visit. As time goes by you'll become the future Mods and the lifeblood of this site down the road.
What say ye all you old farts, the kids are welcome here, aren't they ?
