As many have said, age is irrelevant.
It's what you have to say that's important to us. We want to hear what you think about the topics we discuss, we want to share your point of view
and enter into further debate on whether the points you make in a post are valid or complete poop.
Age means nothing.
Intelligence is a bonus, but not necessary. I come here to learn from those that know more than me and I try to share the knowledge I have with those
that want to know more. I even see young people here doing research for a school project or paper, but I think ATS is a good resource for students
wanting to submit an assignment on alternative topics.
Even if the Mod lombozo sets his 5 year old son up with an account I'll treat Little lombozo with the same respect I treat a member that's well past
the half century mark.
Members have questioned the T&C, and some say it's too strict, but I see the wisdom of the owners. The T&C allows members of every age to participate
on the boards.
I do have one suggestion though.
I would like to see a chat room for the kids, KIDS ONLY
, with a good moderator to keep an eye on it. Established ATS members could sign their
children in with a password so they could participate.
It could be a safe space for them to go on-line and chat without worrying about all the trash that the www has to offer.
