You edited your comment, so I'll reply to the part you edited:

Every site on the internet needs to be registered to a real person.

On ICANN, yes. You could drop the domain name, and have it accessible only by directly connecting to the IP address, or by using the Tor Hidden Service. But that would be bad for accessibility, at least for non-technical users.

What happens when they do it again and blame it on raddle and their mother goes to the media/police?

One, why do you think the parent would go to the media about it? They would probably just block their kid's access to the website. Two, what is preventing anyone from going to the media right now about this site, and telling them the site is encouraging people to shoplift, overthrow their governments, etc? You're already taking a huge risk by hosting this website under your real name (actually, I think the risk is a lot smaller than you think), so it really wouldn't matter if people under 16 were on here as well.

But grooming adults, encouraging them to break the law = Not Trouble?
