Why not?

The problem with that is that around 16 is when people are probably getting into radical politics. Shutting them out of one of the few internet places where radicals can talk is probably not going to help.

Yea, that's why they'll join 18+ radical forums even if they have to lie about their age.

Ok, fine, I can see that. I myself got into a more radical way of thinking around 15. In that case, can we at least uphold the 16 barrier?

When you were 16 would you have been silly enough to announce your age in an adults only space? If so then you prob weren't mature enough to be there.

Of course not.

Edit: And I'm for 18 to be honest, but if it's 16 right now lets at least enforce that

Wholeheartedly agreed. In fact, I know a few people who got into radical politics even earlier. (Did you mean to reply to the person above me?)

I saw "why not" and that's why not to me.

Ah, I see. Sorry. My "why not" was mean to be directed at the "Reeeeeaaaaaly don't want any people who are legaly kids here" part of their comment.

If you're going to be directly affected by a change to 18+ (which we both kno u will be) then it would be in your interests to explain why you shouldn't be locked out.

I post a lot to /f/lisp and I do write a lot of stuff here. Other than you, people seem to like it or at least tolerate it.

You also start a lot of annoying drama.

So do you.

Last time I checked I don't attack people out of nowhere in my f/nettle forum and my forum's sidebar (and in randon reddit threads and in memes) and then accuse them of starting drama for finally coming in and telling me to stfu.

what's your point?

You said that you didn't attack people's ideologies in memes. I provided three instances of you doing exactly that. Whether or not I do the same thing is irrelevant, especially since I never claimed not to.

And, for the record, I didn't post mine on the heels of an argument with someone in order to put their ideology on blast, like you did.

Uh... No I didn't. Stop misrepresenting literally everything I say fam. I said I don't attack people in memes. I attack the fuck out of ideology.

And I didn't even know you were a stalinist, but that's good to know thx.

I'll give you that, then. But it's not hard to read between the lines, especially when you post them right after arguing with someone of said ideology. You did the same thing after arguing with a transhumanist, IIRC. It's pretty obvious that you're posting them to spite the other person.

if you're really a stalin apologist then you don't really have any high ground here (or anywhere)

Why are you so dedicated to bringing children into this (incredibly non kid friendly) space?

sudo wrote

I'm not dedicated to bringing them in. I just don't want to see them shut out.

People talk how to make molotov cocktails here, they talk about drugs, guns, revolution. It's never been a site for kids and wanting to open it to them makes me super suspicious of your motives.
