So do you report this? and if so to whom?
 
So lets say (hypothetically) there is a world class D bag posting on an internet forum that requires that you be 18+ to post. The forum is about the discussion of a substance that 18 year olds are not allowed to have (lets hypotheticaly call it a tobacco site) This guy happens to have linked his handle profile on this internet forum to his myspace page where it very clearly states he is 16.

So every time I read something this guy writes I think, o **** what a d-bag, and wow, he can't spell, what a moron etc. I then begin to think how much better my day would be not having to read things he has written, and consider reporting this flagrant violation of boards TOS, to someone so I never have to hear from him again, or well at least a couple of years till he is old enough.

Would doing that make me a big d-bag or what?

Mods, I guess I'm looking at you for advice?

I'm a douche bag all of the time when it comes to this. I've found 3 or 4 people on HBT that as soon as I read their introduction post, I got that feeling and googled their username and found out their true age. I have no problem doing it and I don't think you should have any qualms doing it either. Go for it, be a DOUCHE!

Yeah, that's absolutely NOT a douche move, and in the context of HBT it's highly appreciated by the mod squad. Especially when it's clear that someone's underage, they really aren't welcome here.

No under 21 douche bags allowed. :D

report! REPORT!

Unfortunately, *warning! I am gonna sound OLD!* people that young do not have the maturity to refrain from posting douchy stuff that they think is cool, but just irritates the rest of us.

I respect your asking. You have done your duty! I will be happy to stamp your non douche card to renew it's validity.

Click the "report post" button and type a short message. The mods will take it from there.

I think maybe the US is the only place that makes people wait until 21 to drink. How about we say no douche bags under the legal drinking age of your country of residence? Gives the place a little more of an international flair.

I'll go slightly against the grain here.

As far as douchebaggery goes, intent is relevant.

If you're reporting him because he is underage, not douchey.

If- like your post makes it appear- you don't really care about the age issue, but want to exploit it to get him booted just because you think he is dumb and has poor spelling, that is pretty douchey.

Fingers. We do exactly that. We look up the IP to verify. Regardless of your personal sentiments, we need to keep the best interests of the site on mind.
