Regardless of my personal sentiments? Didn't you just agree with them? If you're enforcing membership based on local age of majority laws, we're in complete agreement. Those are my personal sentiments and it's not regardless of them, it's in accordance with them.

Actually, the personal sentiment part most certainly referred to the "douchebag" and "international flair" comments.

Whether the underage posters are douchebags or not is irrelevant, and we don't enforce the rules for any particular effect other than to protect the members' best interests.

Sorry for the confusion, Fingers. It was, indeed, a new thought and I was using the editorial non-specific your.

When I check in with nmy mobile, I can't execute a line break for a new paragraph.

Agreed. Sounds like you're using the age thing as an excuse...

It's the privilege of old age. You should appreciate that, being a 42 year old woman and all.

As far as douchebaggery goes, intent is relevant.

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

I'll disagree. There's a huge difference between juvenile douchebaggery (see 4chan) and adult douchebaggery (see Debate forum). Adult douchebaggery is a fact of life on the internet, but if the forum TOS explicitly says "nobody under legal age of consumption", then it's reasonable to be upset about and prompted to report a juvenile douchebag. I'm all for less douchebags.
