Suggestion: :wrong forum , I know.

:oops: I know this is taboo because this is a suggestion and not ticat stuff but I think this maybe important for this forum.

Here's my idea.

A tag of somesort for an under 16 member.
I'm as guilty as the next guy for calling someone a putz and then realizing this might be a young person .
I would hate discourage a young person from visiting here.

Your thoughts.

Thanks Geoff

I have thought of such, but then people will just abuse it by lying about their age. Maybe we should all just assume that the person we are responding to is young and be acoordingly civil to all??

In my opinion, young people just want to fit in, and wouldn't want a "tag" showing that they are under 16. They just want to be like everyone else.

football you bet said

nope , some people need to be told from time to time.
I think a junior member is a good idea.

recent replies by you

"ah go soak yer head"

"oh grow up"

"oh bull"

Space age civility?

those are hardly personal attacks.

Notice also that I said "maybe WE should..."

OTOH, if you going to quote people, maybe you should also quote the complete context they were responding toabout". ya think???

In any context neither reply was a display of civility by you. Suck it up now.
