That's not true. Every member must be 18-years or older now. Let me explain this a bit more to everyone. There has been some talk among the members of F2FA on this new liability insurance being sold to protect sites from being sued. Apparently, in this sue-happy society in which we live, people are now coming after web sites for anything from violating what they feel is their freedom of speech to seeing inappropriate content posted by other members. In one case, a parent sued a site because a member had posted a link to a site they felt inappropriate for their minor son. Of course, this site had disclaimers all over it but it had to spend quite a bit of money to defend itself. Back in the early '90s, I ran a small message board which, back then, was called a BBS. I had to ban a nut who turned around and sued me. The court threw it out but the cost of defending myself was $2,500 which was a ton for a new dad living paycheck to paycheck. Basically, anyone can sue anyone over anything. Some take this hobby too seriously and it's beginning to impact sites like this one who don't make a profit or have the resources to defend itself. I'm hoping enough of these suits will be found frivolous and trend will end. When it does, we'll remove the underage ban. But we may also have to close the site to guests at some point in order to further minimize the risks. I apologize to those this impacts because it doesn't remove the risk. Guest can still visit. But it would hopefully show I am taking as many steps as I can to help minimize the risk. The thing is, those who are most likely to cause the problems are those who would lie about their age anyway. So though I agree it isn't the best solution, I'm not left with many options.
