Otherwise, let the boys be boys. I'm 25 and was on forums at 13 learning the ropes in this hobby among others. I have no issue with most of the young ones on the site and would hope the older generation would take kind and help them out when in need.
I second this notion. I believe minors aren't held legally responsible to an online contract. That's why it needs to be cosigned by a legal guardian.
Edit: Straight banning or restricting anyone from a discussion forum (ie. anything but b/s/t) seems like a knee jerk reaction with no real merit besides "kids are annoying."
Always looking for Minnesota Twins cards/memorabilia!!
