As you are surely aware, this forum is for people who are fifty years old or older, with no exceptions. Of course, I am not checking anyone's drivers license at the door so, for the most part, I have to take someone at their word when they register for an account here. I do try to enforce the fifty or older policy, however. The forum is set so that if someone gave an age younger than fifty when they registered an account here, they will be unable to post. People can lie about that, of course. Most often, when someone creates an account here, they don't know that they will be unable to post if they gave a birthdate that would suggest they were younger than fifty. Then, when they try to make their first post, the forum will tell them that only members fifty or older are able to participate in forum discussions. When they go back and change their birthdate, the forum keeps a change log so I will still know that they registered with a younger age. In such cases, I don't automatically ban them or remove their accounts because they might have entered their birthdate wrong when they registered, or perhaps they are used to pretending to be younger than they really are on Internet forums. Instead, I ask them about their age and they will usually admit that they aren't really fifty years old. At other times, their postings make it obvious that they are far from being fifty years old. Most often then, one of you will catch it before I do, and let me know about your suspicions, and I appreciate that. So far, I haven't had to remove anyone who insisted that they were fifty or older but, if it came to that, I suppose I'd have to make a judgement call. Otherwise, if someone says they are fifty, and there is nothing about their posts that would give anyone reason to suspect they are anything other than fifty, they're not really doing any harm, so if I am looking into their age, it is because they gave someone a reason to suspect they were younger. I'm not looking for any witch hunts or anything, nor am I interested in investigating anyone who signs up for an account here, but if someone's conversation makes you suspect they're much younger than they are, it doesn't hurt to let me know. I'm not sure why someone would want to participate in a seniors forum if they are younger than fifty. I suppose, perhaps, if someone were forty-eight or forty-nine, they might feel as if they have more in common with the rest of us here than on another forum, and I can understand that. Still, there had to be a line drawn, and I chose to draw it at fifty. Most often, when someone younger than fifty creates an account here, they are here to spam the forum, and they would have been removed for that anyhow. This has not occurred very often, by the way, but it does happen every now and then.
