I find when i don't go anonymous people really don't care as much what i have to say. I've been called insightful and have been told i make great points and other things.. but while i was anonymous. When i am not anonymous people often mention how young i am. I personally don't think it matters unless talking about experience or something. I find i have a lot more comon sense than a lot of people on here anyways :/

It's called stereotyping, treating people as members of defined group rather than as individuals.
It is particularly prone to happen in a forum such as this where we are mixing gender and speaking freely while maintaining relative anonymity.
You notice a significant difference between how people treat you under one label (13 years) vs. how they treat you under another (Under 18).
I try to not let age give weight to what I read, especially since age is self reported anyway. How reliable can that even be?
As far as age goes, I've read plenty of damned fool gibberish coming from people reported to be 3 times your age.
What ya gonna do? :^/2
