It drives me crazy when a 15, or 16 year old asks a question about their relationship or sex, having kids etc even 17 year olds and when they give advice it just annoys me more I feel like they are so young and honestly have no idea what real life is especially relationships and sexual encounters am I the only one who thinks this should be 18 plus?

It would be nice, but you would still get 15 year olds signing up and pretending to be 18 so its pretty pointless. Either way you could just ignore their opinions, thats what I do. If I am asking a question about casual dating after college I dont expect high schoolers to know anything about that since the dating scene in high school is so juvenile and much different then the adult dating scene, since their opinion is therefore not really important I just ignore it. If it is a generic question though like "What time did you wake up this morning" or something like that I dont really care that much if they answer. Just ignore them if you think the question requires more mature people with more experience.1

Not really. You have to remember that the age of consent varies all over the world - 16 year olds, for example, are legally allowed to have sex in the UK, so it's not some underage kid asking questions, it's a consenting adult where they live.
It's also crucial that all people get the sexual health and relationship advice that they need. For a lot of kids, they don't feel comfortable turning to someone closer, and if they;re using the internet to get their sexual or relationship education, they may as well come here and get responses from experienced adults who want to help keep them safe, where answers are moderated, rather than a sketchier part of the internet.
Obviously some questions are inappropriate, e. g. a 13 year old asking things like favourite sexual position, but there are a lot of mature or curious under 18s on here that deserve the answers to their questions.4
