First of all this is not my idea. I saw another post about this, and I've been thinking about it ever since. I am simply bringing it up again.
So do you think they should make a separate G@G site for under 18 users only?
I am an under 18 user, but i have disquised myself as an 18-24 year old user in order to avoid discrimination (which i knew i would face if i had told my true age).
I actually really want to see a TeenG@G because there would be no more discrimination. I would finally be free to be me. Plus i could converse with more people my age--the people I'm usually seeking advice from to begin with.
I want to start a petition to make this happen! I want TeenG@G! So what do you guys think? Who's with me?

That sounds like a terrible idea. Then the pedophiles would have an even easier time than they do now. Like do you know how much time mods spend pulling down and tracking down gross older people hitting on teenagers? It's a huge part of our time.
Like look at this thread. Does this make you think there should be a site without older users?

Here is my thing about teen users- Yes the skew GAG towards virgins/naive/un-experienced/etc. And sometimes they can have way too much drama. BUT this is a place where people come to learn form the other sex. At what age do you need that information more than in your teens when you are precisely what I just described?
I joined as a teen user like five years ago, and I got great information from older users on things I was too embarrassed to either ask, or would have been difficult to figure out myself- and I am very thankful to this site for that reason.
Now... I would think the ability to keep teen users from commenting may be useful. For as much as I enjoy helping teens out with their problems with my own experiences, it is admittedly annoying to have the majority of my questions answered by teens with opinions that skew my responses towards naive/inexperienced.
I am not saying this should be implicated as it could do more harm than good i. e. alienating teens from most of GAG, but I would like SOMETHING, but not a separate site.0
