I am the age I say I am ( Born Jan 1969 ) and I can say that I have seen the temptation to change my age - I have always felt that my time on GaG would have been easier if I lied about my age and said I was younger - In fairness I got very little hate on GaG but 95% of it was because of my age.
I can imagine the heat the younger users can get so I can half understand the temptation to lie about their age plus there is a part of the young pysche that always wants to be older. Getting back to the question I totally agree putting wrong age has a negative effect on site but a part of me understands it. If the under 18s were treated a little better I think maybe there would be a lot less lying going on.
The overstating the age for sex questions I think will always be there no matter what you do but in the other areas the older users have to meet the younger users halfway rather than find fault in a younger person's viewpoint0
