We can put a warning NOT to share personal information like a home address or a phone number.

Consider

So I am guessing you aren't for it.

What's preventing them from doing this anyway? I don't think they are just waiting for the opportunity of someone to create a teen section. The prevention is teaching the youngin's how to stay safe with or without a special section. Thumbsup

It's not that I think you're all gullible enough to get in the strange man's van to see his puppies and magic chocolate machine.

It's just that I think if you have a section called 'Teen Section' or something like that it's just asking for it. You're basically building a hunting ground for every pervert on the internet.

I see no point in a warning to not share personal info. Everyone already knows it yet many people still do it anyway. An extra warning in life won't change that.

I'm not really for it. I just don't see much point in it.

If the teens wanted adults, such as yourself, to give advice, they can post it out of the teens section.

Ah ha ha ha. I meant hang WITH the teens. Oops, Freudian slip much Confused

Um, I would like to chill, cuz I'm cool, yo. There, that's better teen lingo, right? Homies.

It's like putting a supermarket that sells chocolate next door to a chocolate factory. Both sell chocolate but one will draw more chocoholics than the other, same principle for me.

I still don't see why predators need a teens section to do that stuff.. I mean, as LJ said.

Basically we would like a section where we can talk to teens and relate and shit... There are some threads I would like to post in the desired section that you guys might not want to hear, or see.

We want to have a section so that we, as atheist teens can discuss things such as "What is means to be an atheist teens, and how might this affect my life." We can discuss teen stuff, like sexuality, this generations thoughts on the future and just stuff you guys would find annoying.

I'm not saying predators need a teen section. I'm saying they may be more drawn to a place that is clearly labelled as exclusively teen than a general forum.

My personal view is that you should be able to post all that stuff on the forum anyway (provided it's legal). If people don't like those sorta threads then there's nothing making them read them. If you get any crap from anyone for posting teen threads in TTOT you should tell them exactly where to shove their problem Smile.
