Don't worry. There have not been age restrictions, nor will there be any. The topic came up because, well, um, er.... the best analogy I can give is that our OT forum is in it's adolescence. There will be growing pains and lessons learned.
Do we need an age restricted Off Topic forum?(80 posts)
Dear xenomex, I'm glad you feel comfortable with this site. You should. I too disagree with age restrictions; however, there are disrespectful people out there who feel no sense of responsibility to any community. Action must be taken against those individuals, not you the teenager or me the granny. A word of advise: Never write or post anything on the internet you wouldn't want your grandmother to see or hear. You just don't know who is watching or how it can come back to haunt you.
I look forward to you maybe helping me with my computer woes in the future!
(If The Geek is watching, I haven't received a daily email in a few days. I really look forward to them and learn a lot. Is the email thing on my end?)
ok thats fine i was just confussed that it got deleted and i couldn't remember what i said and i didn't think that i wrote anything that would ofend anybody but thanks for watching my back though :)
I was just wondering if she is or not, i just thought it was quite unusual for a grandmother to be using PC-Tech forums, although both my mum and my grandmother use forums, but she really does sound like she has grandchildren.
But...that could be just a funny Tech-name? you never know.
Good Morning All!
Aleeve, I'm not at all embarrassed of my age. It's just that I come from generations of a culture where a lady never reveals her age. It is considered undignified. Ambiguous by design I suppose:)
xenomex, I am old enough to be your grandmother! It might be unusual for a grandmother to use a PC-tech forum but this granny is a stubborn old broad. I like to figure things out for myself. Also, I suffer from an acute case of "geek envy" (where better for me than here?) I often wonder what I could have done had I been born with all this technology.
As far as my username, I thought techgranny was an obvious oxymoron.
jack, whs is older than me, but we are in the same familiar ballpark. How long can he be gone before we start to worry about him?
You all have great days!
xenomex, it is the priviledge of young people to question everything. That's the only way you will learn how the world works. But you have to realize that there was a world bx (before xenomex). I, for example, have written programs on a Zuse11 nearly 50 years before you were born - and that was no walk in the park because there were very few people and documents for information. Age is a matter of how the bones function - not the brain.
Here is some info from the "old days" for you to study: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konrad_Zuse
