....and with all due respect to the members and our freedom of speech here, one wonders if the content of some posts is appropriate for this venue. Some of the conversations in chat can leave you breathless from laughing so hard, but they just don't seem to play out the same when immortalized in print, i.e., some posts in the Ich bin ein Berliner! thread. Our three word story can get disgusting at times too. Funny perhaps, but disgusting none the less.
Consider the fact that some members here were but 14 when they found this site, I think it's safe to assume that there may be minors perusing these threads. I think the true purpose of this site could be irreversibly compromised if a parent were to learn their kids were exposed to such things here.
Maybe a compromise could be reached and such things could be put in the spoiler tag so as to not be so obvious?
What would be perfect is if there were an age/DOB prompted feature, that activates at registration, that denies access to some of the threads or posts. Nothing obvious at sign in, just an automatic feature. Only those that lurk and discover such a feature, prior to registration, would be able to lie to get past it. Either way, it would relieve the responsiblity I believe we all have as caretakers of this site.
