IMightBeWrong Posted March 28, 2010 Share Posted March 28, 2010 As far as morals and values go, does anyone think it's weird that a forty-something year old man resides in a forum of predominantly teenage and young adult users? In particular, in the real world, what would be made of such a person interacting with young teenage girls? What would their parents think? What do we as a forum, a community and as individuals think? Do we not mind because, on the whole, this forum is faceless, with people from places large distances from each other? Is it just all a bit of fun? Or is it slightly disturbing to think that such a person freely roams such a site talking to girls young enough to be his daughter. Is this not something which is ingrained in internet etiquette as wrong? Is it not something that parents, councils, communities, task-forces, governments, devote time, resources and money to explaining is a danger within the realms of the internet. Whether harmless or not, in open society, in the real world, would such a situation, a middle-aged man talking to random teenage girls not seem odd, creepy or disturbing? Fundamentally, is apathy and inaction, naivety and complacency factors in the ability of such a person to continue doing what they are doing? I'd like to hear what people think about this. Whatever you have to say on the topic would be appreciated to get an idea, a consensus on the feelings of the board. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
