    Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    under the Avatar with all the other info. Of course, a few might want to opt out. Who makes a decision like that?

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    Why does my age need to be displayed near my post? Will we be applying the credo "with age comes wisdom" in order to know how to respond or something?

    I'd opt out for the hell of it, just for that simple fact.

    The young people won't care and the older guys will not want to do it. I don't want to be discriminated against because of my age. Hell, it happens because of my nationality ( I bet) Lol

    Age doesn't matter, does it? I mean it wouldn't determine anything other than "this person is older than me".

    I agree - I don't care if people know that I'm 71.

    Most forums I've been on have it with gender and location.

    In real life gender and age effect how we communicate with each other so in my opinion it's good info to have. Usually you have the options in settings to not show it if it bothers you that much.

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    It used to be displayed when I was a newb here back in early '06*.

    It was interesting to see age and viewpoints and they often didn't gel with each other in the way you might expect.

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    I'm not trying to hijack this thread, but I thought about something similar. I have thought that "newbies" should have their post count next to their post. I have viewed so many that are not particularly relevant or interesting to me. Most of them seem to be who is this, or does anyone have passwords, or go to this link, etc. I would rather have that little bit of info to help me decide if I want to bother reading certain posts.

    Most people tell the truth though.

    Although some people lie about it I wouldn't say it's irrelevant. It just means that for some people it won't be useful when communicating, but in most cases it will.

    And majority of the people who lie just take few years off so.

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    So I guess in your life your friends and the people you identify with are a random distribution? Generally speaking, 20 year olds haven't had different life experiences and therefore different viewpoints than 50 year olds? They aren't attracted to different people or activities? There's no difference in attitudes toward sex or risk taking activities? Being older, I would like think that most people behaved according to your politically correct ideal that age doesn't matter, but the truth is that it matters greatly to most people especially when you take it to the extreme and talk about the elderly and most older people are discriminated against in a variety of ways including jobs and sexually. You look pretty young. Do you have no age preferences? And yes I know some people don't, but they're a minoity and probably a small one.

    Please ignore my last post. I didn't like the way it came off sounding antagonistic. SorryHere is my correction which I was too late to edit in:

    That's me in the avatar. Not totally fat (weight doesn't matter though does it ) but I like young guys and the vast majority would have no interest in me due to my age.
    Don't get me wrong. I admire your point of view, but don't think its prevalent in the real world.

    Bring it back and drop the gender detail.

  21. #21

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    Age? Sure, why not.

    And race, income, socioeconomic status, your home address, the kind of car you drive, your Social Security Number, your credit card number(s), credit report, arrest record, size and consistency of bowel movements, etc, etc.

    That way we can make a more informed decision as to whether we wish to associate with you or not.

    That would be helpful.

    The only way I can think it might be helpful is from a generational aspect. If you're asking a question, different people of different generations will have different experiences, so you can establish if their advise is helpful to the particular problem.

    Just a thought

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    well age like avatar would be totally subjective , quite unprovable . One could presume then only that this is the age that individual wanted to present to others . Moreover that number could be quite arbitrary - have observed Cam 4 height is often listed as 1'1" . My feeling is that our principal and in the future sole method of communication is entirely neutral to all the million-and-one subdivisions that limit valuation of any intellectual statement - gender , age , education , status . Supremely egalitarian .

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    But if people gave their true age when they registered half the forum members would be banned for being under-age.

    For the record I'm 52 ... I don't care who knows it.

    You have to give your age anyway when registering it just doesn't show.

    And again... you would always have the option to not show it in settings.

    I think age should be displayed by default (but optional) .. personally I'd have no problem if it showed mine


    I'd say age and face photo should be a requirement.
    If a real face pic was a requirement I'd leave . LOL (but that'd be the case on any site, not just here)

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    It might be OK if it were done like the weather pages.

    Actual age – 40
    Feels like – 38
    Looks like – 54
    Acts like – 13


    Highs – every day by noon
    Chance of coherent participation – 30% tapering off around sundown

    and so on . . .

    I have found age to be somewhat relevant when it comes to forum culture. I would for example probably have a little more patience with a stupid 18 year old than a stupid 50 year old. I'm just saying...

    I see that old ageist agenda rearing it's ugly head. It's usually when some old crone gets uppity and wants some sort of recognition because of their age or something. Please.. Age is only a number. If you want to be respected for your age, use a handicap avatar .

    Re: Who thinks it would be helpful to have the persons age to the left of their post?

    No, because this is not Facebook. This is a gay porn portal. Total anonymity is a must. The only personal info we should be putting up for all to see is sexual orientation/gender. I don't even think people should specify their location on here.

    It just makes it a little easier to find someone's identity.

    The total anonymity on this message board is part of the reason it isn't boring, like Facebook for example.

    Again... the forums where you can see the age usually allow you to set it in settings whether you want it to show or not.

    Why should our age be displayed? After all it's only a number, right?

    Actual age 51
    Feel like 40 physically, 20 mentally.
    Look like 70
    Act like 25
