Keeping kids OUT of the shroomery... (*LOCK*)
    #1514954 - 05/02/03 03:27 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

There are WAY too many young kids running around these forums that have NO business attempting to grow mushrooms.. I saw one thread today where a kid was asking if he could use brown rice flour because he was living with his parents and that's all his mom had...

Is there any way to do like a credit card verification thing (no charges of course) or something else to keep anyone under 18 OUT of here??

No offence to the younguns, but seriously, it's only going to get the shroomery in trouble in the end. That's how Fanaticus got screwed - parents were complaining like crazy when their 13-17 year old kids were getting spore syringes in the mail.

I think it would be in the best interest for everyone here.. All it would take is for enough parents to catch their kids rummaging through these forums or to walk into the room when they have a picture of a huge grow of shrooms up on the monitor.

Anyway, mods please think about it... So long as we know we're not gonna be charged anything, I think a credit card verification system would be perfect. Anyway, that's my .02, just worried me when I read that post a minute ago.

That's not a bad idea, but it's pretty easy for a kid to get ahold of their parent's CC, especially if they know there aren't going to be any suspicious charges appearing....

Isn't there a disclaimer here?

I agree however that kids shouldn't be here. But what about the 18+ people with bad credit?

I think it would be better to have a non respond rule if the poster is a kid talking bout illegal things. Or the mods could delete the message.

Yah.. If they sound like a kid, then there should be a rule that you are NOT allowed to respond.

But that's not gonna help the shroomery out if enough angry parents decide to phuck it up - never underestimate the power of pissed off moms in large groups.

Maybe use that age "veri-check" system they use on adult web sites(although i'm not even sure how it works)....you know have a person have to go through that procedure B4 being allowed to register here..... :smile:

Interesting idea but I for one would never use this site if a required Id check was in place , and as to using an adult check or some other service my teenagers showed me where you could go to Kaaza and down load programs that either have lists of passwords or have programs that will cycle words through until a password is located. Possibly a different way would be to ask who was the president when you were in 8th grade or some other dumb question that would make a person to relate to a past experience to get an age reference, Hmmm thinking of that there are days I don't even recall what I ate for dinner the previous day let alone who followed Kennedy.

I dont think you understand the point of this website.

This website in my opinion is both a gateway to shrooms and...even CULTIVATING THEM.

This site is very helpful because it informs everyone what shrooms are, etc. Why would this information be only allowd to people that are 18 years or older?

Since shrooms are illegal why would someone that is 18 be able to learn about it?

and about rustiks comment about if the person "sounds" like a kid.
thats a really stupid remark. The internet is full of anonymous people. We have no idea if they are a kid or not. Sure we might have a clue. But I know people that are over 18 years old that "sounds" like kids on the internet.

So in response to the credit card system. I say no to it.
why? for obvious reasons stated above and many more that I am too lazy to post.
No offense to any of you posters though. Just my thoughts....

Check out the rules of the Shroomery:

By use of The Shroomery Website or BBS, you are verifying that you are 18 years of age or older. This site is not intended for minors, so if you are under the age of 18, please come back when you can meet this requirement.

I find that very hilarious. I know other forums that post this too. but this is drug talk. I know its very pointless to argue about this. And I am in no way attacking Ripple or any other moderator or poster.

I just find it funny that if we are talking about illegal drugs and all. Why is it that a person that is 18 years of age have the right to view such? The BBS I can totally understand because some forums allow the usage of posting pornographic images.

But just plain old knowledge of drugs. Is it that bad? Since this is illegal? Sorry if it seems I am just rambling. My heads very cloudly atm. hehehehe

If sites like the shroomery and overgrow openly welcomed people under the age of 18, that would only hurt us in our fight in the war on drugs. If soft drugs WERE legal in the US, it would probably still be illegal for minors to use them.

hahahaha. I think the internet in GENERAL is hurting us in the fight against legalizing cannabis. And I think its great that people are fighting for legalizing soft drugs.

Althought I always have in my head that marijuana wont be legal anytime soon....But its a fight thats worth fighting for!

So in response to Nuggets....
Learning about illegal drugs is bad for 18-
Learning about illegal drugs is good for 18+

thats basically what you are saying. But I hope you mean the cultivating part of the websites. I understand why that would be bad for a minor to view. But it really makes no sense since we are talking about ILLEGAL drugs.

but this is a great discussion. I'd be glad if you answered so we can have a good arguement. Not a bad one :wink:

Maybe there should be an intelligence quiz to get into shroomery. One that lil kids don't know shit bout.

This statement blows my mind. The spread of vaild information about cannabis can only help us.

I think it's important for kids to learn the truth about illegal drugs. But our government would rather them not unfortunately. Yes, i agree with you there needs to be a good source for kids to learn about drugs. Im just not sure the shroomery is the best place.
