Once again, you haven't gotten the point.

I have not called you immature and no, I have not said that 18- or 18+ are more mature or more immature.

It's not about how immature or petty some of your thoughts may be. They're your thoughts.

What I was getting at is that if you're so "above it all" then why even waste your time with it?

If you don't care, why do you try and try to make people see your points?

I understand that you came here to post your thoughts but let me put it in a more politically incorrect way. Do people of hispanic or african decent go to KKK meetings to try to disbute what the members are doing is wrong? No.
Why? Well for the obvious sane reasons but also because they know their better than that so why waste their time with people who may dislike them because of their ethnic background.

Everyone has problems.
I said this before.
Some big, some small. All important and all different in sometimes the littlest ways.

What I don't get (and probably alot of others don't get either) is that you come here, yell and bitch at the maintainers because of what rules they have set and expect them to change them or expect that it's okay if you broke the rule or something.

They're the maintainers, they could decide that only blondes can join and that's their decision. They put the hard work, money, time, and so on so coming here and checking that little box kinda is like saying "Well so what, I don't care about respecting their rules even though their giving us this place to post our thoughts.". They can set whatever rules they want to set. They put the work in it. Even if it is a free semi-public journalling site.

I mean, you don't sign up for webspace that doesn't allow nude photos to make a porn site and expect it to stay up, do you?

Just because it's free and their giving it does not mean anything goes.


And for the record, Just because you're 16 does not make you immature. Just because you're 25 does not make you mature. It's not about that here.

And you may ask why we're here promoting their rules of not allowing people under 18 to get a free user account other than the obvious that I just stated. Well, we all have different reasons as to why but I can name one off the top of my head.

Statistics.
Want a example of how most that are under 18 act about this rule?
Then I think maybe you should have checked out over18 when it first started.
And the "I'm under 18, Get over it." clique. Where a 12 yr old girl has nothing better to do than insult people by calling them ugly and saying her daddy is a lawyer so she can do whatever the fuck she wants.


No, not everyone under 18 acts like this.
No, not everyone over 18 acts any better.
It's not about that. It's about respecting other people's wishes.

Err.. you haven't put up that good of a arguement and we've said why many many times.
It just doesn't seem to be the answer you're looking for.

And most of those journalling sites have free accounts that aren't just trial. If you look at the bottom comment post you'll see that I have posted I list for you.

And even if you were 19 and breaking a rule, it wouldn't change.
Respect is respect.
If it said no porn and you posted porn then I would not have any different a opinion on you.
It's not respecting one's wishes.
You don't go to a close family member or friends house and do what they ask you not to, do you?
Not if you really respected their wishes.

Since their the ones who work on keeping this thing running then if you was 18 then I would have no problem with you being here.

And once again,
I don't care about age.
What I care about is respecting peoples wishes.
If that's their wish, then that's their wish.

If this was a 13+ journalling community and you were here then good for you. But it's not and that's the way they want it.

Honestly I hardly even use my blurty anymore. But that doesn't change the matter that I like and respect a person when they take people's wishes into consideration. No matter what the age.
