    I think it's great when 15-year-olds show an interest in such things. Like I have said before - I wish I had known about it when I was your age....

    Most people here are sensotards and don't even realize that they can look in someone's profile to see what their age is... lol. Might explain that somewhat (or that people just don't care as long as someone is smart).

    I think that there are a lot of retarded adults who act like five-year-olds and a lot of fifteen-year-olds who act quite mature and well-read and knowledgeable for their age....I'd much rather discuss things with a mature, young person than a retarded, immature old fart. Then again, I love discussing things with a mature, open older individual as well. I think it's the question of character and not age that makes a good conversation.

    Yes, for security reasons I was advised not to give my birthday. But alas, I so much like being told, "Happy Birthday, Victor", that I give my day and month, but not the year - just enough for you to remember me.

    Oh yes, I was born on the second of April.

    I don't think that's true. After all, most of our personalities are largely made up of the experiences we've had in the world out there, in which those things are strong contributing factors. It's not really possible to just leave your personality at the door the minute you go online, and quite often those factors do show through. Not only that, but there are some things that really, nothing but time can teach a person, so however wise or intelligent you are for your sixteen years (not you personally), you're just really not going to be able to disguise your natural and healthy immaturity. In such cases, prejudice can work for, rather than against you, as people who would come down on you like a ton of bricks if they knew you were in your forties and ought to know better, would be more indulgent and forgiving towards a kid.

    Plus, some of us have fought long and hard, suffered and bled for those parts of our identity, to keep and own them and earn the right to not have to hide them. Why would such people want them to be ignored?

    I try to avoid telling my age mostly for security reasons. I try to apply the Principle of Least Access (POLA) to my internet persona. I simply don't tell people what they don't need to know. This method keeps my identity safe. Many of you probably have a reasonable guess as to my age, but I shalln't confirm it.

    And, of course, there's the desire to avoid ageism and whatever stereotypes may be associated with my age.

    I've been joining online forums since I was around 12, and I've never told my real age mainly because of the lingering effects of all those television talk shows that make people overly paranoid when it comes to talking to others online. I know now that most people are smart enough to keep themselves safe online and that the majority of people online aren't pedophiles or serial killers/rapists.

    That being said...I'm 15 =)
