The California and United States laws require that a person must be at least 13 years old (with parental permission!) in order to be a member of a Forum such as this. To retain "dude" (aka "Metroid Boy") as a member would be a violation of the ProBoards Terms of Service agreed to when this Forum was established. I will delete the account of "dude" as soon as I post this thread, and will ban the IP address in less than 6 hours. The delay in banning is to allow "dude" to read this post, and hopefully understand that there is no malice intended in this action. It is the law. In order to be able to keep this Forum operating, I must take this action.
Sorry, "dude" ... I hope you will not think badly of us, and will return when you turn 13, and have parental permission to do so.
Dude, like GooRoo I too am sorry that we can't allow yo te remain with this forum. Unfortunately this is one rule we have to abide by. If you have any questions you want answering we all check the Gruntz forum and if that disappears hopefully one of us will be able to help you by email.

I, along with GooRoo and Bea, am sorry that we have to delete your account with us and ban you from this forum. It is too bad that we have to do this, but thanks to all the wierdos, kooks, and freaks who haunt the Internet looking for young, innocent kids, we have no choice but to abide by the laws and rules that have been set down to protect our young people. Please understand that this is not about you, but is for your own safety.

We must be careful, kids are evil!
That's not the reason, Bjarni. The reason is that cyberspace has too many freaks, kooks, and wierdo's populating it who are looking to exploit young children. And unfortunately, it is harder to lock them up and throw away the keys than it is to keep the youngsters off of forums like this one. So we opt for the easier solution.
I can't take it anymore! I think I'm going to ex-PLODE!! ...Ha! Ha! Scared ya', didn't I?
