I think the site should instead of using the cell phone number for verification, set something up where you have to use a credit card to join and use the site. We would see a drop in high school kids participating and get more of an educated persons opinion.

We should set an IQ test instead. That way anyone who scores 50 and below can be denied access.

I oppose an IQ test as they generally aren't very accurate. This is suppose to be an academic debate site, academic debates require a certain level of education, that would be hard to do, but at least we could make it that you had to be of the certain age that you could actually start meeting these requirements.

You seem to be suggesting that age is directly related to intelligence.

Izbo, I'm gonna guess your IQ isn't all that high. You sound like someone who would do poorly on an IQ test because you aren't all that smart and then say "I oppose an IQ test as they generally aren't very accurate"...

His quarrels about "zombie" and constant assumption that he has enough popularity to gain the favors of DDO members in following his "proposals" is evidence of either arrogance or plain stupidity.

Do you honestly think a decent amount of people are going to be willing to give up sensitive personal information such as credit card info, simply to come here and debate? I dont see very many people doing it period.
I would gladly lose a million times over then win by cheating once.

I will post another giant flaw in this method in the form of a scenario.

I am a 14 year old teenager.
I use my parent's credit card to get access to this site.
I now have access to DDO.

This is also greatly flawed since your age does not determine your intellect.

Credit cards can limit a child's access to porn on the internet? News to me. I'll keep that in mind before I think to make an account on the hub.

What Izbos great and all powerful intellect failed to see is the fact that there are not going to be alot of people willing to give up credit card information.

Honestly, just cause I don't know the answer right off the bat means very little. I am in High School. But, why do we wan to keep High Schoolers out of this website? Is it maturity? Your proof once again that is not the case. So why? Your 31 years old, and you do all the things you accuse my age group of doing. So can you give me one good reason why we shouldn't be allowed on this site? Is it cause you don't want to admit you can be beaten by someone less than half your age?
