Everytime I see someone's profile as 99 years old, I start thinking of them as "old" people. Suggestion: Don't do it. You might not be projecting the image that you want to project.

That's funny... every time I see someone's profile and it says they are 99 I automatically assume they are 14.

Problem is DDO does not give me the option to not to display my age. Hence an obviously fabricated age.
The Holy Quran 29:19-20

See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.

Yeah, this. They are 14 or younger. Maybe a little insecure. I jump to a lot of conclusions lol.

Why is it that people have a problem with displaying their age? What exactly is the risk? And the effects of agism seem pretty minimal here.. So whats the deal?

To avoid age restrictions on debates?

Eh, I just take it as a joke. My age is not my age either, but I don't think anyone minds it.

There is no particular reason. But why do you want to know my age?
