    apparently, according to this new rule, new mods must be 18+, new admins are 21+, new senior mods are 25+, because of "liability". what liability? they're not forced to give away personal info

    I was thinking more, that if something awful did happen on the forum, like i heard of a news item once where someone comitted suicide while in a chat room and all hell broke loose... well, on this forum the moderators/admin don't allow any encouragement of self harm.. but say, just say, someone did end their lives and their family member found that they had been active members on this forum, and the whole case back fired and the police/family/media investigated suicideforum.com... well, i don't think it's fair to drag people who are say, 14 or 16, through that ordeal.

    If I was 14 and my parents found out that I was an Administrator or Senior Moderator, etc etc on a suicideforum, well, they would have a lot to say.. not only to me but they would be raising complaints with the forum. It's a lot of responsibility.. and if something ever did go wrong, we'd rather limit the people who it effects ethically, morally and legally.
