I can see changing poor language, editing out poor actions but not content that is presented when attempting to present things to other members.

Reading a post for content and understanding before a submission will allow the person to decide whether it's constructive and viable to submit.

I'm a kid (well... 18) and, uh... I usually try to engage mind to reason before typing. I admit, I can get real mad sometimes (aka Obama), but who is perfect?

Perhaps, is it because you didn't specify the DOB in your profile?

I did, but it's set to not show it or my age...I thought that meant that it would show a little "Age:" thing on the profile sidebar on my posts, but I guess it's really for showing the little birthday cake icon?

I've been working on that problem for years and I always fall short of perfect. Maybe someday?

I can attest that age doesn't always guarantee maturity...
