I see what you did there...

You are luring us into a trap to tell us how old we really are!

I'm 80somehting and will always be. Actually being young nowadays is so depressing. There are so many hurricanes and boredom and financial crisis for the younger to deal with... :pacifier: :devil:

I thought I turned 27 on my last birthday. When I checked my profile for when I signed up I realised I'm intact 28.
Hmmm.

I was 17 when I joined but I was a longtime reader before then and was around during the 'dark' days when Neowin was reduced to a MSN group. As you can see from my post count, I rarely ever post.

It's hard being the young'un at work. People respect the authority that you have, but you're still talking to guys who have been around, but you're still talking to them as if you are the guy that knows what he is doing.

In the forums, does it matter? Were all hidden behind a wall of anonymity to an extent, and that allows for better discussion in my mind.
When I talk to someone in person, there is something in my mind that says, "he's younger, so while he might have that opinion there is nothing wrong with that. He/she will grow out of it.
On the forums I don't have that option. I take every opinion without knowing anything about the person that has made the comment. A comment could be made by a 30-something guy and it can come across as being made by a 12 year old. Likewise, the complete opposite can happen.

TL; DR: age means very little on a forum. (Y)
