That's right, irresponsible parents will never go out of style.
Its fairly commonplace for ten year olds to be on the Internet without supervision. And what parent wants to watch their kid play stupid flash games all day anyway?

It's true. And most parents are computer illiterate enough that they have no idea what their kids are doing. It's obvious that it's more than "playing stupid flash games".

Well if the results of the survey are trustworthy, then it definitely is more then flash games... But what I meant was that kids aren't supervised because the parents can't be bothered. Aaannd we're getting off topic

Thank you.

Also, those that are voting <10 or 70+, even if they are trolls, they are considered "outliers". I know that outliers can in theory affect confidence intervals, but since this is a faux survey, then I'm saying they don't matter.
I don't think the 70+ is a troll; someone on 4chan earlier today had an anecdote about his grandfather really liked it (and him being some sort of writing professional, IIRC), and he was 91 or so.

I turned 32 three days ago. A romantic at heart, this game's right up my alley. I feel kinda old compared to the majority of folks here, but we all have loved and wanted to be loved so it makes us all the same, I suppose.

thats completely arbitrary though. it could just as easily go the other way. i am 25, i dont say "i am 25 and X months and X days" so either of the categories that include 25 look equally applicable to me. your explanation makes sense, but its 6 pages in, and its still gonna throw off your results.

Yeah... life's getting pretty serious and I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest of it. KS kinda opened my eyes to some possibilities, but I'm pretty sure whatever happens it's gonna be a solo act for a while. No worries tho. Hope your birthday is as chill as mine

Voted with real age.


I am surprised to see young ones playing this game, and / or voting.. But then again, it is one of the unwritten rules of 'growing up' and 'the Internet':
No matter what you do to stop them, if they really want it, the children will find pornography. And if they can't find it, they will make it themselves. That is the reality of the current society we have in the world.
Which is why I find that case of two minors being charged as adults for sending nudes to each other on their phones as ridiculously idiotic. Oh, the irony of how 'we want to protect the children' has turned upon and against the children themselves. Curse those uptight paranoiac puritans for doing this to our law system..

Uh oh, I feel like this thread is about to get crazy.
*Bracing for impact*

Also, A Humbled Fan, I haven't check any other pages than this one and the first one, did you say your age?

22 here (am I too old to say 22 and a half??? ;D)
I am serious, and don't call me Shirley.

Just for clarification, I am not referring just to KS, but the content easily available online with just one search and click, and most other content that isn't just as easily accessible. Every protection system has it's workarounds, and most 'children' as well as almost all teenagers, so to speak, are already smart enough to figure it out. It is not necessarily as bad as people might think it is; what is bad is how much stigma and paranoia they put on such things to the point of saying "it is wrong to satisfy your curiosity, even if responsibly so".

We don't need more rules to enforce, we need to provide proper information so that whatever they do find on their quest to stave off boredom and satisfy curisoity, they won't make mistakes with the new knowledge they have found.

Anyway, this discussion is best continued somewhere else; let us get back on topic while we still can.

I'm sure senior citizens spend plenty of time on the web. They have to do something in those retirement homes.
