It could be a good idea if you can find kids that don't spk in txt but if your host is US based there will be extra work as regards the COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act) whereby you would be required to have an address for parents of children under 13 to send you written permission to let them partake. Of course, bugger all people really care and the kids sign up anyway.

If your host is not in the US; no problem. Although kids can't buy stuff online using the Amazon affiliate.

Alternatively, in a Scottish-Parliament-means-Scottish-MPs-shouldn't-have-votes-in-Westminster way, go ahead if it means under 18s are banned from the real Palimp. (Sorry Hermione!)

I advise against it, too. It just fragments the whole thing. We can handle a few teens in here if we have to.

Do I understand that you're against the Scottish Parliament, or only against teens in the Scottish Parliament?

Hello everyone.

Good-bye.
