There seems to be a misconception with the fact that if someone isn't age verified we automatically assume your sub 18 years. May I ask whats wrong with straying on the safe side until proven otherwise? This is the internet and the truth is never synonymous with it. People lie all the time, so as a safeguard against some punk kid pulling a fast one on us (its happened many-a-time) we bring up the issue of not being AV'ed, what it means, how to get it done, and until they get it done as have to assume the possibility of that person being a minor as very real. Theres nothing wrong with that, its just protecting our interests.

Sure those who vehemently indemnify a non-AV'ed person may come off as harsh but again this is all about perspective of pixels on a screen where emotion carried through is an educated guess. The person may sound like their pissed off, may sound like their jolly and cheerful but its hard to be 100% exact. Some people are just annoyed at the fact this person still has to ask questions about what being AV'ed is, how they can get a gun, etc... when its already explained EVERYWHERE on this site yet they still feel the need to make a new thread. Again its all about perspective so until the internet can accurately convey emotion then theres always gonna be problems with people who "freak out" and people who victimize themselves in a vain attempt to gain sympathy.
