In the end I would say it's thoroughly worthwhile to get age verified. I've only been here a short while myself, but if you look at the classifieds long enough you'll find something you like that's in your price range. Plus it'll probably be full black, which is a plus in my eyes.
This dude/dudette is a perfect example of how every newbie should be. Very knowledgeable as he/she actually puts forth the effort to read what has already been said a million times over, has demonstrated nothing but tact from what Ive seen in this persons posts. Hell if there was a "Newbie Of The Year" award Id dish it out to Ashton.
