I wanted to bring to everyone's attention that it is against Crowdgather's Rules of Usage of this site for people under the age of 18 years to members of the Marat Safin Forum. The relevant part of the "Simplified Terms and Conditions of Membership for Crowdgather.com Message Board(s)" state:
Our only requirement is that you are over 18 (if you are over 13 you can join with your parent or guardian’s permission) and have a functioning email to register.
9) Age: If you are under 14, this is not the place for you.
If you are between 14 and 18 you need parental/guardian permission to participate in our message board(s).
These "Simplified Terms and Conditions of Membership for Crowdgather.com Message Board(s)" state that they are a condensed version and refer you back to the detailed Terms & Conditions (cited in a previous post in this "Forum Procedures" topic and at the bottom left-hand corner of each page) for the full version.
The relevant part of the full version states, inter alia:
6. . . . The following rules shall govern your conduct regarding the use of the Site.
Prohibition on Use by Minors Under The Age of 14. This Site is intended for an adult audience and CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF FOURTEEN ARE NOT PERMITTED TO SUBMIT ANY USER GENERATED CONTENT, PERSONAL DATA OR UNSOLICITED INFORMATION. ANY MINORS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 14 AND 18 SHALL BE DIRECTED TO A PORTION OF THE SITE WHICH WILL NOT ADMIT ADULTS. ...
Since the whole of the Marat Safin Forum admits adults and there is no portion of the site which does not admit adults, it follows from Crowdgather's Rules governing this site that people under the age of 18 are not permitted to be members of the Marat Safin Forum because there is no part of the site which they would be allowed to access.
