Short answer. There is no way.
IMDb does not cause age discrimination. People cause age discrimination. Also a thought to ponder.
What if a casting director that is not familiar with you personally is looking to cast 200 people that are middle aged, or seniors, or are 20 somethings, and you age is missing, you might lose out on work because the is NO age listed.

I am not an actor. My age should be irrelevant to any producer looking to hire my position in the way an actor might be. It clearly is discriminatory and can interfere with hiring due to bias against people over 50.

Again, IMDb does not cause age discrimination. People cause age discrimination.

I'm 63 so I sympathize. But I am what I am. I deal with it.

If someone tries to remove an actor's date of birth, whether it's their own or someone else's, how does IMDb know the date of birth was correct in the first place? If it can't be proven what the actor's date of birth is, IMDb should remove it if someone says it's wrong.

I visited that actor's page. If all those titles are legitimate projects then all the "thanks" makes sense. If someone made a stupid youtube video and thanked him, I wouldn't think he'd want that credit added.

Imagine if someone made a bunch of youtube videos with ridiculous titles like "Big Fat Sexy Nerds Part 1," "Part 2," etc. all the way to 100 and in the credits they thanked you. Would you want 100 "thanks" credits with a title like that? You're fine with the credit that you have probably because the title is a legitimate title.

The videos that I had on youtube were spoofs of Quentin Tarantino movies, and I remember when the person added all this information to IMDb, they also gave story credit to Tarantino because I wrote his name in the credits. Those credits appeared on Tarantino's page but were removed a few days later. Why were they removed if they were accurate? I agree they should've been removed because they're ridiculous, but going by IMDB's policy, they should've remained since they're accurate. So does IMDb change its policies when it has to do with famous people?

Ed Jones, who are you referring to when you say Bob/Rob? If you're talking about me, there are quite a few more ridiculous credits than three on my page. Perhaps you're looking at the wrong page as there are many people with my name on IMDb.

How was etc harassing you? All they were saying was that it's dumb that every single youtube video can be on IMDb.
