A/S/L - it might help a lot of people communicate better - if they know they are swearing at a 12 year old in a film aimed at 40 year olds etc - if next to the users name it says - 12yr M/F etc

Hi ed warner,

Respectfully, I believe this would be a very bad idea.

Swearing at another user is a violation of IMDb's Terms & Conditions - Boards. Specifically, a user agrees not to:
Upload to, distribute or otherwise publish through this Web site any message, data, information, text or other material ("Content") that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable;
Disclosing another user's demographic information may encourage, rather than discourage, bullying of other users.



IMDb is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. If you are under 13, you may not submit information about yourself to IMDb.

In other words, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to create their own IMDb accounts, since registration involves providing your name, gender, year of birth, country and email address.

Children under the age of 13 should probably only use IMDb with the guidance of their legal guardians. They should also not be posting to the IMDb message boards, since that requires registration.
