Sam I'm with you on this one. Under 18 means no tobacco. It's stupid but it's the rule.

There is no gray area, it's black and white. Minor in this forum is just a devestating bomb waiting to explode.

I agree, and that bomb would most likely include chris hanson and sixty minutes...

No, it just comes in a "Cease and Desist" letter, and then maybe a civil court battle.
Then we have to find that minor and go "Jay and Silent Bob" on his ass.

There's nothing anyone can do if you are under 18 and do not publicly announce it. It's just a warning, saying if you are under legal smoking age, and you are caught, you will be banned until you are able to return at a legal age. If it's that hard to deal with, then you need to stop trying to be such a rebel.

Also, if I send tobacco through a trade to a Minor, that in fact makes me a criminal. All because some kid was lying. I don't want to get in trouble for supplying tobacco products to some little kid, so you should also not be so selfish and think about others well-being.
I agree 100% w/zen on this one! As someone who trades and has been known to offer free giveaways, as I did recently for "elite members", I want to know that I'm sending my tobacco products to someone of legal age.

I see your point but this forum runs on a United States Server and is subject to US Law. Sambooka would have to go to a US court to defend his actions and I dont think the judge will side with any international laws. Besides, its too much to ask Sambooka and the mods to do ALL the research for EVERY country's smoking policy so he can write multiple lines of code to ensure compliance with the registration process. Its just not gonna happen. Servers are on US soil and subject to US law, enough said. We dont have to agree with it or like it but we have to abide by it.

I dont think, that the US controls are that strict, that they ban international U18's in the internet, if they talk about smoking? i mean, we are not in a hookah bar, where we are smoking - we are just talking about smoking and this isnt banned?!

otherwise i think the ban for younger folks is okay. in our german Shisha Forum, there are users, who are 12, 13 or 14 years old and they dont write in an adequate style. to ban users like them would be reasonable, but users who act like "adults" should be allowed to be a part of communities like this.

You've got to be taking the piss! You break the rules in the first place, admit you broke the rules but say it's alright because you're 18 tomorrow. How is anyone supposed to believe that?

It is my opinion that if you break the rules you should be banned, no exceptions.

I agree with you sam.

But, laws are different for people in different countries. Maybe you should say that a person cannot come on the site unless you are of legal age of an their country?

Pssh I but I have nothing to worry about cuz I am the legal age to smoke ^_^

lots of us have no worry's and we are abiding by the US law simply becuase this server is based in USA, if it was a german server the rules would be different, but its not.
so everyone is abiding by us law.

This forum runs on a United States Server and is subject to US Law

That is all
