I like to check out the home page since it got so interesting with available books, book reviews and new member profiles.  One of the new member profiles is one for a 13 yr.. old boy.  What should I do?  It's so silly that I'm "tattling"!  But that's what it feels like.  DO I post to TPTB?

Please do, Ruth!  Underage members are Not allowed here at PBS!

And if you would prefer not to, you are welcome to PM any Tour Guide Leader and we will take care of it for you. There are too many legalities involved to allow the underage ones to stay members. Since they can order any book posted and erotica and books with adult content is posted here, PBS does not allow under 18. It is not so much tattling as protecting PBS. Not to mention protecting the kid, since some are not monitored by their parents while they are on-line.

Ruth--

It isn't tattling, as Cheryl said.  There have been reports previously where members have posted that they sent romance/erotica to someone, and got chewed out by the mother of what turned out to be an underaged member.  So please do report :-)

Cheers,

Catt
