I can see people getting banned here because they say their age out loud ewo...

Is someone out there using time getting through the comments, just to report them?

Why do you honestly care? Why may kids not be creative with us?

(I'm 20, I swear!)

Well, then again, rules are rules, and if people state their age knowing there's a risk of them getting banned they are honestly not making a clever move...

No, the move is not so bright. But people playing the police about it? It's not like it's a site for people selling drugs xD

Exactly,  I don't get why people comment their age if they know they can get banned from that, and expect not to gte banned somehow?

Mmmm, maybe they dont know that DA can track this? Or that its against the rules to be underage on here.

Some of the people who commented clearly said not to ban them, meaning they know they can be banned for it. But it makes me wonder, why do they comment then, if they really love the site so much they don't want to leave it? What makes the urge to comment so strong that people simply cannot resist revealing themselves even if they are 100% aware that their comment gives anyone who passes by a valid reason to ban them?
If people comment their age when they know the rules, and they get banned, they have no one but themselves to get angry at. There is no obligation to comment whatsoever, so really, the only reason why someone like that would reveal their age is because they really just are too naive to realize there might be consequences to what they say.

I know I'm too young for this site but I've loved it since I was 8 and I learned to draw because of this site, so I'd like it if I wasn't banned

You do realize that whether you're banned or not isn't up to me, right? xD You left a public comment on a poll for everyone to see, I'm sorry but this isn't the cleverest thing you can do and if anything it shows a lot of naivity and that maybe you really are too young to understand the consequences of actions. Same with everyone else who commented they were 12 or under. You don't want to be banned? Then why do you put yourself at risk and allow literally everyone who comes by to grab a valid reason to report you? Seriously?

honestly, if they're going to ban/report over a minor technicality as that...
If you're being immature or soliciting sex or crime or drugs, I'd understand...
But most of the time, that's obviously not the case...

Honestly, these rules and laws concerning "child safety" on the internet (pretty sure that's what that bit of policy is for) don't make sense to me... They don't truly protect anyone, and they're quite excessive in the limitations they impose, tbh...

It's COPPA. It's a law that has been imposed on American websites, DeviantArt can't do much about it but obey it :shrug:

:icondarkgrievous7945:
DarkGrievous7945 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
yep...

Stupid, though...as it doesn't solve anything, and rather imposes very strict and uncalled for punishments on people for either trying to express themselves, or create an online community.
But, to be expected of my country...

They wanna go after something on the internet that IS dangerous:
DATING WEBSITES... which are a threat to everyone...
Ofc, that would be a wasted effort...

Ohai. My original account just got banned. *raging internally*
At first I thought SpitfiresOnIce had reported me, glad to see she didn't. Sorry for assuming. <3
This'll likely get banned too. I just don't understand. Who cares? There are ten year olds on the internet, I'm not causing any harm.
Maybe when I'm 13 in four months, I'll be able to reactivate my account. But I really loved being on DA, and now it's taken away from me until Christmas.

I hate COPPA so much, and I don't usually use the word 'hate'. 
I wish I could sue whoever made that law with intentional infliction of emotional distress, because seeing my account on one of my favorite websites indefinitely banned? That is FREAKING EMOTIONALLY DISTRESSING.
Anyways, wanted to say goodbye for a while. I shouldn't have posted my age I guess, because obviously a 12 year old being on the internet is a horrible crime.
-_- 
I am holding back the urge to throw my computer through a window.

Anyway, love you guys! Bye!

wow...
wasn't me either

i hate every bit of communication-meddling policy and organization my country has..
it's a load of crap...
The FCC is on my public enemies, list, in fact...

sadly, blaming the computer isn't an option...
blame the people who caused it, and i also advocate seeking vengeance upon them!
it shouldn't be a crime...as i said, the law solves nothing

yep...
bai

So, I clicked 20-21, but that's because DA wouldn't let me vote for 22 or older. Just kept getting errors.

I am 23, turning 24 in less than a week
