this is not a matter of ages for certain boards in my opinion. yeah, its a little odd that people who are clearly not in the teen age group would want to come onto our board, and start joining in on the "inappropriate" topics, just to see if they can get our board in trouble. my parents don't care if i'm on here and if i'm talking about drinking on cruises with other teens. i'm 18 and an adult, therefore i can talk about whatever i'd like to talk about on the internet as long as i don't offend anyone. the difference in the teen board and the other board such as the carnival cruise lines board is that this is a place specifically set for teens and young people to talk and share cruise experiences with one another. a board like carnival cruise lines (which i also have posted on) is a place to talk and share experiences on ccl with cruisers.
