My mouse was borked so I had to use tab more often than not to navigate through the sign-up page (it was much much longer than the current one, I have to say).
By the time I reached the 'birthdate' field using my mouse(which consists of a drop-down menu), I was able to input my real birthday (28th of November), but the mouse fucked up and made my birthyear 1900.
I don't remember actually. I think I entered in something that was vaguely around the right time. This was 8 years ago though, before the mature filter (and perhaps the law that required the age gates?) so I didn't do it to get around the mature content filter.
It was more because back then I wanted a level of anonymity. Once I was a GD though, well, they had my address, signature and everything.
Servers are hacked all the time. Identity theft is real. Why make it simple LIE it isn't like it matters to any site on-line really. Outside of Government agencies charged under law to administer on your behalf such things as Social Security or Health Care etc
I've done that since I was 10 filling out magazine offers in the 1970's
Asking age is both insane and stupid. MORE insane is "register your credit card with us..." yea right like that would ever happen.
The "over 13" laws were flawed from the start, and the nanny nationhood of the "over 18" laws just leave more mental weaklings to be eaten as I tell my kids all the time, the weak are fodder for the strong.
Accommodation is better and superior to exclusion. Let the Blacks come in the front door, let the Women golf, let the Asians own more than laundry's, stop asking age and the world becomes a better place.
So, nope, Jan 1, 1950 if anyone but my friends or the government asks, has been for the past 30 years of my life and probably will be for the next 30... as my kids pointed out, I will probably be dead in another 30 @_@
Oh and for my postal code: 90210
AND if the form insists on asking for address, I use the address of the side who's form I am filling out
Actually, the Canadian RCMP recommends that people LIE on-line, as they say "sites that ask you for personal information such as your age and home address, unless they are financial or government sites that you deal with, they have no business knowing any of that information."
dA has become for me business, so they have my mostly real information on file though odds are when I first came here it was 1-1-50. And same with paypal/eBay. There are a couple other sites like this.
