wrestlervic saidThe solution is to charge a fee as you have to be a legal age to have a credit card. That would stop most, except for the one's who steal their parent's cards. Even if RJ had a fee of $1 a year that would cut out most of these scammers. Scammers tend not to want to pay.
Agree. And if they steal Daddy's credit/debit card, they run the risk of him seeing a charge he doesn't recognize.
You may recall RJ once had both free and paid premium memberships, before switching over to entirely free. Not sure why, I guessed maybe too much hassle (did Chris actually ship my RJ T-shirt to me with his own hands?), and perhaps more money from the site host, since free meant we lost the option to block advertisements. But I don't know the economics of social sites, and maybe free caused the membership numbers to rise significantly.
In any case, if the economics would favor it, I'd endorse a paid subscription, as a way to filter out the underage.
