The matter of age likely comes up once in a blue moon as a problem.So you talk to a twelve year old the exact same way, in that same amount of detail, and expect the exact same level of knowledge, experience, and reasoning as a fifty year old? A while back we had someone asking about something (motors, I think) and the nature of the conversation changed drastically once it was discovered that the person asking the question was a sixth grader.
But you are still choosing to miss the point. You want to require people to jump through hoops in order to avoid disclosing information that YOU find convenient to have a small fraction of the time (the overwhelming majority of threads are NOT people asking what part to use). But if that's the standard, then why shouldn't people be required to jump through hoops to avoid disclosing information that someone else finds convenient to have some of the time?
The problem of suggesting parts comes up much more often than that (at least for me).
My default mode is that the poster has only a limited knowledge of electronics, regardless of age, unless they show me otherwise.
But it was just a suggestion.
If you think clicking on a box to say you don't want to post your location is jumping through hoops, then you sense of proportion is way different than mine.
Obviously your are hung up on the privacy issue (why is this such a big frickin issue anyway?), and I'm not going to change your mind, and you're in control, so I'm out of the discussion.
