    Please don't troll me as this is not about how you feel about adult content, just asking for clarification of the rules.
    Lately I have seen a fair few posts about accessing or hiding porn on the iPhone and iPad because of how they don't have Flash in the browser. Now there are an unnaturally high amount of children in this forum due to the iPhone launch.
    Are such inquiries against the forum rules?

    IMO I would not give people advice on the topic as you can't truly verify peoples age over the internet. For all you know you could be 'helping' a 14 year old boy.

    You have to be 18, in the US at least, to sign a contract with AT&T and purchase an iPhone. If someone is 18 and can't handle reading threads about hiding a porn stash, perhaps they should grow up.

    The minimum age of forum members is 13.

    There are no forum rules against discussing how to hide information on an iPhone or iPad, discussing any app that Apple has approved in its App Store, or discussing the issue of adult content.

    However, links to sites for adult content should not be posted in the forums. There will always be borderline cases, so report the threads or posts that concern you and the moderators will make the call. The moderators have already deleted at least one recent thread that contained such links.

    There's no way that you're blind enough to believe that everyone who owns an iPhone is aged more than 18 years.
    Thanks for clearing that up Doctor Q.

    Even CNN said porn sites are early adopter of HTML5. So you are worrying about nothing.

    You can't see it? Seems to be the best new position available.

    My iPad can't see that white but the iPhone makes it quite visible.
