[seqfan] Minors and the OEIS

Dear Sequence Fans,
Tony Noe and I disagree about letting minors (people under 18)
contribute to the OEIS.

Tony says: "We should be careful [about] allowing such
young people to contribute.  I would not want my children involved with
OEIS.  This is for adults.  I urge you to have some kind of age limit.  I
(and I hope we) do not want sensitive kids in OEIS."

I strongly disagree, and have always
encouraged high school students to contribute.

I am preparing a report on this matter for the Board of Trustees.
If any sequence fan has any comments or advice, please write directly
to me (and tell me if I may quote you by name).

Neil
