Why was my account closed?

It was actually a joke. I'm not really 10. I'm 22 years old or about to be 22. Why the heck did that happen?

Would it be alright to make a joke on Yahoo Answers about it?

Michael, even if you were kidding, we are required by law to close any account that IDs as under the age of 13. It is no joke. Once we close an account for COPA, we can not resurrect it. Please do not joke about being underage on any website that is bound by COPA laws.

What are "COPA" laws?

COPA stands for 'Child Online Protection Act' and you can read about it on wiki by going to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_Online_Protection_Act

Hope that helps!

You're kidding right?

If you 'joked' about your age .. an age that (by law) is not allow on this website, you deserve to be booted off. Being that this is a public forum, I'm sure you can understand the difficulty of determining who is joking and who is being serious. Breaking the rules is not a 'joking' matter.

You screwed up .. and paid the consequence.

If there are other forums that will tolerate your 'jokes' .. then that's where you should go and play.
