hang on.. its very easy to go and look at illegal pictures, download illegal files, for a kid to see hardcore porn... and your saying thats fine? its a fact of life that its around, yes, but its best to keep that kinda stuff away from here.

But still you better have your COPPA ducks in a row. Law enforcement can ask to see your records. If a minor is knowingingly or unknowingly allowed in, your cajones will be up for grabs.
And knowing how COPPA works a lot of site owners and admins won't go with a hidden forum that sports adult material. Cause you just don't know who's lying and who is legit.
Yes, public usergroups can be used.
