Why or why not?

No, I would not - basically because there is too much nonsense and paranoia posted here. I'd rather have my children learn from me.

Under my direct supervision until they reach their mid-teens, I am a Fascist at heart, muahahahahahaha. No seriously, certain things being said are not appropriate for children or it is not really a children's environment.

Is the Skadi news site still up, now that is something I would leave my children view without supervision.

not at all, there is a lot of hate and derogatory remarks being made which are both not moderated well enough.

For me it would depend on their age.
This site is dedicated to free speech as much as is possble, and in that respect there is some things here which children shouldn't be exposed to. It's not due to bad Mod'ing but rather the policy of the site.
Also the realities painted here are rather grim and I wouldn't want younger children growing up too fast and carrying the cares and troubles of the world on their shoulders.

By their mid - late teens, they will have heard most of it all already and then I would let them digest the info and opinions here, although I would direct them as well with my own comments

If i had kids, yes with some restriction.

If I had children, I would only show them certain threads of interest, or print it out for them to read. My kids will be too busy performing outdoor manual labor to surf the net anyway. :fcactus:

There are definately some things on this forum that are "mature subject matter", but I'm not blinded by the illusion that I can actually censor these things from my hypothetical children. What they don't read here they'll see on TV or hear in the school yard. Skadi at least has people that would be, IMO, positive influences on children. :)

As a whole, I'm not too worried about what children are exposed to, with the exception of pornography as well as something that is sexually explicit or maybe senselessly violent. I'm not in favour of "sheltering" -though what is age appropriate should be taken into account for some things.

I count on my children being critical thinkers :D And I believe "sheltering" doesn't allow people to develop that skill, to a certain extent. Besides, if my kids turn out to be little lambs I will give them up for adoption -even if they are 17 when I find out they are sheeple. :eking

I sure would. I got into white nationalism at thirteen. I'm still considered a child under Australian law - I'm 17 years old. I think it'd be great if my child (supposing I had one) viewed this place - though I'd wish he/she was at least 13 years old (I would not introduce he/she into politics before then), it'd be great to go to such an open debating/discussion forum as this. Brain fertilizer :D

I said only under my direct supervision because I don't want these Mediterannean supremacists poisoning their mind. :D

Personally, I would let my kids. I think that they should form their own oppinion. I would just objectvely explain certain stuff, if needed.

If a child is old enough to ask a question, he is old enough for a straight answer.

If I had children I would let them go on here under my supervision but you know I am only 14 now so I have to wait a few years before I have my children :(

I certainly would not restrict their access to this site. I would, however, try to discourage them from spending too much time in front of a computer monitor. In adulthood, they would most likely be forced to do all too much of that!

I like the Guardians' training scheme laid out in Plato's Republic. Childhood is mainly for physical training and general discipline - as well as social skill development. (Child prodigies rarely turn out well.)

I imagine I would be a brutally honest father. I would probably, for example, explain the non-existence of Santa Claus and try to have my child laugh at the stupidity of the illusion.

I would rather my daughter spend most of her time outside playing in our garden with her friends and cousins. However, I'd rather her tune into Skadi forum than most anything on cable TV.
