Mmm. Ice cream.
But seriously though, parents should monitor what their kids watch/play. Otherwise, a kid might be influenced. And if a parent lets their kid watch the old sesame street, that is their own fault.

Parents aren't present 24/7 to monitor their children. In any case, internet is of much more concern than television, because TV is regulated by the government while internet is not.

This is quite sad. Today is too unsafe compared to forty years ago.

I recently read the new Guiness world records book, and it states that Sesame Street has won more Emmys than any other TV show.

Oh god! A kid might be influenced! And by something G-rated too! :rolleyes:

Honestly, I think that maybe a parent should be with the child when they watch the old episodes and point out things that don't fly today, but to claim it as adult-viewership only is just insulting.

Fah. Blasted social taboos. Nalyd is flummoxed by the censorship towards nudity or sex. Just can't wrap his head around it.

Gah, Nalyd's cousins have insanely protective parents. . . Won't even let them watch the freakin' Disney channel, the most chewed-up and spit-out TV out there. And they're 11 and 8.

No, Iffy. Authoritarianism is not good, despite what you may think. I mean, who would want their kid to be influenced in any way at all! It might disrupt Big Brother's control over the youth!

I suggest reading up on political ideologies. Hell, even Wikipedia will do.

You can just ignore us by now, Iffy. We're just touting our knowledge of different governmental systems. Nalyd can't remember the name of the one ruled by the judges.

The point of the warning is intended to help parents monitor what their kids are watching, since the old seasons are different from the current seasons and not all parents may be aware of that.

Eh. The warning is ridiculous, but it's really a no-win situation. If they put in the warning, people will complain. If they don't put in the warning, people will still complain.

Dikiyoba.

If your kid is young enough that you're seriously concerned that Sesame Street might be a bad influence on her, she's young enough that she really shouldn't be using the internet without constant supervision. You don't need to be around 24/7 to keep your computer switched off and password-protected when you're not using it, and are there really that many 5-year-olds sneaking off to public libraries?

Yeah, 'cuz forty years ago, it was totally safe for little girls to go into the homes of strange old men offering candy. :P

Old Man: Hey little girl, do you want some candy?
Little Girl: Sure!
Old Man: Well, come into my house for some!
40 minutes later.
Old Man: Stupid Girl! Now I have blood all over my bed!

And ya. Don't follow the stranger with the candy.
And 24/7 watching probably isn't something good to do, but you know, I'm not a people person.

And my parents trust me enough to use the internet without moderating me.

There are towns that are still that safe. I grew up in a place where no one ever locked thier doors at night or even when you went on vacation. You could leave you lawn mower in the front of the house and no one would steal it. It was commen for kids you didn't know to play in your yard, I would go join them in thier game of cops and robbers.

Basicly I am saying that there are places like that or that were like that at one time. These places they are far a few between today. We are overly cautious in what we do because others are more bold in what they do.

Winnemucca is a relatively safe town. If we don't lock the doors at night it's no big deal. However, some idiots deliberately run over all the snowmen I make. :(

Here, the biggest concern to a parent is for their children not to fall in with the wrong crowd. Winnemucca has a problem with illicit drugs and under-aged drinking.

Like they'd really tell you if they were.

Considering that dialogue you just wrote, I'd suggest removing your keyboard privileges. That or locking you in a closet for a few hours.

I'm torn. On one hand, I don't think I've been this disturbed by something for... quite a while. On the other hand, I know first-hand what it's like to say something incredibly stupid like that, and regret it in hindsight.

Either way, both hands agree that Iffervescence needs to edit that out.
