I have to agree. We want youngsters to be involved in all aspects of the
KDE community, not just GCi. Kids will still join and just lie about being
16, but why make them do that?

I don't think we gain anything and lose an aspect of friendliness and
openness that we've always had. Many of our best contributors began before
age 16. I want that to continue -- and younger people are more likely to
use Matrix than some of us who are set in our IRC habits.
