Just noticed that Conservapedia now places the following dire warning on its
front page:

*Minors under 16 years use this site.*

   - *Posting of obscenity here is punishable by up to 10 years in jail
   under 18 USC 1470 <http://www.conservapedia.com/18_USC_%C2%A7_1470>.
   *
   - *Vandalism is punishable up to 10 years in jail per 18 USC
1030<http://www.conservapedia.com/18_USC_%C2%A7_1030>.
   We will trace your IP address and give it to authorities if necessary.
   *

I was wondering if any legal experts (David?) would know if this is
enforcable?

(Not that I was thinking of posting obscene material, you understand!)

Minors under 16 from my kids' school regularly vandalise Wikipedia.

BTW I'll go with the aboriginal singing theory of origins of kangaroos.
Sounds much more sensible than that evilution rubbish!
