I came across a question, which lead me to a user profile1. One thing stood out like a sore thumb:
I'm an .. and 12 year old boy
I immediately flagged the account via the "contact us" link, as the user has multiple Stack Exchange accounts, and could pose a serious concern2.
It occurs to me that I may not have taken the right action. Should I be bringing this up in a more global way, via the "contact us" link, or should I simply notify a site moderator?
1 I will sometimes do this to give me insight into the scope of the question; this will often point me to additional related questions being asked about the same thing, though I refrain from voting, at this point.
2 I can not find the explicit post about it, now, but Stack Exchange is not3 legally allowed to keep any data pertaining to "underage" kids; as such, we are required to state 'I am 13 or older', when we sign up. Penalties are quite severe, due to child protection laws.
3 By "not allowed", I mean that Stack Exchange chooses to refuse user accounts for users under the age limit, rather than adhere to the far more restrictive privacy laws. If anyone finds the actual meta post explaining this, I would be much obliged.
