About the old comments : it’s all right if you are 17yo, it is the age of majority for the wizards… Anyway, I find that this restriction is totally stupid. (But it is hard to explain this as English is not my mother tongue…) Clearly, the goal was to avoid troubles with groupies/“noisy children”/etc. But what about these “underage” fans who wrote excellent essays on the most known HP-Websites ? I would call that “adultism” (cf. Wikipedia). It is an arrogant posture taken by the adults who think that their opinion is more worthy than childrens’. It was nearly the one and only target public of the first book, no ?
