[SLED] the grids - Teen and Adult

The problem is how to divide two groups who must be divided without  
drawing a line. We all want a place where kids can go without adults  
posing a threat to them. And a place where adults can do adult things  
without offending kids. But we don't want a sharp line dividing the  
two, because we wants older kids (16-17) and younger adults (18) to  
be able to work together. One solution would be to have a small age  
overlap. Say, let 18 year olds onto both grids. I keep hearing  
mention of "laws" in the discussion on this topic. But what are the  
laws, really? Is it actually illegal for a 13 year old and an 18 year  
old to have contact with each other on the Internet? (Not a  
rhetorical question. I ask because I don't know.)
