Sounds as if LL might merge the Teen grid with the main grid. That would solve the "unable to make new account" problem, anyway. I'm not particularly opposed - I've had underage friends who were well in control of their own well-being and weren't interested in putting themselves at risk, but I don't have children - what do I know?
The argument has always been that rule-breakers join SL anyway, and young people who obey rules join TeenSL, but I think that's forgetting the parents. One would imagine teens on the teen grid have parents who wouldn't want them on the main grid; I'd guess lots of the TSL teens have secret main grid accounts. I don't consider that bad of them - I'd've done the same thing. What teens do is perfectly understandable, but over-18ers are hoping they aren't curtailed in their freedoms or put at risk in some way. I don't do anything in SL that would involve removing so much as my hat, but the seediness is not as much in pixel bashing or (as it was called once) hot graphic-on-graphic action as it is in picking up attitudes and joining networks. Like real life, SL has all manner of things going on and all types of people inhabiting it, and the naive, not necessarily the young, may need to step lightly to avoid being preyed upon. Or maybe (as I've said before) it's just good to learn expensive lessons in SL rather than in RL.
If they are finished with it can I have it for my Geezer Grid now?

I'm with you - I'm not fussed if youffs join the grid. Like the people already there, I'll avoid the tosspots and embrace the nice ones. By embrace I don't mean... never mind... look, just forget I said that ok? I meant, well not that. Blimey.
