The Writers Guild of America, West, is arguing with website IMDb.com about posting ages in profiles on the massive database because they think it could interfere with potential employment because of Hollywood ageism.
But IMDb isn't too keen on the idea. A spokesman for the website says:
"IMDb is committed to being the most comprehensive source of film, TV and celebrity information. Customers of IMDb trust that when they use our website, they are receiving comprehensive and accurate biographical information. When we are made aware of information that can be verified as inaccurate, we remove from IMDb, as nothing is more important to us than customer trust."
We kinda see their point, too — it's a tough call!
What do U think?
