Question Marginalization of young polys

A comment was made in another thread that I really think deserves some sort of discussion.

The statement was made that young polys are being marginalized, and that new communities (the TNG networks, http://www.cpn-tng.org/wiki/ ) are being formed to cater to this age group.

So I guess the question is - how do people feel that young polys are being marginalised in the general poly community? What actions are being taken or ignored that makes them feel excluded and not able to be a part of the larger community?

My preference would be to make sure that polys of all ages are included in the general community and understanding what the issues are might help everyone become more aware and inclusive. I think we can all learn from this.

So if you are in the demographic (18-35 years old) could you talk a little about whether you feel marginalized in the general community and, if so, how?
