IMDb tackled over birth dates

In The Wrap, Brent Lang & Sharon Waxman reveals that the Writers Guild of America, West is tackling on what could be seen as an ageism issue.
The Writers Guild of America, West, is leading an effort to convince the massive database -- used by virtually everyone in Hollywood and far beyond -- to permit people to remove their birth dates from the site.

"The Guild has a contract with IMDb to provide credits information and does not release information on age," Neal Sacharow, a spokesperson for the WGA, told TheWrap. "We have raised our concerns with IMDb about its listing of ages."

    Bloody good idea.
    About time it applied to all media except obituaries where it might - at last - be relevant.
    Ageless and nameless
