I'll revise my position based on Aphaia's comment below:
"I think that being at least the age of majority in their country of
residence is important".

Checkusers are in a somewhat unique position to cause irreversible

such they should be old enough to assume legal responsibility for
their actions.

Just be glad that I'm not also suggesting that checkusers be insured. ;)
