Can people just shut up about Ash's age already?

All those Youtube comments on XY anime videos are really annoying. I can see the complaints that Satoshi is the star of the series again or that the Rocket gang still stalk Satoshi and co. (although their attempts to catch Pikachu became somewhat infrequent recently), at least those are legitimate complains, IMO. But comments like "Shouldn't Ash be, like, 27 by now?" just really irritate me.
If those people had a modicum of common sense, they would internalize the fact that Satoshi will stay ten until the anime franchise ends, especially since they know that some characters in a series (animated or live action) stay the same age regardless of what happens in the show they are in. But those people don't.
I'm guessing even in the 2017 or so when the XY anime ends and the Gen VII anime begins, those same people will probably expect/want Ash to be 30. Which is really insane and disturbing.
