It seems like 2 people are in their 70's, so they say.
It's kinda strange, but I have that feeling, even though I'm 22 myself.
But luckily for me, many serious PvP'ers are college students. So we can all get along really well.
Especially in GW1 it almost felt like every GvG'er was still in high school in the beginning. Later obviously at university.
I'm not saying you can't have fun with 'older' people, but it feels strange talking about things that happen in college and what we do in the weekend. When those people are at home with their kids.
Maybe the reason for our difference experiences is a gender thing? Like a 50 year old man will talk differently to a guy and a girl? Idk, just a guess.

College studends and younger people will probably use more bad language as some older people. This is probably caused by the language used in movies and on tv. You will all agree that language evolves over time.
But the most important reason is that younger people don't get upset by anything. In GW1 all competitive PvP guilds consisted mainly of high school/college studends. And we trolled each other non-stop in Alliance chat, ingame chat, during and after PvP matches. Pointing out in horrible ways how they made mistakes and calling them shit.
This might look bad, but it was mostly harmless trolling. And it's fun to troll around in real life also, we do it all the time on my soccer team. But ingame I feel that the older community doesn't like it.
I don't know anyone my age that cares much one way or another about profanity. I can take it or leave it...I certainly curse enough. But it's not a big deal.
Strangely, I tend to prefer not playing with most younger people, because they're less mature, tend to think they know more than they do, and tend to be more insular in their thought processes. Naturally this is a broad generalization. There are a good number of younger people in my guild that fly in the face of everything I've just said but presumably they joined an older guild because they too don't like hanging out with younger people. lol
