    It's a non starter I think - just crap vote grabbing using the often touted ' think of the children ' argument.

    All the industry people are going er doh, and some of the kids pressure groups. How exactly putting a age rating on web sites will protect children, and what exactly it is that might harm them eludes me totally.

    I saw Jaws, an 18, when I was 12 - we wanted to see it just because it was an 18 cert. Put a 18 cert on a web site and kids will flock to it.

    What happened to that old fashioned notion that parents should look after thier children - I am an adult, and the internet is made by adults for adults. Cant we just ban all children from using it - that seems best to me.
