Worst Age-Verification System. EVER.

As part of my new life as an intrepid reporter for R18+ Games Australia, I check every few days on the classifications website for any new developments. As anyone who has checked the site would know, it employs the age-old CYA policy of age-checking before allowing access to the latest classification decisions. All well and good — I’m a good decade over 18, so “OK” is the obvious answer.

But what happens when you click “Cancel”? Are we redirected to the Disney channel?

Nope. You go to exactly the same page.

The Classification Board website allows minors to access supposedly restricted content, even if they explicitly request to be directed away from it. I wonder if I should report them to ACMA?
