I was, the other day, Googling a bar in London and came across a review about it on a site called "World's Best Bars".
Fair enough, I clicked on the link and was confronted with a page asking me to verify that I was over 18 (by entering my date of birth) in order for me to to be able to be granted access to the site.
"You need to be of legal drinking age to enter our website."
Needless to say, I didn't waste my time, and simply moved on to another site.
On the assumption that the site was not in fact some cover for porn or something, precisely why should an under 18 year old not read a review about a bar?
Do those who make up these rules assume that the mere reference to alcohol will cause an under 18 year old to become addicted to booze?
For good measure, there is also a link to "drink aware" on the date of birth entry form.
