Re: Age Verification

Requiring a credit card for age verification is surely discriminatory to those without credit cards.

It's perfectly possible to go through life without a credit card (yes it gives you more protection than a debit card on purchases, but if you make very few card purchases and they are very small value then no "must have" need for that advantage)

Plus, given the lamentable history of web site security, why would anyone want to give card detail (of any sort) for age verification (and as has been said already, could be stolen card number & so no real proof of id)
