UK smut overlord declares age checks should protect users' privates

It appear from reading their PDF that the BBFC is relying on people reporting none compliant websites, so I expect Mumsnet users will all be off searching for websites that haven't implemented the age verification checks to grass them up.

It does mentioned that this is only applying to commercial operations but by that do they mean pay per view sites? Or would a free to access website with a few banner ads be classed as a commercial operation as well and require age verification?

It does seem as the government want us to go back to the pre-internet era when the only pr0n you could see was what the BBFC say was ok and was about as erotic as a bucket of sand.
