@jim Yes, I agree... My "favorite" solution so far has been to tell adults to take care and be aware what their kids do. But for one this is becoming increasingly difficult with kids using smartphones with internet access, it pushes people to install potentially flawed "filtering" software on those devices (which makes things even worse) and ... well, in most cases of the "real world" (buying cigaretts, buying alcohol, driving a car, ...) we do *of course* have age verification for reasons.
