To verify my age, apparently I was sent an email but lord knows what Yahoo's done with it, bloody mobile yahoo is a hateful thing anyway.

Thing is I don't understand why I mean if you've used a credit card to order something and it turns out you nicked dad's card isn't it the parents responsibility for a child getting hold of a knife not the retailer who sold it in good faith via a payment method that is available only to those over 18?

I don't see the police marching off round to Ikea and confiscating all their designer knife blocks because mummy left it out on the kitchen side and little timmy nicked one and took it to school with him :S

Kids as young as 12 can have debit cards these days so age verification has to be done.

The world is changing too fast for me "sigh" seems i'm old school, kids should be "watched" by parents more, not left to their own devises!
debit cards for kids!!, hummm, ok but only if the parents keep an approved amount to buy say school lunchs , and stuff like that

Yea, even with the firewall of age verification, you'll still get irresponsible parents buying their children swords and knifes, but its the only way to get around the legislation and bureaucracy, and if your a genuine collector its not going to harm to scanning your passport :mrgreen:

Bloody kids they need to learn skills for life like how to sharpen a stick and make a catapult out of a coat hanger and mums knicker elastic, I miss my catapult and all the mini ones made out of match sticks, paper clips and bound with hair and glue, my mum allways chucked em in the bin when she found one.

Then the kids would be smarter than their teachers of today.
Sad commentary, but true.
