If there is a dispute over the censorship decisions made by the mobile companies, then the BBFC decides whether websites should be 18 rated or not.returnofkings.com is a rather strident supporter of the men’s rights movement. It is outspoken and totally politically incorrect, but in a quick survey I didn’t spot anything that described or promoted sexual violence. There’s probably something somewhere, but the initial impression is dominated by the unPC language and ideas.

Issue

A mobile network operator contacted the BBFC for advice about the suitability of the website for people under 18, following a complaint from a member of the public that the site had been placed behind adult filters despite containing no material that in the complainant’s opinion would cause access to be restricted to adults only.

Adjudication

We noted that it was a news/blog site with sections containing various strong sexual descriptions, including descriptions and promotion of violent sex. We also found the website contained very strong language at a number of points. On that basis we were satisfied that the website contained material we would classify 18.
