    I've just had it recommend Screamers 2 : The Hunting (cert 18), Kill Switch (cert 18) and The Heartbreak Kid (cert 18). This could provide hours of pointless entertainment!

    Tinkerbell looks triuly shocked!

    *won't someone think of the children* etc.

    I thoughts children were defined as being people who haven't yet passed puberty? 15 probably too old for that.

    Apologies from LOVEFiLM

    All at LOVEFiLM are sorry if this caused any offence and would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention. This has happened due to a technical error with our product information feed and we have fixed the issue as of this morning and now only children's titles will be seen on this page.

    Again, apologies for any offence and we can assure you that this was not a deliberate act.

    Good film, but not even a child could be satisfied with the lack of explanatory ending..

    @Jason Norris

    Don't spoil our fun, we really wanted this to be a deliberate act of subversion!

    But well done for the rapid apology, anyway.

    >> I thoughts children were defined as being people who haven't yet passed puberty? 15 probably too old for that.

    I thought children were defined as those who have (or at some point have had) parents. Okay, it is typically take to mean under 18 or even under 16, but I certainly I don't remember there being a pre-pubescent requirement.

    I always thought...

    Tinkerbell was a bit of a kinky freak. <insert 70's porn sound track here>

    None of which are so devastating

    in comparision to their sixth suggestion, a mind-scarring Frida "monobrow" Kahlo biopic.

    Never mind about ToysRus...

    What about El Reg's new TD2YDT* tech? I refer, of course to the Bravissimo ads that have started appearing on any remotely Bulgarian AB related story. There am I working up a rightious head of steam over illicit plod HD sizeure and up at the top of the page - NORBERTS!!! - <Homer> Mmmmmm, Norberts...</Homer> Keep it up, it's the geek dreamtime, IT and large breasted ladies with their shirts off. So one hand for pizza, one for the mouse, one for the...damm!

    Cheers, Steve

    well, it depends what context you're talking about. 18 or under is the legal context, but biologically, I thought there were three stages that a human could be in, infancy, childhood and adulthood. adulthood starts at puberty, therefore that's when childhood ends.

    I think :)

    From what I hear in America...

    on the current state of parliament, perhaps "The Devils Whore" might qualify as some kind of civics curricullum for the little tykes?

    Where are the women?

    Following Steve's comments, its occured to me that I don't recall seeing any posts by an obviously female character on any of the El reg stories I read, or am I a little blind?

    Certainly haven't seen Paris...

    RE: Where are the women?

    They are around - I remember being shocked and upset when they crept out on a story about Della site.

    They are mostly lurkers - so like most women, even the IT breed will wait for you to hang yourself with a comment before they put the boot in! :)

    Wonder where the dominatrix is these days... Sarah??

    Lurking women

    We often choose neutral or male monikers so as not to engender (heh) chauvinist or sexist replies from those who confuse personal attacks with debate.
