Beggars belief.
It's utterly f---ing unbelievable isn't it?

You couldn't make it up really.

There are quite a few ridiculous instances like that in the published document so I couldn't take it seriously and, like you said, any policy change which results from such poorly conducted research should be legally challenged.

On the BBFC banned film The Bunny Game.

[due to the fragmented nature of
the film and the pervasiveness of the sexual violence, participants found it difficult to isolate
specific scenes for discussion, or suggest any to be cut. Indeed, participants were divided
into those who felt it should be released with an 18 classification in its entirety, or completely
banned. Those who would be happy to award the film an 18 rating judged that the minority of
people to whom it might cause harm was not large enough to justify a ban]


So basically a portion of their own test subjects didn't think the film should have been banned.

Continuing with The Bunny Game.

[Q: And do you think any of the scenes glamorised or sexualised
violence?
A: Yeah, a little bit.
Q: Which bits?
A: All of it. But because, well if you watch porn they sort of do that
don‟t they? They would tie them up and dog collars and stuff like
that, and yeah, it‟s sadomasochism isn‟t it? And so yeah. Yeah, I
don‟t find that … there‟s anything wrong with that
(Female, 41, Bristol)]


Clearly the film glamorised and sexualised violence but there's nothing wrong with that.

The best bit so far.

The nasty BBFC made them watch scenes from a Uwe Boll film. (Seed)

None of them recovered from that and now they all jump when they see caterpillars.

Whoops clanger time!

Murder Set Pieces.

[A few participants even suggested it could be rated 15 and thought it was only
an 18 because of the nudity. Participants did not have a problem with the level of nudity or
the violence. The only negative comments were that they found the music annoying and the
acting wasn’t very good]
