If that's the case then the standard "Are you 18 or over?" should be enough to stop people from accidentally browsing their site. Why need anything more than that? Why not educate kids and tell them that this warning means there is adult content within?

Anything more than that means he wants to just outright prevent access (as they've already tried) and there's more to it than the typical "think of the children" bologna.

"a teenage son cannot shoot himself if he suddenly decides life is hopeless"
This really pisses me off. It's never a case of "Oh. I don't know what to do today. Guess I'll kill myself."
There are signs. There are always signs. "They're hard to see." people say. "How was I supposed to know?"

These researchers should worry more about identifying the causes and helping people with suicidal tendencies instead of trying to baby proof the world. Of course someone might feel regret mid-jump. You're not supposed to want to kill yourself. It isn't a natural state. A better public understanding of mental health would do worlds more than putting up a couple fences.
