Why do you think it was one of your fellow users?
Because the complaint is specifically related to the classification of the film, rather than the content.
I believe that the film should have been classified as MA15+.
The Australian Classification Board classified Tropic Thunder on 8 August 2008 as MA15+ with consumer advice for “Strong violence, coarse language, drug and sexual references”. Although Network Ten modified the film from the cinematic release, these modifications were insufficient to permit the film to be accommodated within the M classification.
I therefore believe that Network Ten has breached the Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice 2010 (“the Code”) by incorrectly classifying the film.
I noticed similar style complaints in recent submissions to South Australian broadcasters. http://www.acma.gov....eport_2774.docx

I'm sure there's a few here who send classification complaints daily about The Project.
Since The Project was moved from 7pm to 6:30, the show goes from PG to "unclassified". Dodgy.
