It's actually a very good age validation tool. An authorization charge of $1 that refunds back on the card verifies that the person is above 18 and can legally accept terms of contracts, is OK to see certain content that may not be acceptable for minors (read: porn), or in the case of what I do accept packages from UPS or FedEx.

(Granted this entire argument goes out the window when I mention that my company accepts Paypal, but whatever.)
