We have quite a few younger members hanging out here with us. In fact,
that's part of the reason we've bothered to appropriate the "rating system"
developed and utilized by the MPAA - not all of us are of age, and even
those of us who are may not want to read something that goes beyond a
That said, we realized tonight that we haven't exactly stressed the
importance of considering your *entire* post when stating a rating for the
reader's benefit. If your story is clean, but your headers look like Larry
Flynt suddenly developed Tourette's Syndrome all over them, then your
overall rating should reflect that.
Now, we're not movie censors here, so who knows exactly what delineates an
R rating from an NC-17? Not any of us. We do all possess common sense,
though. So, in order to protect everyone in the future, posts with ratings
that flagrantly disregard content such as language, violence, and sexuality
will be reviewed by the moderators. In other words, we'll put our heads
together and try to figure out how to proceed...and whether temporary
moderation is warranted.
Yes, we're serious.
And no, we're not fascists. ;)
As always, if there are any questions, please feel free to direct them our way.

I don't want to be a geek groupie. Though I'd like to go on record as
saying right now that I think the world needs more of those.
