Parental Guidance Suggested

Did you know that blogs can be rated, just like movies? Head over to mingle2 if you want to rate your blog. I was somewhat disappointed to discover that I only achieved a PG: PARENTAL GUIDANCE SUGGESTED. SOME MATERIAL MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.

Apparently I achieved this shocking score because the censors over at mingle2 discovered two occurrences of the word "hell" and one of the word "poop" somewhere in the blog. Bloody hell -- is that all the shit they could find? Yikes, I guess that makes it four and two of the above plus two other baddies. I'm probably up to PG-13 already.

Anyway I'm pretty sure that hell is mentioned in the Bible more than twice so I guess the mingle2 nannies wouldn't want children reading the Bible without parental guidance.

As for poop? Dear gentle souls at mingle2, don't you know that this is one of the first words that kids learn? It is a pretty essential word when you're only 18 months old and need to tell Mommy that you need your diaper changed.

Which gives me the perfect excuse to post this photo of Cutest Granddaughter In The World.

What is your blog rated?

You are now rated PG-13 according to Mingle2:
* hell (5x)
* poop (3x)
* gun (2x)
* pain (1x)

Let's see if comments will make it worse:

"Hell is empty and all the devils are here."
William Shakespeare

"Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." ~James 3:5-6

I checked out Sailing Anarchy and they were rated G too. Go figure.

So I headed on over to the site, typed in my blog address and got a G rating. Ok, I'm not too suprised about that.
But my wife tried it with hers and got a G rating too which is suprising because she talks about all kinds of stuff like sexuality and hell, which would probably put it to at least PG. So I suspect that whatever system they use it must also determine the context of the words. That or its rubbish anyway.

BTW it is a good picture of a real cute looking girl.

Good segway for the photo.

PG13 eh, good thing you did not put up those nude laser racing photos...

Zen said...

Hmmmm, mine is "PG"
because of "Crap & Gun"

Mine's "G".

Kill, 1x.

It has to only be rating the main page, not the archives - I use the word "kill" a lot. There's what I did to a lot of plants at the beginning of my urban-gardener phase, then there's Kill of Dutch variety, (e.g., Arthur , Van Kull, Peeks-, Cats-, Fish-, etc...). Kill kill kill kill kill. Gosh, pretty bloodthirsty.

So...hey, I'm taking a dinghy sailing workshop this weekend and Joe Rouse is too busy renovating his house or basement or yacht or whatever that construction site was to do anything about it!

Any words of wisdom?

Besides "have fun" of course. I usually manage to do that!

PG for using Dead (x3) Hell (x2) and Crack (x1).

That'll teach me a lesson for those inner-city years I spent going to Goth clubs.

Well, I got a G, as I expected; "No bad words were found."

The interesting thing is that, probably even in the wake of that episode of the Wizards that I classified as R-rated, these folks probably wouldn't have been able to rate me worse than a PG. That's because they're looking only at individual words, and not at context.

I got a PG for "suck".

"Suck" is bad? For a blog about snakebites and vacuuming?
