mature content option

Who else has their mature content option checked so it shows a message that says something to the effect that I have opted not to receive messages containing mature content? I know I started a subject or two of mature nature myself but I can't read all the posts. And sometimes I'm thankful I have that option though sometimes I'm curious to what was said but on the otherhand maybe not *LOL* But I do think some of the posts can be made so they are not censored if worded correctly.

I did at one point, but curiosity got the better of me. I discovered that many of the posts that say they contain mature content actually don't. Not sure who set the guidelines for what is considered mature content.. but they're definitely quite a bit off most of the time.

After I had discussions I couldn't access because of the mature content thing, I had mine set so I could see them. I did once protest that a discussion of mine had been labeled mature and got it taken off. Honestly, I can't think of anything that I might want to start a discussion about being considered mature...

It is all in the wording. Some words automatically set that tag on your discussion. Sometimes you aren't using them in that way either, such as a**...

I don't mind having the mature content option, mylot censers the wording and if I happen to move into a subject that is adult I know I can read my responses.

I do not want to see, hear or look at anything with mature content but I have referred to stupidity with words to correspond with stupid crime. Do not refer to the news or what meeting strange men and getting in their car can lead too. You get censored. To me, this is odd!

At first, when I signed up, the mature content option was something that I did not pay any attention to. I think that I thought that I would not really need something like that. However, I did learn that the mature content option can be triggered very easily. Which is understandable to be sure, but it can be annoying not to be able to go into your own topic. So, I have turned it on and most of the time, mature content is made by something that is said, but not meant in that exact tone. Of course, there is no way to design something that is smart enough to understand intent. So, I think about ninety five percent of the comments are inadvertent. Granted, there are a lot of topics that might be in...lets just say questionable taste and move on from that. I do agree that there can be some curiosity but perhaps we are better off not knowing a lot of time.
