You've got nothing to worry about. It has been explained already by Alice before, but I would just like to add a bit here. When 'mature content' tag is added because of a word or phrase you use, it does not mean there is anything wrong or vulgar about your post. Most of the users set their preference to view mature contents anyway. If they don't, they can turn it on any time.

I do not know. Perhaps someone tagged it to be a jerk. There are some people who do things like that.

Ah, well I just read Alice's posts above mine and see why it was triggered for mature content.

The tag is automatic and is triggered by certain words. I copied the sentence above (contributed by a participant in your discussion) that triggered the tag. No, you cannot remove it.

I think when he saw you he got "mature content" in his mind..lolz..Sad to say. theirs no way you can remove the tag. I think this is a bad features of mylot.. But not adding edit button.. Even for admin.. Because what if its been abuse by others.. Like just what happened in here.

I dont know what you can do. The other day i got a notice that one of my responces was deleted due to the discussion being deleted. I reply and asked why but got no answers. I dont respond to things i feel may get deleted. I could see nothing wrong. Its not the first time that happen either. Sometimes its like nobaody is listening in that office. Complaint and questions go unanswered.

I know the tags are rediculous. I tried to start a discussion one time abouta science fiction author who wrote the book that the movies Blade Runner, Total Recall, Majority Report, nd Through a Scanner Darkly were based on. The author's name is Philip K. Richard Except his last name is not Richard but a shorter form of the name which is slang for a male body part. My discussion was flagged BEFORE it got posted despite the fact that I had no vulgar intent and I was not allowed to post the discussion. I complained to MyLot but never heard anything. Ths is frustrating because it means youcan not refer to persons who have the same name as a first name. A prime example would be former President Nixon. There should be a way to appeal this.

it is due to some key-words.. it is not intentional. when certain words are entered into a post, it would be an automatically triggered by mylot software. and, it is nothing to worry. only those, who allow to visit the topics with mature content, will be able to see the contents. and, it is through the profile preferences that you can tweak the settings about viewing these topics. you cannot remove, once the tag appears. that is what I understand. don't worry. and enjoy the discussion.
