Why people tag discussions as mature content when it is not?

I had started a discussion about chicken wings a while back and just noticed that someone tagged it as mature content..lol..I have noticed people do it in other discussions that have nothing to do with mature content. I just find this really funny.

Sometimes a persons discussion is tagged mature content because of a word someone else used. Such as the word bre*st. Even though this is a part of the body as well as a chicken part they consider it to be mature content either way. There are several words that have a double meaning to them that mylot considers to be of matire content.

I thought we did our own tagging? I haven't heard of autotagging until today! If your discussion was tagged mature content by mylot, then mylot certainly will only get less members! Take care.

You never know who is reading your discussion! It's a weird place sometimes. I feel as if mylot is the neighborhood restaurant of the discussion sites. It's got a general attitude, with a laid-back atmosphere. It's a place for the common person to have a voice.

Personally, I think it's because some people just want to make their discussions more easily found in the My Lot search engine. I guess if the discussion actually concerned mature content, then maybe it would be alright. Others just think it's cute. Others are just immature!
