This rating sounds about right

This one’s been floating around ScienceBlogs and the blogosphere in general; so I thought, what the hell? (Oh, wait, did my use of the word “hell” affect my rating?) In any case, this sounds about right:

You’ll be happy to know that I don’t really plan on trying to “evolve” to rate a PG-13 or R rating. I really see no need, although sometimes the comments probably earn such ratings. On the other hand, I won’t shy away from “adult” content if I consider it sufficiently important that I want to blog about it.

    Interestingly, several of your EneMan posts (like this one ) are G rated.
    Unfortunately, some of your breast cancer posts (here) are rated NC-17.

    Was it the implied slur to Oklahomans and Californians in the bc posts that bumped their ratings up?

    Mentioning death and danger enough times will jack your rating up to NC-17, too, without any sexy stuff at all. Even if the danger is all in Alexander Hamilton quotes about the government…

    AnnR, I’m not going back to the rating site again, but I believe it was 46 mentions of breast and 1 mention of death that got the BC article an NC-17.

    I got a NC-17. Too much knife and rectum, I think.
