Yes I am completely for this change. ^^^This is the best explanation so far. As far as I'm concerned that's that.Kaylibayne wrote:I guess I'm the only person totally for thus change....and here is why:
1. R is 17+ and X is 18+. There is no reason that a room should have these ratings unless mature content is not a slight possibility but absolutely KNOWN to occur. For example, one of my rooms is R because I know there will be a lot of sexual talk as well as an increased amount of harsh language. My other rooms are PG because harsh language and slight sexual talk MIGHT happen.
2. Legal issues. As was mentioned previously, if a minor is exposed to something incredibly sexually oriented and it is reported UD can be held responsible, fined and/or arrested and the sites can go down, unless he shows he does have the proper precautions in place. This is one of the reasons SI was invite only, to prevent minors being exposed to such talk.
As a parent I will add that I would be disturbed if I knew my young preteen/teenage daughter was frequenting chatrooms where there are possible R or X rated discussions.
I think its a good precaution to take. It won't technically stop that sort of talk even if your room is "Pg-13 friendly." But for those of us that are uncomfortable with having "adult" conversations around minors, this is a nice feature.
