[bksvol-discuss] Re: Adult rating

Right on!  and until 25 years of age, young kids should be protected from 
harm:  no going to war,  no XXX, no alcohol,  and of course no work: after 
all,  if they are not old enough to  decide what to protect themselves 
from and what to have fun with,  they should not be asked to contribute to 
society either.

Hi fellas:
 
   We can use the the labeling for adult content the music and movie 
industry has: PA Parental Advisory, E explicit language, S for sex, N for 
nudity. I am a member of a music club and before you buy they have these 
letters and a key for their meaning before you decide to buy it.
 
Guido I agree with you 100%, I read an article in Time magazine about kids 
and teens and the age for a full development of brain and body is 25 
years.
 
Very truly yours

I concur.  The term 'adult' is open to interpretations.  Someone may 
decide to flag the novels of Lawrence Sanders as 'adult' only because 
there is a lot of boozing in them.  Or someone may disagree with a 
particular religious view and flag another book as adult.  And what about 
the books of Stephen J. Gould on evolutionary biology?  I suspect that 
some people may want to flag those as 'adult' and limit their circulation. 

So,  let us just be specific on what the book contains and for the rest. 
. . caveat emptor!
Not to talk about the bizarre racist thriller novels by Andrew macDonald, 
like The Turner Diaries.  Just warn the viewer and let them decide if they 

are worth reading.
