[bksvol-discuss] Re: Identifying and Flagging Adult Content

I wouldn't flag it

just put in the long synopsis "Some fowl language" or is it "strong 
language" that NLS uses.

But I only mark adult those that would be bought in an adult book store, 
think of Catcher in the Rye, and how it is required reading in most HS and 
it has that particular word every sentence.

My second validation has put me in a quandry as to, of all things, the
Adult Content flag.  It's a rather dry book by Charles McGregor Burns,
"Running Alone...." and discusses the tendency of modern presidents to
ignore their party organization.

There are, nonetheless, various quotations that include the dreaded
Effenheimer or F-bomb, as spoken by various politicians.  I'm sure the
software will flag it; but is it my job to override that determination?

There's nothing salacious in the book, and I'd feel stupid making a high
school student jump through extra hoops in order to read it.  What's a
validator to do?
