Hello this is Chris
I am NOT train to say that censorship needs to be done I am just asking how
else would the site and the software that operates that the site no no to
block adult content I know that there is a checkbox under your account if
you are a member when you're under 18 that box has to be checked by default

ship any questions please feel free to ask or to come Int.

If you are into censorship and depriving people of making the free choice
to read whatever they want to read based on an arbitrary matter of status
then I suppose you would check that box in order to discriminate against
people under the age of eighteen. That would keep them from downloading or
even seeing that the book exists on the site. As an opponent of censorship
and an advocate of the freedom to read myself I would advise never checking
that box.

I am asking a question how does D adult content filter really work if it
works based on that box being checked then if thats not checked wouldn't
that allow I child under 18 to be able to download it seems like that it
would make sense to check that box if that's the only way that it would
know to not show that result I hope I made sense hair and everyone have a
wonderful day

Hi Russ,

Then I doubt it should be marked adult content. Just make a note about
the contents in the synopsis so people can make their own judgments.

Hi Russ,

Would you find that book in the library on the shelves? If so, it’s
probably not adult content. Adult content is for only very, very graphic
situations. I’ve actually only once marked a book adult content, and that
was a biography on serial killers with a lot of specific details about the
crimes. I do definitely encourage you to note that anything you think is
important in the synopsis that will give people a sense of what to expect
in the book, just as your wrote it below. You can then let the reader
decide for him or herself whether or not the book is for them.

I scanned a book that has Some strong language and some descriptions of
sex. Should I include this as part of the book discription along with
checking the checkbox for adult content?
