Cindy Lou, I believe the accept actually comes up twice and it is the second one she is ignoring; pretty clever! Jill ----- Original Message ----- From: "Cindy Ray" <cindyray@xxxxxxxxx>

I thought in the questions that come up when you are accepting the
book that question came up and it gave some percentages, but maybe I'm
just misremembering.

Thanks, Shelly.  smile.  Is there a link anywhere on Bookshare that
lays this
out for us?  I agree with you personally that this book shouldn't be
marked as
adult content.

However, as I was used yesterday as the example for posting OT topics
when one
isn't supposed to, after having being told repeatedly by list members
since I
joined this list that it was fine to do so, I'm feeling a tad singed
around the
edges about what is acceptable and isn't.

I want to do this according to Bookshare's stated policy on what
defines adult
content, and I can't find one.  So I guess I'm asking if someone can
point me to
that policy, or post an email from the staff where this has been
answered
previously, so I do this correctly.  smile.

The volunteer agreement states at
http://www.bookshare.org/web/VolunteerAgreement.html

"Volunteer understands that there may be Content on the Web Site that
contains
language with profanity or obscenity that may not be appropriate for
individuals
who are under 18 years of age. If under 18, Volunteer and Volunteer's
parent or
guardian understand that there are certain Volunteer duties that
require
Volunteer to view content that has not yet been categorized, and that
Volunteer
may, in the process of processing Content, view Content that would be
in the
"Adult Content" category once it received its categorization."

That would seem to me to say that not just adult book store material
but certain
levels of profanity (not the simple "damn" or "hell" but the
"mother-f" words
etc., which this book contains), may be a reason for rating a book as
adult.

The way Bookshare defines it is

If you can buy it in an adult bookstore, or in the restricted
section of a
library then it is adult.

That is my philosophy, is why I didn't mark that book adult.
