I'm not easy in my mind about the hate concept. I can't think of any book I've ever read that embodies it and can only think of one that I've heard about. We have to tread carefully here.

That's very interesting, Monica. I didn't realize that. But again, I'd rather see that in the long synopsis. I might download to validate, or if I were a member, to read, a book with an interesting title, rated Adult, not minding sex or language, but I would get very upset it if were a hate-filled book--unless it were an intrinsic part of the plot and the bigots got their comeuppance. That's why I'd prefer to see such information in the long synopsis rather than a vague Adult rating.
