U know, all, I think a major problem here is that the discussions on
both the adult & rudeness thread revolves around shades of gray.
Obviously, if a book is available in an adult bookstore, it's adult.

adult content to 1 may not seem so to another.

Perhaps understanding that most of the time we're dealing in grey
areas might help folks tone down responses just a bit & also might
help folks to give a little info as to why they rated a particular
book adult or no. Just a piece of my mind, which, arguably, I can't
