Parental Guidance Suggested

There is a website that automatically rates blogs (and other websites too, I think) to see who they are suitable for.

It tells me that this site is rated PG – parental guidance suggested.

I think that  this is done by a simple vocabulary check, which noses out any language that is crude or disgusting. Apparently the word “torture” appears somewhere on the blog. This makes it unsuitable for children.

Yet in my experience, children are quite interested in torture. When I took school trips to Warwick Castle, the torture chamber was always the most popular part of the tour.

I suppose that by using the word “torture” three times in this post – no, it’s four times if you include that one – I’ve made the blog even less suitable for children.   I bet they still come looking for help with their Private Peaceful homework, though.
