Guess I Gotta Clean Up My Act...

Online Dating

Mingle2 - Online Dating

I quote:

This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
ass (4x)
dead (3x)
death (2x)
screwing (1x)

Seems rather arbitrary to me, but what the Hell. Who'd thunk I'd be so on about death and dying, eh? Screw the other stuff...

Hat tip: The Thunder Run


  1. LOL! I'm totally rated G. I have only Hell (1x).

  2. Too funny! I'm rated G. I have only the word "crack" used once. It must have been the story about the man whose pants would not stay up. Surely, I have said "hell" at least once, or maybe "die" or "death". Doesn't "pissed off" count for something?

  3. I'm rated G also. I didn't have any bad words found, though I'm sure I've spoken of death before.

  4. NC-17 here.

    I'm probably biased, but it seems to me this device is so overly-sensitive as to be practically useless. As I understand it, the word "gun" pushes you further toward the deep end of the pool. George Carlin's seven dirty words, from what I could see, have no additional effect beyond words that imply the same things...like "rape" or "sex."

    I ran the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler through the filter just for fun. He's adult material, of course, but what was a big surprise was what kind of material made the algorithm turn three shades of red and suck in it's breath. www.nicedoggie.net for those who would like to try it.

    I like the concept though. Yipeekaiyay, wiseguy.

  5. Guess I gotta block my kids from reading you. LOL! (FWIW, they don't read you. They are too into Disney.com and other stuff that goes thru my approval).

  6. I'm really feeling put upon! Now I (sorta) know how movie producers feel when their magnum opus gets an "R" rating...

    So I ran a few of my favorite potty-mouth lefty blogs through the wringer, and Firedoglake gets a PG-13, Shakespeare's Sister is an "R," and Kos gets an "R." Looks like I'm no better (or worse, Thank God) than your typical f-bombing lefty.

    I'm with Morgan...the algorithm is pretty much useless.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
