    HA! One third of the cause for the rating appears to be the occurrence (twice!) of the word “missionary”. Now that’s funny.

    I always knew there was something very subversive about calling myself a missionary for those two years.

    What the…

    Nine Moons is rated G?!!

    I am soo embarrassed. I don’t know how we’re going to live this down. I’m almost afraid to tell Rusty.

    cantinflas, how do you think *I* feel? Not only was I a missionary, but I write about baptisms for the dead, dressing the dead, and, I think, once about an idea being as dead as a doornail! Oh, how could I know what a threat I was being to little children! If I had only mentioned my cousin Julie Gay, you could hold me single-handedly responsible for this shocker!

    Actually, Ardis, I don’t think you’re responsible for any of this rating. It analyzes the text on the front page, which includes only snippets of each post. The culprit appears to be Adam Greenwood in almost every case.

    Now using the word “shocker” might put you right into an R rating, so go easy on that one.

    Parts of lds.org are rated R. The horror!!

    Hmmph. At least you got rated. I can’t get it to work on my site. Does that mean I’m off the chart?
