Should This Concern Me?

I have seen a number of blogs with ratings recently, and decided to see what mine is.

Online Dating
This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:

* bitch (2x)
* piss (1x)

Amazing. I have Angry Black Bitch and Bitch PhD in my blogroll, and list The Great El Paso Piss Off of 1955 in my best personal writings list, and they show up in my blog rating.

Do you suppose people go looking for blogs by their rating? That having a PG rating I will attract or repel readers? Does it mean anything at all?

Should I write a few more moderate potty words somewhere and start attracting a more jaded crowd? Should I try for a G rating and somehow use euphemisms more often?

Should I care? Or, should I take the track that feels right today and be amused?

I have the same two bitches in my blogroll, but somehow they didn't pick it up...I tried adding some swear words, and still I got rated G. How BORING!

As a matter of fact, I used the f word yesterday to describe our stupid president, and I just tried, and STILL got a G rating. They suck.

Just ignore that ratings crap. (oops,I said crap)

I am enjoying your lovely blog every day. Don't change a thing!

I am sure people like to shock with the names on blogs and using "potty" words. Personally I like your blog there are well written.

I'm PG as well for the words "dick" (used twice, almost certainly as a man's name) and "murder" (used once). Admittedly I have changed the B of BitchPhD to a *.

So if I discuss the Vice President some more, or maybe some news stories, I should be able to bring my rating up to an R? I can only imagine the depths of dullness one must have to get a G.

No bad words - I'm rated *G* .

Glad the blog police won't be after me!

I like your blog as it is and was disappointed to find mine was G and that only because of using rape once... which makes me wonder what would it have been without that one reference to rape? maybe snow white? *s* I am thinking I need to spice things up a little!

I got a PG-13 for death (4), abortion (2) and sex (1). I may very well be the most boring PG-13 on earth.

I got a g-rating. Darn! I need to trash it up a bit. But really, that's silly to rate a blog on just it's words. How they are used is more important.

I got a PG rating for "murder" and "crack." Those don't sound so bad to me. That rating thingie is goofy.
