What The Fuck?

Filed under: Blogs,Dating — by teofilo @ 4:36 pm

Yglesias’s blog may be PG-13 according to this dating site, but mine is apparently G.  I’m skeptical of the validity of these ratings.  I also signed up for the site (even though there’s nothing particularly special about it), but there don’t seem to be any other people in my area on it.



  1. Unfogged is rated NC-17. What’s more interesting to me are the words they use to determine the rating. Apparently “gay” and “abortion” are warning flags. Hmmmmm.

  2. Woo! I’m rated R. Yeah, boy. (Apparently the word “crap” was a factor in pushing me over the edge.)

  3. Did you read my comment on Yglesias’s post (no reason you should have, but it might have happened)? There are references to anal assault on my front page, and it got a PG. It’s operating according to an extremely stupid word list heuristic.

  4. I hadn’t seen your comment, as I generally don’t read the comments there, but I did just look at it now. The heuristic is definitely quite stupid.

  6. I’m proud of our good, respectable NC-17!
