I was hanging out over at Gillian's Gillianic Tendencies blog and was amused by the following post: Not that arbitrary tests and ratings by websites looking for free advertising really mean anything
Seems she had stumbled upon a website page at Mingle2 that will rate your blog/website according to movie-rating guidelines...or something like that.
Gillian's blog rated "R" due to 5 cheeky words. Edgy girl, that Gillian!
Grand Stream Dreams - Family Friendly
So I bit and went on to put my main blog page in the tester:
Ahh! A family-friendly blog. Just what I wanted to find.
But then I surmised that it was only checking just the posts displayed on the main page.
What would happen if I put them all in?
