I was reminded of a query I had by a thread recently made by celery, which had to be quickly edited for content by SlowCookie. Is it actually okay to link to sections of this site where they might appear to be rated greater than PG13? I remember reading an article here a few months ago thinking it seemed a bit too explicit for younger readers, that I probably wouldn't get away with posting stuff like that on these forums, so what is the deal..? Is it okay to quote/ link to stuff on this site, or must we use *gasp* common sense on what is okay or not?

This whole site is considered to be PG13. We always love it when people cut and paste bits of our other articles and use them to answer questions. It shows that people are actually taking the time to read the articles that take so much time, energy and researching to write.

When linking/quoting from other websites, you have to be sure that the site you are linking/quoting from is not an 18+ site. Other than that, using *common sense* when you're posting will usually help you avoid yourself from having your posts edited by volunteers/staff.
