In a few of the groups I'm in here, I see people mark *adult* in the titles of some of their posts. I never really thought about it before... but that doesn't make much sense to me. This is a mom website. I realize a lot of the moms on here are young (technically underage), but in terms of talking about sex and things like that, I would think they're just as adult as anyone who's legal. So really, what's the point of marking something adult if we're all technically adults, in that sense?
Anyone agree? Disagree? Why?

This is why. Some people don't want to hear about anyone else's sex life.

The problem with TMI is that everyone has different levels of what they consider "over sharing". We still use TMI but We had to switch to "adult content" on those posts of sexual content at the request of some moms. Some Moms in my group are single and abstinent and do not want to accidentally read about that sort of thing when they are trying to be good.
Swearing isn't an issue because it's not necessary for expressing yourself in conversation and not allowed.
