Why do we have these ratings?
In an attempt to accommodate a wide audience, we have chosen to use a rating system that gives the site's visitors as much information as possible about an image, without becoming overly nit-picky about the types of content. This gives the visitor the ability to decide if they wish to view an image, as well as the ability to set filters if they have an account on the site.
