Being put on the "mature" blog list seems to have several effects on a blog. Not only are you no longer a featured blog/post (I thought that was all that happened), readers can't find you through tags, and they can't find you through search engines either. That's brutal. Basicly no new readership for the average Joe.
To make WordPress a more fair and friendly place for mature blogs I suggest the following:
Make it like over at YouTube where they have a page pop up warning of “mature” content, and if you’re still interested, they sign up and say “let me in” and boom, you’re in there.
make it a toggle switch in the dashboard, kind of like what Google has. If you don’t want your results to be filtered, you turn the filter off. It’s as easy as that.
Thank you for your time, and I hope your cooperation.
