"Extreme content " flags on writing are generally reserved for anything of graphic nature, be it sexual, violence, descriptive gore, etc.--basically anything that you (in general "you", not just you, personally ) would not recommend that a child or anyone of the age which requires parental consent, to be reading. Also those who may be faint of heart, regardless of age.

We do have such a population of people who visit this site, and while we cannot control who is able to read, what, extreme content is our way of covering legal aspects that may apply to certain readers .

If a piece of writing is such that it really wouldn't be a big issue if a child or very sensitive person were to read it, then it really doesn't need a content warning.  There will invariably be differing opinions on what is interpreted as "extreme", but if you run it through the filter of: will this give someone nightmares, or is this X-rated, or do I want my 12 year old, reading this, etc? Then that is the standard by which flagging or not flagging poems is determined.

Some readers do indeed, avoid the writes that are flagged extreme, so you could actually be losing a reader-base by having something notated as such, that really isn't in line with the aforementioned examples of what should be flagged.

We can flag poems extreme and not extreme according to the content of the write. If it is mild and can be read by people below 18 years of age it is deemed not extreme so we will flag your poem, as 'not extreme.' Extreme is usually graphic details of sex and writes on killings, suicides, murders and the likes. Language are also taken into considerations. As for illustrations or multimedia we will moderate hardcore pornography as well as photos of such acts.
Other than that, labels of extreme will be removed.

dontcha guidelines say show some courtesy? at least ask the user before you touch his work- 'course no need to ask if the content is abusive to someone else obviously. if it is not violating anyone a believe a courtesy counsultation is reasonable and fair. this is not DPRK is it?

Yes they are the rulers of the universe! It's kinda like accept authority or go to some other publishing site these days... tho I do remember the days where it was a free universe but alas no more... One thing this decade brought us was the right to be offended and well that's rather dumb! Taking offense is a choice! You're in Jail dudes, do as you're told!

Flagging or unflagging policy of Extreme Content has always been here. Its not a new regulation.

That's what you do...report your poem extreme content, but if it is not extreme, its unflagged anyway.

Anyway, its good to hear all your feedback on this matter. It gives us an insight of what you think and want.

years ago on the british arts show there was this piece of art that sparked much debate that whether that should even be allowed as the piece was just a written description of a pornographic movie..no pix no vids just writing on a wall  in red letters descrbing porn.

Its always commendable for all of us to sit back and listen, sometimes, walker.
Umm, a phonographic note might be a tad iffy. :)
