Question on Posting Guidelines

The posting guidelines say:

"MobileRead is intended to be a family-safe and work-safe website. Please post accordingly."

What does 'family-safe' and 'work-safe' mean in terms of what's acceptable on MR?

E.g. is 'swearing' ok? posting 'adult' material to the Upload section?

I think the terms might be open to a wide variety of interpretations, so some clarification on how they apply to MR would be helpful.
(I'm not looking to debate the definitions, just ensure I understand and respect them. )

Good question. Although folks here for the MOST part are fairly polite, civilized, etc....there IS an occasional 'potty mouth'. While this doesn't offend me, it sorta suprises me.

I believe that the general idea is that members should not post anything that they wouldn't want their boss or their mother to see on the screen.

So we would prefer not to see serious profanity.

About book uploads: it would be prudent to mention if the book is particularly controversial, so that members can make an informed choice about whether to download it.

We don't want to censor ideas, but we would prefer people to discuss them courteously. And we definitely don't want to see name-calling and other insults.

The mention of 'family safe' made me wonder if we should bear young children in mind; but it looks like we don't need to be quite that genteel.
