“Mature”

WordPress has a new function: “Report as mature”. Appears just below “Report as spam”.

If you come across a blog which you believe to be primarily adult-related or too mature for a general audience, please let us know…

Nothing at all against the function, but am pondering the label. “Mature” therefore becomes a negative characteristic. Interesting shifting of semantic prosody; wonder if it will spread into wider use.
