How about an encyclopedia? Anywhere?
Are you suggesting a rating system for an encyclopedia?
I'm suggesting that:
Ratings are different from censorship.
Actually, it's a matter of perspective if you consider that. If you read the
history Censorship in United States, it has an entire section about Film
censorship, also of relevance might be the MPAA crticism section  or
Tipper gore led Parent's Music resource center . My question was, has
there been an instance of an encyclopedia being censored or even rated?
Sometimes, ratings can be used to create
Often, ratings do just that - rate.
They actually restrict access, those ratings limit who can see a certain
movie, depending upon the classification. Again, it is a matter of
No. It's a matter of fact. Ratings can sometimes lead to censorship,
often don't, and definitely do not have to. For film. And the same logic
can apply here on Wikipedia or with any other kind of media. Wikipedia
already has extensive internal and external quality ratings; this does
not mean that stubs are being censored.
