Restricted and Prohibited Content

Mature Content

Mature Content is generally permitted on MQotD. Although MQotD is intended only for an adult audience, we recognize that viewers have different levels of sensitivity about certain types of content. To accommodate such viewers, postings of a "Mature" nature may not be posted by MQotD users.  Mature content is any content which may contain strong violence, strong profanity, highly disturbing scenes, explicit sexual dialogue or situations, nudity and/or graphic sexual content. (Keep in mind that certain content, including pornography, are not allowed anywhere on MQotD.) Your failure to comply with the prohibition against posting Mature content may result in removal of the content from MQotD without notice.
