When I first started using IMBd it was for the parent guide which prided itself on presenting objective raw data, allowing parents to interpret for themselves whether the movie is suitable for their children or not.  It has become a common occurrence to see commentators subjectively describe gore and violence as 'not too bad'  and frightening scenes as 'relatively mild'.  I would like to see some moderation of peoples comments to ensure just the plain info is shared and not the commentators interpretation.

the Parents Guide:
The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.

Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

If you like you could ask help desk to grant you the ability to edit it, send it in and have the staff screen your take on the guide being submitted
