I would think so, but then I can imagine being a librarian who is new to the
field, working in video for the first time, and being very surprised when
they get the first patron complaint.

I had problems when I got orders for THE PIANO TEACHER which we have
rated & unrated or as we refer to them regular & Blockbuster version
It is MY policy to send the UNRATED unless specified otherwise
Does this seem correct to most of you?
