Shouldn't properly labeling hardcore pornography be a priority?

"Sexy Magical Girl" is probably THE MOST violent and explicit hard-core pornographic anime ever made. In fact, Episode 5 was considered "too extreme" to un-censor so just the first 4 episodes are available in an un-censored version.

ANN's page for this OAV has listed the objectionable content as "NONE", despite the fact that a number of people have flagged it for correction.

Someone should be paying more close attention to this kind of thing.

I submitted the inital error report for that. It just takes a long time for error reports to get processed, and it hasn't been longer than normal on this one, so there isn't any reason to get upset that it hasn't been dealt with yet. I assume that the error reports get taken care of in the order submitted (except for the ones that people are uncertain about how to deal with), so this one would eventually make its way to the top of the queue. Now that you've made this topic I assume it will be fixed sooner though.

Also, the same thing happened with Pigeon Blood (which I think actually has more extreme content than Sexy Magical Girl). Might someone be intentionally mislabelling these? If it is the same user who labeled both of those as having no objectionable content, then probably they should be banned from submitting more information.

This is a strange case. After a little investigation, it turned out a series of unfortunate coincidences caused the problem.

Records show I personally added genre "erotica" back in 2006; this would add "pornography" in "Objectionable contents" automatically. A few years later, "Objectionable contents" became a field that could be submitted by any user, and an user submitted "Pornography" in 2010. Until then, no problem at all.

However, later the user caused some other troubles, causing his past submissions removed. This left a "blank space" for another user submitting "None" in May 2013. The rest is what mugz saw.

Right now there are 15 error reports on "Objectionable contents"; I'm dealing with them right now as I type. I'll keep you updated after finishing them off (UPDATE: All fixed).

And yes, from now on any user calling a porn "suitable for all ages" will be banned.

I was afraid I knew who you mean and I was right. That mess was impossible to put right manually and it won't be the last time it comes back to bite me.
