I am going to disagree with you and say that the rules are absolutely clear on this.

For individual film releases the rule is:
Quote:
For DVDs with more than one rating shown (e.g. a DVD which includes an R and Unrated version), use the highest applicable rating with the following scale...

That rule does NOT apply to Box Sets.  We know this because, in the introduction, the rules say that "there are two special cases where the rules need clarifications.  Where you see the icons shown below, refer to the special instructions at the end of this document. These are titled Movie Box sets and TV Series on DVD."

Based on that, for Box Sets, we must refer to the Box Set special instructions:
Quote:
If the Box Set has a rating, use it in the profile. If it does not, use NR as the rating. Exception: If any disc in the set is rated Adult, list the set as Adult

So, based on that rule, the only time a Box Set gets a rating, other than NR, is if the set itself has a rating OR if one of the films is rated Adult.

Again, it seems pretty clear to me.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

Contribution is wrong. Should be NR unless the set itself is rated. From your description don't sound like it though.

So? I figured to post my question here rather than create a new one esp since it was related to what I wanted to know. In any case, the user resubmitted so no harm, no foul.
