People listen to these warnings? Hell, I was surfing porn at age 10. Some of that hentai goes pretty damn far though. Like loli-futa scat lol. Warnings for those should be followed. Violence and gore isn't so bad, since it's all drawn. Interwebs have dulled my emotions -_-

Those of us over age will prolly admit to reading it before, and those under age will prolly lie. Then again, this is the internet, so there'll be a disturbing level of admittedness.

Lol loli-futa-scat. I can take pretty much anything, ANYTHING, except scat. OH and perhaps the presence of extra body parts on characters, each of which is disproportionately engorged.
Scat is just wrong. I can't even walk the dog because of my aversion of excrement.
Loli futa yum

Ok, I never checked it, if it had a 18+ warning, so I've got really no idea if I watched 18+ material when I was underage or not I just wanted the stuff that I wanted( so I guess it is). Well, in my country they aren't so strict about those rules, it was normal to ignore 16+ warnings (even on school). O yeah, the gore violence and nutidity (with exception of sex) have the 16+ label. And vulgair language is 12+ rated and also allowed on normal television broadcasts (unlike the usual *peep* in the made in USA, and other countries that forbid vulgar language).

When their is hope, their is live.

Having an 18+ warning is basically a calling for people to read it. People don't tend to avoid stuff that have these type of warning, steading they'll just read it to see if it suit their taste. Think of it, a kid will most likely check it out due to curiosity then judge it from there.

Aethereal, my world.

I was already past 18 when I started reading manga... Where's the option for that? XD

But yeah, don't really pay attention to adult warnings save for when I come across the *ahem* more "exotic" stuff as That2ndGuy mentioned.

Yeah, just like a good chunk of existing yaoi fangirls, I was young when I got into yaoi. So I even bought a yaoi manga before I was actually allowed to. Felt awesome to get away with something I wasn't supposed to get. n__n

did the warning really stop people from getting inside the site? trust me, curiosity will win over your cautious thinking. people access the site because they knew what are they want to see. Hell, i'm not even 18 when i first access those kind of site. though i do like futa and lolis (both of them are massive plus of course), i don't particularly hate scat/gore unless the fore mentioned doujin/manga are featuring scat/gore to extreme level (even both are included, yuck!).

Who actually avoids adult material until they're 18. I hit and finished puberty looong before then, and after that point, you start getting needs that just aren't fulfilled by pg13 material

"It is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science."

I don't think I read any 18+ stuff as a teen. I don't really read 18+ stuff now (almost 23.) I read older teen stuff sometimes and some mature manga but I don't like porn, gore, or extreme violence. I would read stuff that wasn't aimed at me when i was younger i honestly wish i hadn't. :/

I actually filter out Yuri, Hentai, Yaoi, & Ecchi. (Though i do read ecchi and smut sometimes, but i'll avoid anything explicit.)

Guro not really, Scat a definite no. Everything else is workable most of the time.
But yes, Tags are so necessary when browsing. Except I find myself always previewing content that providers explicitly warn viewers that it may traumatize them forever. Curiosity killed the cat?

Adult warnings are necessary, because if your everyday twelve-year-old naruto-fan checks out a hentai not knowing what hentai actually means, or yaoi/yuri, heck, even shota or loli, it's not good at all.
A warning is there so you know: "Oh, I'm not supposed to read it. And there's a good reason for it" Sometimes you start reading a mature manga and can't stand it, but then you try it when you are older. And you start loving it. I'm the same.
But haha, I was still below 18 when I picked up my first Adult-Mangas. So who cares, underage kids should try slowly. First read some shounen/shoujo, then some mature, then adult, etc.
So kiddies, check out your genres. You don't want to pick up some yaoi and find out what's in there ^^

[Naruto can be replaced by any shounen manga. One Piece or Bleach, Psyren or something else, I don't care. The same with yaoi.]
