As far as LL is concerned, there is no PG, it is "moderate" ... at moderate sims, nudity is allowed in public, but no overt sexual activities or graphic depictions of a pornographic nature in public. However, "PG" if it is a term being used, is used by estate and venue owners and it is whatever they say it is, and the definition varies from place to place. When in doubt, ask for a definition of PG, including a list of "bad words." So while using the word "bum" may be frowned upon by a place where the staff chides you because it is "PG" it does not violate any LL sim ratings. however, that does not mean you will not get kicked out of such a place for using that word if they feel like kicking you out.

 Unless, of course, people are using PG to mean G rated. Then, no public nudity, nothing of a sexual nature anywhere on the sim.

So essentially what I am saying is that calling a place PG is utterly meaningless in terms of LL's TOS and community standards. PG stands for "parental guidance" and really just means not suitable for young children due to graphic depictions of violence, and perhaps some nudity and ribald humor.

General regions are areas where you should feel free to say and do things that you would be comfortable saying and doing in front of your grandmother or a grade school class

Yes, that's all pretty meaningless, but I don't see it's a huge issue since it's hardly as if SL is short of decent clubs on M and A land.

Just to add that you cannot AR any landowner for ejecting or banning you or enforcing any rules they choose to enforce as long as the rule does not violate the TOS.  They pay for the land and what they say goes.  A land owner can eject and ban you for any reason they choose, or none at all, even if the land is open to the public.

Think of it in terms of your own home.  You set the rules there and can enforce them as long as its within the law.  If you have an open house and a visitor does something you find objectionable, even if no one else does, you can tell him to leave and if they refuse you can have them ejected from the premise and lock the door behind them.  They can't then run to the police and complain about it without being told they have no leg to stand on.
