Why? Because you've been browbeaten into using the system through
the threat of losing some viewers?

None of the sites I'm most involved with could be rated 0 0 0 0,
or at least if they can it's not obvious.
(Has the entire list of words banned by a iFilter, not to mention
my "controversial material collection" :-)
(Some of the reviews in e.g. http://dannyreviews.com/s/sex.html
would fail the language test, if nothing else. The site is 100%
(Contains the F word on a few pages, and torture and rape are
unfortunate realities in some of the places Oxfam CAA works.)
(Had some pretty grizzly anatomical stuff, though I think most of
that is now restricted access.)
Rating none of these sites is practical, even if I didn't have
ideological objections to using a brain-dead rating scheme designed
for conservative Western wowsers.
