List with No "Adult" Titles on It Still Being Blacklisted

It's already been well-established that the IMDb porn filter does not work: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/the_porn_filter_for_lists_does_not_work

However, this problem is unlike anything that I've experienced with the IMDb porn filter before.

Recently, I created a list of titles consisting entirely of animated TV series, none of them even remotely pornographic: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls074779977/

For a few days, this list showed up on the sides of pages, under "User Lists".  Now, however, the list has been blacklisted, the same way that lists with supposedly "pornographic" titles on them are.  NONE of the shows on this list are classified with the "Adult" genre.  Was the list blacklisted because it includes the word "Adults" in the title?  Because, by "adult", I was very obviously referring to stuff like The Simpsons and Futurama, NOT porn.  Again, everything on the list is an animated TV series, and there has never been a pornographic animated TV series (hentai is not aired on TV).

Why does this ridiculous porn filter for lists still exist?  And why are lists which contain NO pornographic titles on them still being blacklisted?

Hi Madotsuki_the_Dreamer -

Thanks for reporting this List issue, I was able to confirm that your List is not displaying with the other User Lists on the relevant title pages, and I have forwarded this issue to our technical staff to review.

When I hear any updates on the status of this issue I will post the information here.

Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it.

It would also be great if my other lists could be un-blacklisted, as none of them are lists of pornography.
