Once more for the people in the back:
Put content warnings on your politics posts. I come to Mastodon specifically to avoid the horrible things in the news.
I don't care how urgently you want me to see it. In fact, adding a content warning will make me *more* likely to care, because it will give me time to brace myself.
@DialMforMara not content warning probably means you just used your one chance before being blocked or muted.
@DialMforMara this demand is completely reasonable and correct. Perhaps as well some requirement for newsbots, which do not carry CWs, is in order
CW meta, discourse
@DialMforMara I tend to unfollow most folks that post politics without CWs extensively. I really prefer the ability to engage with these things when I feel comfortable doing so.
@DialMforMara There is of course the other alternative -- of blocking those who demand CWs.
