what happened to CWing politics on mastodon?

@archangelic Who knows, seems to have faded much the same as CW'ing discourse?

There seems to be a fairly sizable passive push against CW use lately

@maloki ehhh, i should still get to consent to reading it when i want to.

@archangelic I wasn't defending it, but I have a feeling that's why right now.

@archangelic CW use seems to be fading with the latest waves of users. Hopefully when everything settles it will go back up.

@archangelic Personally: I find reading CW posts extremely irritating, and don't want to burden others with all the extra clicks.

If CWs weren't so frustrating to use, I might use them more: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

@ocdtrekkie that's really no excuse not to use them. mildly inconvenient is not the same as actively distressing.

@archangelic I can't be personally responsible for protecting each and every person's individual notions of distress. I totally get some of the more egregious cases off objectionable content, but just generic "politics"?

People are going to have a REALLY hard time avoiding politics on the Internet.

@ocdtrekkie it’s actually super easy to avoid politics on the internet by customizing your feed. And by the use of CWs. Just stop being an asshole and respect what folks ask for in regards to CWs. If you have actual OCD than you know how fucked shit can get when you’re triggered. And when you hold marginalized identities, politics can activate shit so fast

@Tehfraga Whose CW requests do I follow? Am I responsible for following requests for CWs from people I both don't follow and who don't follow me? Is there a place I am supposed to find the list of what to CW as of the current requests of all of the fediverse?
