If you're screening your follow requests, it's probably not a good idea to reject or block someone just because their profile picture is empty.

There are many blind people on the Fediverse who don't use profile pictures. For example, the writer Robert Kingett at @blindscribe doesn't use one.

The most reliable way to screen accounts on here is just to read what they have posted, as this better reflects what kind of account they are.

@feditips @blindscribe Thanks much for posting this. I used to do this but stopped when I realized it wasn't any kind of actual indicator, and being visually disabled knowing people might not CHOOSE to have a profile pictures re-enforces the rightness of that assertion :)
