More Masto etiquette

Content Warnings may be new to many of you

Try to think of them as being similar to the Subject line of an email

They're not censorship; they're not a punishment; they're not something that need only be applied in cases where the content is very offensive

They're a piece of meta-data that it is polite to provide and that you're expected to supply in certain cases to help others to decide whether/when to engage with your post


@socrates they also just help keep the timeline manageable, with how much longer posts can be on here than on twitter. especially if you use an instance that doesn't have dynamically resizing columns, a long post can fill up the entire screen, but with a CW it can be collapsed when you're done!
