I get the impression some folks think that butts are there to like... personally attack them, as if I know what hellsite is and have control over how they display our content.

The woof.group content-warning norms are already a carefully-chosen compromise in deference to a fediverse which is--let's be honest--conservative beyond the wildest dreams of Anita Bryant. Of course local norms and personal expectations vary, and that's okay! What I don't know is how to handle those subculture boundaries

@aphyr they might choose to silence your instance, which might be the easiest option
another option would be for you to do something like toomanycooks.social did and auto-cw your stuff when it federates out

probably either that instance or that user should just silence y'all since you have different norms. and that's ok! I suggest reaching out to their admin for a chat

@t54r4n1 You know, I've considered that--it'd cost a fair bit of my own time and money in moving us to dedicated hosting and setting up a fork, but it is an option. OTOH, given our follower count we get surprisingly *few* of these complaints, and I'm of the opinion that encountering constant CWs is actually a bad user experience for several reasons.

@aphyr Why let someone else volunteer you to an unusual cost when there's an easier solution on their side that's free?
