I find it interesting how mastodon has terrible content filtering options compared to twitter.

the filtering model in this system resides totally on the blind faith that other users will use the "content warning" feature in a manner that satisfies your preferences, the failure rate of which scales up as more users use the network... and this is even worse compounded by the fact that most clients try to shove shove the instance and federated timelines in your face.

@0x1f415 You can mute words and phrases you don't want to see as well, which is just about the same as what Twitter offers.

@adamk678 twitter allows you to mute more than one phrase at a time, and set expiration times for these. unless I've missed something, mastodon only gives you one regex, which could work but is a pain to set up for multiple phrases.

@0x1f415 Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe you can do multiple phrases. You're right in pointing out no expiration timer or anything similar. Maybe something to make a PR about if someone hasn't already. I think the tools we have here are solid but there's certainly plenty of room for improvement.
