along with the exhortations to new folks to use content warnings, I would like to exhort masto veterans to be patient with new users, and to *please* include explanations of common abbreviations so the new folks can get a handle on them. examples:
pol = politics
uspol = US politics
mh = mental health
tf = transformation
+/- signs = positive or negative modifiers, so "uspol +" would refer to a story about US politics that is actually good (for a change).
feel free to reply to this with other common-ish examples if you can think of them!
fellas don't you hate it when you see a beautiful woman and she seems really into you, smooshes your cheeks up and kisses you on your completely bald head but when you close your eyes and go in to seal the deal she sprays you with seltzer and you realize that she's in fact the very same rabbit that you came into these woods to hunt in the first place, merely wearing a dress and makeup
