the content warning system was designed to be flexible and accommodate multiple use-case scenarios, including potentially harmful content but also spoilers for episode 47 of spongebob. there is such a thing as *overuse* imo, but not misuse per se.

it's weird that this has been such a discourse item when it has been called a spoiler system / spoilertext from the beginning iirc?? and there were accessibility concerns wrt rot13 but never anyone saying “oh you shouldn't've rot13'd that” as far as i remember. is this just an issue of branding / the fact that the toggle says “content warning”??

i thought the whole reason we switched away from calling things trigger warnings and started calling them content warnings was because it was a more flexible label and prevented this kind of discourse, smdh
