I guess I should clarify what I said in earlier toots: We're asking you newbs to put cws in political toots not because it's etched in Mastodon dot social's rules, but because it's a social norm established by the community before you came along. Please respect our customs, we already have an idea of what we want this place to be
@plsburydoughboy I think that's an interesting debate, but it's difficult to define what exactly is a "political toot" right?
@Nautigsam no no no you dont have to overthink it. We just dont want to see everyone tweeting about bombing Syria on the timeline at the same time
@Nautigsam stuff like that, that's it
@plsburydoughboy okay I got it ;)
@plsburydoughboy noob question: what's cws?
@paulgb content warnings
@plsburydoughboy um what does cws mean? I will have a hard time remember it without context. we did pol: in a newsgroup and it was obvious.
@Silona content warnings
@plsburydoughboy Ah something more general. hmm yea I can see why that might not work as well if the community grows... hard to always know what is a problem as it becomes more diverse with all the new people (like me) but hopefully they can learn? See I normally do content warnings for tales of Sexual abuse and discrimination but not politics.
