I'm sorry but if you use Mastodon posts to train systems for filtering inappropriate content you will lose all eye contact, alcohol, US politics, and Star Wars discussions from your platform...
(This is from the paper "Mastodon Content Warnings: Inappropriate Contents in a Microblogging Platform" published by the University of Milan)
@Gargron you say that like it's a bad thing
@Gargron and thank goodness for that! 😛
@Gargron I have more qualifications as a mastodon scientist than these goons
And the downside?
@Gargron Possibly a lot of mental health as well.
@rusty Definitely a lot of mental health posting.
@Gargron Serious question: Does the corpus contain the original CW text?
But I guess if question is "What kinds of things do Masto users put in CWs?", then it doesn't matter
@gargron Geez, they haven't understood why the CW is used.
@Gargron It's unbelievable as a normal process of cognition is made impossible by that wall my brain erects each time the words "policy", "Italy" and "social network" appear together.
@Gargron although I guess it would cut down on shitposts? I generally tag those
@Gargron don't forget catheter
@Gargron but will they keep all the jorts posts
@Gargron as if harassers here are cw'ing their bullying and hate speech!
@Gargron Unpleasant offline behaviors such as sexting.
UNPLEASANT OFFLINE BEHAVIORS, SUCH AS SEXTI-
