@bgcarlisle I get it. But I think intention is always context department and subjective. For example I don't consider tooting about #Privacy, #Stallman, #Assange, or #Socialism toxic, so I don't CW it not because of my insensitivity, but because I personally don't consider CWs aesthetically pretty.

But I do get that having a rant, or an argument should go under a CW. I just don't think it should be overused too much :-)

@mareklach @bgcarlisle agree. Sometimes using a CW might help have better toots, others are just a hell to follow the conversation. It's clicking twice so you get what are people talking about and tires me.

I think it should be used more like a TL;DR or a spoiler alert than anything else IMO.

@mareklach@mastodon.xyz @bgcarlisle@scholar.social that said, you can perfectly talk about politics under a CW. Just put the TL;DR before and then, talk about it. Example: Spanish government sucks Show more

Federated microblogging for academics

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
