Content Warnings may be new to many of you
Try to think of them as being similar to the Subject line of an email
They're not censorship; they're not a punishment; they're not something that need only be applied in cases where the content is very offensive
They're a piece of meta-data that it is polite to provide and that you're expected to supply in certain cases to help others to decide whether/when to engage with your post
This may raise the question, So when should I CW a post?
On scholar.social, we have a list of things where CW's are required: https://scholar.social/about/more
But beyond that, if you see people asking for CW's on a particular subject, add them! It costs you almost nothing and it can be very helpful for maintaining the kind of space we want here
