The CW system in Mastodon is really great! If you're new to it, you might be puzzled why people CW some things. Fear not! The internet police aren't here to ruin your fun and tell you you're bad.

They're for people who have related trauma, past or ongoing problems, or hard-to-explain reasons that they're really tired of having to explain over and over again.

Even if you don't understand it, please be courteous and CW your posts for things people ask you to.



I think people would understand CW better if it were renamed 'subject line' - much like emails (and good old usenet and even blogs) where people get to choose to open it or not.
