@gaeel i tried reading this yesterday to see their rationale for calling CW'd posts "inappropriate content", but there doesn't seem to be one

@eel It's in the abstract: "Mastodon,
a distribute online social network which is formed by communities that impose the rules of publication, and which allows its users to mark their posts inappropriate if they perceived them not suitable for the community they belong to."

Which really, it's just a complete misunderstanding of why that feature exists, and how people use it
