In addition, you can not change it to not filter these things out. Even if you are OVER 18.
@staff, it was really great of you to think about the minors and make an effort to keep them safe, but it’s not working. It’s really doing the opposite. If you want ways to protect minors try asking the community, people have lots of great ideas and requests but nobody asked for this. change it back. It’s hurting people more than you think and was not a good idea in the first place.
@staff you need to remove the feature immediately, work on it some more, and roll it out again in the future with the option for ALL users (minors included) to turn it off.
