This “safe mode” thingy...
Does anyone who follows me actually have it turned on?
Because that’s really the only reason I can see to give a flying crap about any of my posts being marked as “sensitive.” I did turn it on to look at my posts and, strangely, it seems mostly stuff I’ve put up for download and posts featuring pets have been marked. Granted, they did get a few right, like the one from last night with a topless Gwen pregnancy-popping….but I already tag such posts as “nsfw,” anyway.
That said, unless a lot of people who follow me actually use this “safe” mode business, I’m not going to bother with appealing to Tumblr about it because, frankly, I don’t care. But if a lot of people do use that mode, I might care. Sort of. Or not, frankly.
Honestly, if anything I post is remotely “sensitive” I’ll either tag it as such or warn in the text before any “sensitive” stuff is shown/talked about, which I’d also put behind a cut. So, if you’re worried about “sensitive” stuff from me…Well, you’re probably better off using Xkit or the like and blocking posts tagged nsfw if you don’t wanna see (usually non-sexually) nekkid pixels on your dash. Frankly, I’m far better at tagging/flagging/warning appropriately than any algorithm is going to be.
