Every few days I remove a link to something genuinely upsetting, like sex toys based of a children's show or a videogame where you murder women and black people. They're always posted as a "look at this terrible thing" sort of post, and while I shouldn't be surprised that people will post stuff like that here since a lot of us came from SRS, it was kind of in the back of my mind that this was a place for less rotten stuff. However, these posts are always highly upvoted and never come with reports, so am I missing something?
Like if you want to talk about this kind of thing, make a text post describing it and turn it into a joke. I do that sometimes when I think of something funny. But actually linking to the thing, even with a content warning, just strikes me as really weird. Like, I wouldn't show a friend a video of an oculus rift game where you look up anime child skirts. That isn't my idea of a fun thing to watch together. I'm not sure if I want that on dorknet.
But yea, this kind of stuff never comes with reports or even negative comments (you fucking weird people!) so maybe I'm over moderating. Please let me know if this gets in the way of posting. And remember, if I remove your post that doesn't mean you shouldn't just post something again. If you haven't had a post removed it just means you aren't posting enough.
Edit: Couple people have noted that they just ignore those kind of things and don't click on them, which I totally understand but if you are even at all irked by a post report it. I mean, I click on everything here anyway so I'm always going to see it but I'll get to it faster if u report it!
