I feel like content warnings are fundamentally badly implemented on Mastodon.

People seem to use them to tag the category of a post, , , etc...
However, abusing a "spoiler" tag for that and hiding the content by default just makes reading your feed difficult.

Ideally people would be encouraged to use to tag the content of posts.
The the clients would auto-hide/content warning posts based on what subjects the user does/doesn't want to see.

The the current content warning feature could just be used a "spoiler" tag.

"The the clients would auto-hide/content warning posts based on what subjects the user does/doesn't want to see."

Related, I was thinking of trying out using ML based content subject detection to implement this automatically. Not sure content detection is accurate enough though, especially on such small snippets of text.
