I'd rather blacklist a tag than silence a person because people can post about a wild variety of things (I know my personal page is, uh, highly random) and if I have to silence the person I miss out on all the things they might post that aren't about the thing I don't want to see.
I've been silencing too, but damn there are a lot of nsfw pokemon artists out there lol
I'd really love the ability to blacklist posts that contain certain tags. For instance, if I'm scrolling through my bookmarked pokemon tag, I'm not personally interested in seeing furry nsfw there (or anywhere), and muffling it doesn't prevent my whole bookmarked feed being clogged with content I know for a fact I never want to see. I know that not everybody is going to content warning their furry nsfw - but they are likely to add the tag so that people who want that content can find it.
I think that the blacklisting certain content warnings feature is great - but something that allows me to just blacklist certain tags means I'm way more likely to actually be able to filter content I don't want to see. People tend to use tags a lot more than they use content warnings.
Would this maybe look like a combined "Never show me posts with this tag or content warning" option? It's possible that there's a use case for two seperate "Never show me posts with this tag" or "Never show me posts with this content warning", but I can't currently think of one. It feels like it would just add confusion (which I think the current system also does tbh).
Thanks so much for making cohost <3
