Hm... this is an interesting approach to moderation, and I'm glad they're trying new things, and I want to like the idea but my TRUST NOBODY philosophy is getting in the way. Also it seems like this three-strikes system is new. I'm glad you get a warning but without specific definitions of the NSFW categories I don't see how they'll be useful. What is "nudity" specifically? Does it include Michelangelo's David, e.g.? Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People? What constitutes "sensitive" religious or "gender" content? With vague criteria, three tries (i.e., three wrong guesses) isn't enough for trial and error to reveal the unrevealed parameters. Why not just specify? I mean I know why: because nobody knows what they are. Just casually viewing my typical newsfeed flow, I would estimate that a large proportion of the posts could arguably be subject to discipline under the vague definitions. I don't see how a "jury" would be useful if the criteria aren't clear. Which they aren't.

"Following a long battle in defense of a controversial Facebook post, Meredith Van Dorn, 20, finally succumbed to cancellation at her home on Thursday night. Ms. Van Dorn was surrounded by friends and loved ones who, upon her cancellation, insisted they always had kind of a weird feeling about her, actually. Ms. Van Dorn’s parents, Peter and Linda, would like their daughter to be remembered for her sweet smile and love of dancing, rather than her provocative feelings about Japanese toilets." https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/obituaries-for-the-recently-canceled #politics #cancelculture #poeslaw #grimhumor #minds
