And here's me who laughed at my granny for using tablecloths to hide indecent table legs.

Yes I know it's myth but it persists because there's a truth hidden in there that a prurient mind can find offence anywhere.

Ho hum anyway reddits sandbox reddits rules.

5 years 27,000 + subscribers how many in this vocal minority?

What really bugs me is the BBC syndrome that seems to be at play. Million of viewers a handful of complaints and all those other millions are ignored in order to comply with a miniscule percentage.

A transcript of my conversation with the admin can be found on /r/museumdiscuss.

Just because it is more than pornography doesn't mean it isn't pornography. How can you argue this is safe for work? (Obvious NSFW warning)

Normally I'm against the reddit admins but I agree with them here. I took a look at your subreddit and some of the posts definitely do need the NSFW tag. Your argument of "museums don't do it" isn't valid because people don't go to museums in a work environment. In this case, people can get in trouble for viewing NSFW images if they're at work or school. The whole point of the NSFW tag is to prevent that.

The admins aren't forcing you to tag all posts as NSFW, only ones that actually are NSFW. So making it an 18+ sub to mark everything NSFW is dumb imo.

Since Voat has NSFW tags too, the same would likely be the case here.

I just looked at the front page and didn't see anything NSFW. Sure there was some nudity but that's common for art.

What if we create /v/outrage and randomly pick reddit subs to be outraged about and then all message the admins about it at once?

You have to be 18 or older to view art on reddit but you can be 8 and watch all the violence you want on tv. Murica.

I clicked on it. Some of those images would get people fired if they looked at it while at work. You may not like that, but that is probably the reason.

Whose fault would that be? That is an intense amount of perceived liability. If your job involves browsing an art sub, hopefully you won't get fired for the surprise marble titty or feminist performance art.

When I clicked on the page to see what the outrage was about, there was a little more than a surprise marble titty. And I have no idea what feminist performance art is. But I would like a special warning for that category, so that I don't even have to see it.

I'm guessing you are not an American, correct?

Ah, ok. Have you ever worked in a large American corporation? Are you of working age, familiar with US corporate culture and aware just how easy it is for people to get fired over something like this?

(Hey, I'm not saying that's right, but...)
