opt-in content filters

The more I think about it, the more I don't particularly care for opt-in content filters. So I removed my opt-in filter for poetry, which means anyone on my friends list can read my poetry postings (I haven't made any in a long time, though).

I don't really object to other people's having content filters, and I see why they might be necessary for work-unsafe postings. But when people on my friends list ask about opt-in content filters, I always respond to them by saying "please put me on all filters you're comfortable having me on."

And I sometimes feel an uncomfortable obligation to search out the opt-in content filter postings of all the folks on my friends list or else risk missing something I would enjoy reading (and possibly give someone the wrong idea because I happen to miss a day or two of their journal and miss their content-filter poll). However, I'm aware that this is my problem, not anyone else's.

The only opt-in I have is that I label the basic area of discussion (Meme, Politics, Update, Allergoes, whatever). I also cut-tag almost everything. . I do have some friends-only posts, but you're on my friends list, so you get to see them.

That is, the reader gets to decide from the label and the cut-tatg whether they want to bother reading.

Am I making sense yet?

Yep, makes perfect sense. Mostly how I do it, tho' I don't have names for topic areas.
