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.

Re: opt-in content filters
*nod*. i don't usually care enough to have content pre-filtered for me; i can easily avoid reading things i am not interested in (such as BDSM stuff which still squicks me a fair amount). and i might easily miss a content-filter poll since i go at times for days without reading anyone else if i become too preoccupied with other things, and then don't always catch up, even though i try. and that's becoming more of an issue now that i am reading a lot more people because i am trying to get to know my team members. (right, not anyone's problem but mine -- but i am glad you don't do content filters, so i am not gonna miss anything from you.)
