I'm quite shocked at how controversial this request seems to be with some people. It was a bit disappointing until I read back through the thread and found that basically three people are sustaining the argument against the seven people who have spoken in support of the simple courtesy. Most notably Michael R. seems to think the idea fine. We are in Michael's house, so I think his reasonable point of view should prevail.
As for some of the issues people have brought up:
* Don't surf at work. Mind your own business. You don't know me, my work environment, or my company's policies, so don't presume to be a judge.
* Long threads with a single possible NSFW image. sh!t happens. Try to avoid it. Maybe start an alternate thread with the racier images...like "cars with naked ladies on them" alongside the cars thread.
* NSFW is a meme for "juicy pictures inside." So what. Maybe they are juicy. I'll have a look when I get home tonight.
* This is just another form of censorship. No, it is not. This is labeling so that informed consumers of information can make choices. It is no different than putting a adult rating on a movie. This sort of reasonable accommodation actually makes it easier to fight AGAINST censorship because those who object to the information are empowered to make informed choices.
I have no personal objection to nudity in art and pop culture, but I live in a 9-5 world where those things need to be temporarily put aside. It is the reality I live in and debating the trend is irrelevant to the reality.
You know, there are some other places on the web that have created a different tag. It is NSFL--Not Safe for Life. This tag is used for gory, bloody, or scatological content. I am personally upset by some of these things, so I appreciate the tag because I can avoid being assaulted by photos and videos of decapitated heads and stuff. It isn't that big a leap of logic to consider that some people might feel the same way about the human form. While I disagree with them, it is courteous for me to not trick them (with thread titles that don't contain sufficiently descriptive information) into accidentally seeing things they don't want to.
