Should graphic content be allowed in this website?
We are talking about language and quite frequently people may ask questions or provide answers that contain graphic content. Should there be a flag or other process to protect users from seeing this information (even if the content/context is correct in producing the vulgar language)? Take this answer for example.
Definitely seems like a correct answer but not sure I would like unsuspecting individuals (like me) to run into this language.
My wife, teachers, and extended family and friends, purposefully do not teach any Chinese "curse words" or phrases to me. Should CL adhere to such standards?
If not then probably adding some protections might be in order to:
- Prevent curses from being shown in search results
- Automated tagging of such content and giving users ability to filter from the Q&A
Useful questions might include:
- How do other language sites handle these possibilities?
- Should we be simply flagging any graphic content regardless of any otherwise perceived educational value?
If I've missed a site rule that already covers this issue please point it out me and thanks taking the time to read, comment, and respond.
