I believe that content warnings are a pretty good idea, but I don't have time & energy to create them for every single text. This is a site-wide content warning and personal thoughts on how I want to deal with upsetting and harmful information.
This website contains material that might be upsetting to many people, including pick-up, race, gender, death, suffering, suicide, human extinction and net-negative futures.
I write in a relatively clinical tone and avoid graphic descriptions, but often can't (or don't want to) avoid mentioning or writing about sensitive topics.
That said, most pages on this site are harmless for almost all people, and the titles are usually a good indicator of whether you want to read the text.
I am very careful about avoiding spreading information hazards and manipulative memes. If you believe you have found such information on this website, please contact me. For obvious reasons, I don't want to give examples of such hazards, but abstractly, those would be information that causes harm to a sufficient number (>10%) of people.
I reserve it to myself to judge some information an information hazard. I also don't negotiate with terrorist memeplexes.
