I have another take on the idea of "demanding content warnings from strangers".

I've been asked (never _demanded_) a few times. As a white cis man, it behooves me to listen, even if I choose not to use it in the end. (I always have, though that may not be right for you.)

Look, many of us are here for community and understanding, and sometimes that means listening to things that may seem "alienating" at first--but it's really important to keep our ears and hearts open and understand.

Always be listening.

Just realized that I closed a ticket at work in my companies official ticketing system with a "decaffeination error". Now we sit back and wait to see if anybody notices.
