@thufir You might be interested to know that William Tecumseh Sherman & Joshua Abraham Norton were partners in a plot to corner the San Francisco rice market in the 1850s. When their scheme collapsed (owing to the unexpected arrival of a shipload of rice), both went mad. Sherman, who had friends & family in the US, went to an insane asylum, & ultimately became a general in the US Army. Norton, a South African, became Emperor of the United States.

It strikes me that rather than CW being a negative action it should be a positive action, by which on mean maybe every post should have, by default or requirement, a content descriptor, and timelines could be tailored based on those descriptors rather than default shown (so for example I don't mind eye contact selfies, i set my default content viewing to just go ahead and show them).
