I think the overuse of marking images on Mastodon as sensitive, is harmful. It creates a default action of clicking the image. If an image was actually sensitive, e.g. it displays death, torture, nudity, etc., a Mastodon user is likely to reflexively click on it without thought, and be exposed to something they would have preferred not to.

@rgegriff I think that most of this can be overcome with practice. Classical (nylon string) guitars have thicker necks, if that's what you are into (I am). Bass guitars also have a lot more room between the strings, but bass isn't generally something you would play alone.
