Are there any tags you blacklist for personal reasons?
By "personal reasons" I mean something you blacklist not for work-related concerns, aversion to blood/gore, headache prevention ("epilepsy_warning"), etc, but just because some perfectly innocuous tag rubs you the wrong way and you don't like seeing it.

I have exactly one: "dragonstuck". I guess I'm just that dude who thinks dragons kinda blow, and I really really have no interest in seeing Homestuck characters portrayed such (dracomorphized?). That's an inexplicably major turn-off for me.

Any comparable blacklisting experiences out there, or am I just sitting here being super racist against dragons by myself?

I only do so when there are large dumps of ships I'm not too fond of. It's usually temporary, though there are a few I keep blacklisted.

Like................... which?

That's what I'm curious about.

The only tag I blacklist is "pawfeet" because they just kinda creep me out. I dunno what it is exactly that gets me on edge about them (especially considering my usual body of work), but there's something about the quarter-bestializing of characters that I just can't sit through.

Oh, its usually when there are Communism dumps, because I personally find it an annoying ship. That and when there's excessive JohnDave posted.

The tags I've have blacklisted are Fandomstuck(which is very unrelatable to me), stridercest, and age_discrepancy(I'm not a fan of any pairings that involve an adult receprocating any crushes from a minor, especially if they are related).

As for dumps or small uploads of ships or other things I usually don't like, I just mostly ignore them. Though once in a blue moon, there might be an image I do like enough to add to my favorites, despite the content I usually disapprove of which is why I have so few blacklist tags.

I don't blacklist anything.

Communism and Spiders. God bless the person who came up with the tag for spiders, because spiders scare the crap outta me.

I've blacklisted one pairing for a short amount of time due to being actually emotionally distressed for personal and rather serious reasons, far beyond just not shipping things and then I got over it and moved on as canon shifted.

I honestly couldn't stand those character shots where they ALL HAD NOSEBLEEDS.
But then recently I noticed it covering up wounded characters and non-nosebleed-centric pics so I took it off. (in hopes that the one artist that did all those original nosebleed shots doesn't do anymore or something...)

I don't blacklist anything because I am an Übermensch.

I find the whole idea very silly. Prove me wrong.
