I understand both the concerns which have been bought and shared before.

I do acknowledge that images have more potential to harm others,
although I believe in exact opposite that words have both the power to
heal and burn in ways images never can.

Nevertheless, I did say sorry in
but if there is anything more that is needed to be done by me which
will make amends I'm ready to do that. If it is simply to ackowledge
here on the mailing list, have done that. If it is to acknowledge on
another blog post that my choice of picture was not great and be more
sensitive in choosing pictures am ready to do that as well.

For my part, I also tried asking the same question in

But as can be seen no one has bothered to reply as of yet. I would
probably use webapps.stackexchange.com to see if some sort of
technical solution is also available that could be used as well.

I believe the ideal solution would be a mix of both social and
technical solution .

As an aside, yesterday, I just registered and tried hex.bz which is a
public instance of mastodon and saw there is a neat CW (Content
Warning) code which hides content and if people want to make a choice
to still see the content then they are responsible.
