As simple as the title reads. There are many relevant cases of animal neglect which could well be on topic for the site. If showing images, should these be hidden? What sort of NSFW policy applies for this site that deals with animal health?

What's the policy on showing images of neglected or sick animals?

Use a spoiler markup '>!' to hide content

like this, if the image is behind it you cant see the image.

  • @Yvette You might not have enough rep yet. They don't use it much at SO, which is the only place you have high rep. You just start the line with >! (leave a space) everything following is hidden. Commented Oct 7, 2016 at 21:33
  • Yeh I think it's just the meta posts, as it's not disabled on the main site.

  • Interesting about edits on meta, you should be able to use the edit button on the two examples I have in the comments under your question. Commented Oct 8, 2016 at 10:00
