This is in flamewars, is it not?
This is a place for venting and putting things down the way you want them.

That doesn't mean we can be total asshats to one another. I'm just saying turn it down. 
Just because this is flamewars does not mean you don't get monitored for what you say. It doesn't mean there are no rules. And it doesn't mean I'm not a moderator. I still have to do my job.
I'm sorry.

Personally, I think that if you want a trigger warning in your own series, then great. If a creator chooses to do so, then that is fantastic, and I applaud them for their choices to risk immersion in exchange for happy viewers. 
However, if a person chooses to not place trigger warnings within their videos, I don't think they should be chastised. 
Trigger warnings in a horror series, in my opinion, are ungodly unnecessary. People should know what to expect when they are watching a series that falls into the genre. It is our job as (horror genre) creators to make people uncomfortable. If people are triggered, then we are doing our job correctly. 

TLDR: Good job to those who choose to warn people, good job to those who don't. We shouldn't have to, people are dumb.
