Add [NSFW] Label to threads in the PA Hub?

Tycho and Gabe occasionally step over the PG-13 boundary with their comics, like today's impressive sample, and for folks slacking off from what they're paid to do it could potentially land them in the soup. Would it be viable to have Geth mark a comic as NSFW, and possibly inline it in the comic discussion thread?

    I'm not exactly sure how an automated process (Geth making threads for new comics) is supposed to also interpret the image of the comic and decide it is NSFW. Not unless the guys figure out a way to tag comics as they upload them I guess.

    Which isn't to say this is a bad idea, just saying automating it isn't a single button press.

    Edit - Also mods have manually tagged threads before. I'm sure this will be a thing.

    Well I'm admittedly completely ignorant about how Geth detects a new comic to make a post about it, but I thought perhaps there could be a flag in the metadata that whoever uploads the comic to the site could set, and when Geth detects this flag he knows to add [NSFW] and post a link rather than embed the image.

    Or maybe that's impossible. I dunno, just a thought.

    Oh! This is not the thread for "tagging," my mistake.

    I really, REALLY like the [tag] system that just appeared.

    To pre-empt future confusion I have changed the thread name.

    I dunno... I never understood how browsing a gaming website's forums was somehow more SFW than the PG-13 content of some of the comics. Fortunately, my employer doesn't restrict non-work-related browsing so long as all employee's get their job done ... oh wait, I just answered my own question. NEVER MIND.
