As discussed in [personal profile] greywash's master thread and its comments, this is a major concern for fans.

Tumblr, while convenient in many ways, kind of died on this hill for many fans. It's certainly been a major issue in the devaluing of predominantly-female fandoms in the eyes of outsiders, and it's gutted more than one fandom (Sherlock BBC, I'm looking at you). How many of us have burned old fandom identities behind us to shake toxic attention or orphaned works on AO3 to avoid old associations?

In existing sites, Pillowfort is trying to take a strong stand against this and has some interesting—if confusing to new users coming from tumblr—measures in place to try to combat it. As do Dreamwidth and AO3 and perhaps others I'm not sure about.

What do we need to keep fans safe from abuse? What kind of measures do we expect from a site that wants fans?
