New and more transparent handling of NSFW content

@testkitchen members can now try out a new way to deal with NSFW content:
  • Toggle the NSFW button in the top bar to see NSFW posts and soups in /everyone, friends stream, groups and user soups.
  • The NSFW button is pinned to the browser. So you can be in SFW mode at work and in NSFW at home.
  • Complimentary to that functionality, users can now mark each individual post as NSFW with a toggle in the edit bar. 
  • If a user (accidentally) forgets about marking a post and a nsfw picture gets to /everyone, and enough people report it, the user will get their entire soup marked as NSFW and a notification will let them now about it. 
  • Once a soup has been marked as NSFW, the owner can undo it by themselves (Settings, privacy, NSFW Soup) as long as they don't repeat the accident too often. 
  • Posts marked as NSFW at time of creation are not exported to facebook
  • Imports can be set to NSFW so all resulting posts will be marked NSFW.
The import thing does not work in the testkitchen, which is kind of risky, but it's the limit of our staging right now. The same goes for refreshing the notifications cache, so you won't see the notification about your soup being NSFW in the top bar, only in the dropdown and in /notifications.

What we intend to do with it: we want soups that are sometimes sexy/nsfw but not always back on /everyone. To enable people to do that, we're offering per-post and per-import NSFW toggles. So please, if you have the checkbox ticked in your privacy settings, then go through your stuff, set the NSFW stuff to NSFW and untick that checkbox.

The second reason is, that we need to know what stuff is NSFW so we can appeal to a larger audience, enable people to surf soup at work (teeheeheehee) and I think the deciding factor, to enable us to release a reading app on iPhone. Apple are effing Nipple Nazis. And so they are the ones who define what is and is not NSFW on Soup ...
Please have at it to your hearts content and let us know of peculiarities, inconsistencies or whatever else you may find.
