A&H new rule proposal - Subtitle must be the website the article came from

But the source is already listed. It shows what the sources is IN the post. I'm just not sure why something like this is necessary. Seems like a waste of time and space. Especially atrocious if it replaces the subtitle
Yeah, and having it listed in the subtitle means when I see some title like "Gamers murdered 50 bazillion people today" I can decide if it's worth reading about based on whether it's being published by the new york times or some dumb fucking clickbait farm nobody has ever heard of.

Admittedly it might make CatParty's job harder.

Who cares where the news is coming from? If it happened, it happened. Only exception is the ultra right wing stuff, which shouldn’t be allowed on here anyway for public safety reasons.

But those have the best comment reading material!

It's generally pretty easy to tell by the headlines where the shit is from not to mention



You see it tells you what site is from. This isn't reddit where you would have to click the link to see the article, it's already standard practice to copy pasta the article in the thread.

Besides, the best part is if you aren't paying attention you'll make a stupid ass comment buying into some bullshit and then people will get to make fun of you. And without things like that what is the purpose of going to A&H anyway?

What do you mean with "public safety reasons" and why only right wing stuff?

Yes but the violent ideas and opinions that come with them are too dangerous to show to impressionsble white people.
But left wing stuff is constantly making people troon out, mutiliate their genitals and subsequently commit 42%.

That is far more dangerous.

Yes, we all realize once you've clicked the topic you see the site from the link, assuming the OP posted it in that style and not a literal copy-paste which does happen quite a bit.

The second part of your argument is intriguing, I suppose the answer to that depends on how much A&H is meant to feed the rest of the site. I have certainly fallen into that trap myself a couple of times and undoubtedly provided some laughs at my own expense.

EDIT: Frankenstein right. Doubleposting BAD!

Also obviously we need a woosh rating implemented immediately for posts like this.

Come on dude, I know internet sarcasm is hard sometimes but jeez...

I mean, A&H has always been a /pol/ carbon copy, it's just gotten worse since recently.

Might be needed if we get these literal /pol/tards posting sources that are obviously fake but the exceptional individuals they are can't tell that.

Well if you come to A&H for something that doesn't resemble /pol/ at least in some way then the front page of reddit is right there. Probably 70% of the articles from verifiable mainstream sources on A&H would be deleted from a major news subreddit for some sort of "hate speech dogwhistle" or "cultural insensitivity". Because reality isn't like that magical fairyland that exists in their heads.

Stereotypes exist. Because people in general noticed patterns in various groups of people. Is it evil? May as well say life is evil then.

I disagree with getting rid of the second tag for comedic reasons and replacing it with the site name, but I wouldn’t be opposed to having the source shown in brackets or something at the start of the header.

Example: [CNN] Trump’s Undocumented Migrant Kill-count Rises in Lieu of ICE Deportations - (optional comment)

You make it sound like you have never literally seen some of those types of comments. They've actually been increasing here as well.

"Any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots will eventually be flooded by actual idiots who mistakenly believe that they're in good company."

I assume you've heard the phrase "lurk more"? It's not like you need an account to read this website. This gatekeeping type argument you are doing is quite reddit-tier.
We don't want this site turning into /pol/, nigger. We don't want people posting shit from the Daily Stormer or some cringefest of a site like that as if it were hardcore truth. You sure aren't reading the thread very well, nor much of the site.

But, since you're always in the right, and I'm just filth here, I'll butt my head out. No need to quip at me anymore.

I meant resemble /pol/ and 4chan in some way as in free speech and arguments, I didn't mean literally /pol/.... I'm not insane, well..... not insane in that way. If you guys misunderstood, I apologise for not explaining better.
