How can reddit ever die? There's millions of people dumb enough and demoralized enough to not only see nothing wrong with the site's moderation policies, but they'll blame themselves if they ever do get banned. Where else can they go to get their latest hate-free takes on countless different niche and popular interests? How else will they be able to ask morgan freeman or the creators of rick and morty questions? Where else will they be able to discuss the lesbian dinosaurs on doctor who without anyone making "Lickalottapuss" jokes?
Well, nobody thought tumblr would go the way it did, but look at it now. I honestly can't say the last time it was relevant, and i only seen it brought up in conversations such as these.

Honestly? I think porn is gonna be the next thing to get axed given how advertiser friendly reddit has become, then it's going to go the way of tumblr.

There's been a lot of 'reddit is dying' fear-mongering on the site for years, but in the event they end up doing that, along with recent policy changes and the ever-looming threat of the revocation of sec. 230, we're actively watching reddit actually die this time.
I would have said that around Tumblr's massive ban but I imagine "sex positivity" will be getting an even more massive push soon. We are already seeing the promotion of open relationships and sex work with anyone being critical of the porn industry labeled as nazi bigots.

Do you think most posts you see on reddit are made by real people? There's an awful lot more bots than you think posting there.

It's like the inverse of those only-fans publicity accounts on twitter/instagram. One began as exclusively porn but now gives unsolicited political pandering (seriously, who goes to an e-prostitute for these issues? they sure as shit don't want to talk about income tax laws) while Reddit on the other hand began as and became popular for its openness to talk about whatever you want, but now is subsumed by pornography because that wing of the site is the only one still adhering to such a value system (even when the fetishes involved actually are universally reviled and are in certain cases illegal).

I like Null's reaction to the exodus and several other sites. Some reddit off-shoots welcome the refugees but others appreciate the damage to bandwidth and discussion letting communities move wholesale onto a different site at the snap of your fingers.
Yes, of course I'm drawing real world parallels here, why?
Because up until the terror massacres in 2016-17 became a weekly fixture, reddit's hivemind decided that migrants were a great thing. Be it crossing the Mediterranean or the Rio Grande, we have to repeat to ourselves that this is great and moral and any dissent won't be tolerated. For about a year, the entire site gaslit itself into thinking ONLY good can come from this.
Then it got to the stage that post-terrorism mourning rituals were regularly being interrupted by more atrocities, and redditors collectively agreed to just not talk about it, or at least admit terrorists are bad while still buying into the conceit that you can completely re-educate and assimilate foreign individuals by telling them what you personally think, and how it'd be just swell if they gave up their entire outlook on life til now and replace it with yours.

Again, why the tangent? Because it exposes the cognitive dissonance of so many redditors.
The admins appreciate that the only way to keep the lies popular is through censorship. For the redditors though, they have the dissonance of, on the one hand believing they can make people that can't speak english into ecstatic Nintendo Switch owning, Marvel movie watching consumers like themselves just through a couple classes on the weekend, while on the other hand abhoring their literal neighbours who regular'd /r/consumeproduct and /r/gendercritical, and genuinely thought the whole site would be tainted and the values fundamentally changed if they allowed these hostile foreign communities to grow unabated.

Porn is great (for them). Porn keeps people docile.

Ive had a thought: You think some of the people who are leaving Reddit will head to Tumblr? As far as i know the site enforces anti porn policy but doesn’t really focus on hate speech.
No, the people from the left-leaning corporate approved boards will go to the discords for those topics. The boomers from the_donald are just going to flood 4chan and facebook, not that anyone will be able to notice.

I don't feel bad for a single one of the people who're being affected by this. The time to leave leddit was fucking literal years ago at this point and these retards helped keep that shithole alive by their stubborn refusal to pick up shop and head somewhere else.

It's the same as people who whine about Twitter censorship, but when banned are right there again with a fresh sock account. Those kinds of people are the fucking problem.

Counterpoint: it's Tumblr. You really think "hate speech" will last very long on it? We have a whole section of the farms dedicated to it, and it's mostly crazy-ass progs from what I saw last time I checked it.
 

Never Scored

I used to use a reddit account soley for posting on my local sub because I'm not on any social media and there are few avenues to discuss local politics outside of those. It seemed to be sheltered from the wider bullshit on Reddit. A year ago it had one moderater who was barely active. There were no posts about Donald Trump or any US politics shit. I'd make an account, use it for a few months, then delete the account, take a break for a month or so and repeat the process.

Last year, a contingent of users complained about the lack of moderation and the one moderator added four more moderators. First they started cracking down on joke posts and pictures of scenery and stuff like articles from rebel media.

Over the last month, the sub has gotten taken over by blm shit despite the fact that the area the sub represents is like 95% white and literally thousands of kilometres from any other city with more than 100,000 people or any significant non-white population. There have been endless news articles featuring the same rotation of a dozen or so black people talking about microagressions in the local media. The sub clearly had less than 100 active users, yet comments seemed to be getting brigaded with sometimes hundreds of upvotes and downvotes. Mods were openly posting in a leftist politics subreddit, talking about posts they were going to push on the local subreddit for upvotes. Then they put a stickey at the top of the page saying that are now recruiting MORE mods. So I deleted my latest account a week or so ago with no intention of reregistering this time.

Then I come on Kiwi Farms today and this has happend. Reddit will soon be god damn unusable. Shit about Trump and US race politics is seeping into even the smallest, most specific subs. A year ago, you'd go months without race being mentioned on the sub. Now it's being shoehorned into every conversation.

A large portion of Tumblr’s user base has left for twitter due to the porn ban... The site is a shadow of what it Once was

Hmph. It took 20 million dollars and sitting on the damn thing for 14 years, but Conde Nast is finally getting to flex their purchasing power and "shift the narrative" 4 months before the election. I'm sure it feels good, like firing that old hunting rifle that's been on the den wall for the first time in two decades. Problem is, they haven't been shooting regularly, and aren't going to hit their marks. All those right wingers are going to remember who to vote for in 4 months, all you've done is scare them into the brush.

Fair, I just think that it's still going to have the exact same problem reddit did, and that it'll just be a winding back of the doom-clock if they somehow get away with an emigration to it.

There is technically a "no hate speech" rule but Tumblr moderation is so bad that the hugboxians of the site regularly complain about the site not banning right wing users. That's partially why the porn ban was put in place in the first place - bad moderation.

Outside of the glaring and rampant child porn issue, the porn bots weren't getting flagged as NSFW and were sticking porn in relatively innocent tags. The search tag system also picked up on similar tags, so if you were looking for "precure" (which is a kids show that has an adult fandom) then you ran the chance of seeing a post showing Naked Lady Posing because it was tagged as "precum". One of the issues that occured post-porn-ban was that when they were banning specific tag searches due to porn, some of these similar unrelated non-porn tags were also banned. So, needless to say, if Tumblr cares, they aren't very diligent.

It would make for an interesting Tumblr Renaissance.
