I have no rival, No man can be my equal!
Me too, but, just seen some jannies remove stuff for no reason other than because it goes against group think. Depends on the thread I guess.

At least someone isn't posting child porn in threads they dislike. Fucking autist redditors.

Reddit was legitimately interesting, insofar as news and content aggregates can be, when the front page wasn't hobbled. I remember in the early 2010s between the time I woke up and the time I got to work the content would have changed multiple times over.

Now posts are clearly artificially stuck on the top for maximum viewership or whatever.

The other biggest drawback is the infinite splitting off of subreddits. It's impossible to actually foster a community there and discuss things because anything tangential gets moved to its own subreddit for being off topic or whatever and kills the conversation.

Reddit is a peak consume media product.

I think the benign cases just LARP because of shame. Which is sad. You shouldn't have to change your identity to feel accepted, and this is what being "cuckolded" looks like.

I would just simply tell those people not to internalize all of this shit: none of this is about them, technically speaking.

But the extreme cases want power, like Rachel Dolezal. And they're dangerous because they're sociopaths.
We need more sociopathic larpers, tbh. Let's make masculinity cool again by exploiting the giant loopholes in modern transgender ideology. Let's make the clown world meme magic come true. :popcorn:

No successful politician isn't somewhat sociopathic, after all.

Speaking of Dolezal, she's not the only transracial person. There's also Martina Big and some MTF sissy fetishists, lol.

You know, Reddit may have fucked up here with this new policy. Reddit is a private company in much the same way that the drug stores in Montgomery Alabama were private companies circa 1950. The argument for those drug stores was that as private businesses, they could choose who to give sit down service too at their lunch counters. For any reason. They never outright stated WHAT the reasons were (usually), but for some reason black people had to order take out only. When it became clear that the Feds were circling in using the 14th amendment, those stores that actually put up signs saying "whites only", simply took them down, but when a black person came in for some reason they still would not get service.

Which is something the civil rights act moved to address. In broad strokes it said even Private businesses did not have the right to deny service, if those policies inordinately impacted one race over the other. The 14th Amendment already made what these businesses were doing shady, but it was still "open to interpretation". Fortunately the 1960s were a time when Congress actually did things, and they passed a law that did the "interpretation" of the 14th Amendment rather then wait decades for the unelected judges to get around to addressing the issue. And bang, if you refuse service based on race or gender, you violate the civil rights act, which was formed under the auspices of the 14th amendment due process clause.

We now have a novel problem here with Reddit. They aren't ostensibly discriminating against any individuals race or gender. Anyone can sign up and use their "lunch counter". But what they are doing is explicitly differentiating based on race what the people can "eat" at their "lunch counter". Black people can buy the steaks, and shout "black power, fuck crackers!" But if white people try and buy the steak and say "fuck niggers", they get kicked out of the "lunch counter". White people have to content themselves with just the soup du jour, and agree that its fair for the black people to monopolize the steaks. They aren't outright being REFUSED service, but the services rendered are unequal.

The most important thing being that they are EXPLICITLY unequal. And that is what open the door here. You see, Reddit was not smart like the Montgomery Alabama drug stores were smart. When the carpet baggers and G men started sniffing around, they just took down the "Whites Only" signs and became "officially" open to everyone while in practice continued their racist ways. Which in turn forced Congress to act, because absent such explicitly stated discriminatory policy even the courts would have a hard time enforcing desegregation. They could get the Public Schools because they were Public. That was easy. Getting the private businesses? Not at all. They were private. Congress had to pass a law.

But Reddit was not smart like those drug stores. Reddit was dumb. Reddit didn't take down the "Whites not allowed" sign. They put one up where before it was just implied. The exact opposite of the Montgomery Alabama drug stores. Which means that with Congress unwilling to do anything, the courts actually can. Because Reddit has now codified discrimination into the use of their "lunch counter". It would still be a novel argument. But it could stick.

People keep saying one of the good things about reddit is at least you can get help on various topics but is that actually true?

Logged in to my account for the first time in about 6 months, had a look at posts I made. Maybe I've just been really unlucky but any time I've had questions I'd get half answers or downright retarded gibberish.

You-Pls recommend pc case with DVD drive as I use them still.
Reddit-Here is a good one.
You-doesn't have DVD drive?
Reddit-a what now? No one uses those you loser.

Tends to be the bigger subs though, maybe smaller communities have lower concentration of tards and are more helpful, I don't know.
I asked a question in a smaller subreddit, and I got an actual answer from it, plus the regulars were very friendly about it. Probably due to it being a bigger sub.

I can agree with that, it's why I said my 'fun' reddit account is dead. There's still value in the website, just not if you go to popular subs, and definitely not if you want to talk about unpopular opinions. It's like a fancy restaurant. I eat like a pig at home but if I go out I'm gonna mind the way I act, even if it's not really who I am.

Doing a bit of research and I just discovered something: you can hover your mouse over where it says "Banned X years ago" and it'll show you the exact time & date when a sub was banned.

Doesn't seem to be perfect, though. They banned r/niggers 3 months ago? What? I'm guessing just to update the ban description? But they originally banned that sub ages ago.
