Is that so you can wear a Velcro vest and jump-stick yourself onto that wall?

Reason.com comments are going through the woodchipper as well. Subpoenas issued, grand jury impaneled, fucking crazy. Thanks Obama.

The only good thing about reddit, is the naked women's.

Basically: someone posts something you don't like. You take that post and link to it in some other sub-forum with a bunch of people who agree with you. Those people rush in to attack that person, downvote comments defending them, etc.

An example of a sub that apparently still exists and was not banned: one where someone decides which people posting in the relationship advice forum are sluts...and then a bunch of sweaty neckbeards go and attack them, send them nasty PMs, etc

As far as I understand it, the fat-hating sub tried to actively discourage this behavior. They didn't go chase fat people around the internet yelling about them being fat (although I am sure some members did).

i should clarify that I'm looking at ideas for my little brother's wedding. I'm helping!


Also see that having an ice cream truck show up and be all "it's all paid for, take whatever you want!" will only be about $150-175 for 50 people. Worth it.

That part is great. I also like my city's local subreddit--I've found out about lots of neat events from it and it is a good place to get a quick answer to questions like "Where can I buy XYZ" or "What's the best place for JKL"

I head heard rumors that such things could be found on the interwebz. So this is where they were hiding?

Yikes, that is twisted. It's just like how SJW and such work.

I also think the hypocrisy of getting rid of the biggest anti-fat community, but leaving a bunch of more aggressive and more offensive subreddits is going to be a mistake. The people in there are clearly assholes (as evidenced by their response on the rest of the site and personal attacks on the CEO), but they are far from the most offensive people out there...and as far as I can tell, the subreddit was pretty good about removing all personal information, discouraging brigading, etc.

Eh. The fat people hate was unbelievably pervasive on reddit so if if one has to go, it's the one that has morphed into a 1984-esque Two Minute Hate in perpetuity. There was some truly truly shameful shit that they did spread to other subreddits and overall, caused a well-beyond toxic atmosphere on reddit.

Reddit's biggest problem (and it creeps up everywhere) is this generational thing now that all the internet must be free of anything and everything always. Oh, we never should have to pay for stuff. And it's just quite simply the most delusional, self-serving tripe you can ever come across.

Oh, the sjw subs are some of the biggest offenders. One is called "shit Reddit says" and literally all they do is go find comments they don't like (regardless of context or joking/sarcasm level). I don't see any of those ones being banned.

To put it in Reddit terms, brigading (I only just learned that this was the term for the behavior) is the difference between a circle jerk and a surprise bukkake.

If you bring it home and jerk off to it with a bunch of sad losers, it doesn't really matter. But if you take the show on the road, you are an asshole.

But Ed is right that there was an astounding amount of vitriol against fat people on Reddit... Which is odd because if I had to draw a picture of my stereotype of a redditor...it wouldn't be a stick figure.
