Default Reddits pretty dope

For everyone always waxing nostalgic about message boards, they're still alive and better than ever... It's just that Reddits totally took over and dominated the field. I've been shooting the shit on a few different forums on there I'm getting up voted like crazy!

Anyone else use that shit?

It's kinda sad though, The SP page is lacking in content and activity. Netpho still rules the roost as far as Pumpkins communities go!

I liked Reddit more once I found the niche subreddits that are more my interest.

Them adding the feature to remove/block subreddits has been a godsend - blocking anything and everything political-related has made the site much more bearable as well.

I'm amazed at how many people are willing to share nudes on a very public site.

The subreddit for the city I live in is toxic as fuck.

The Smashing Pumpkins subreddit is about as active as I'd expect and like. Every now and then I see some edgelord I suspect to be a Netphorian outcast try to make some edgy comment about the Pumpkins. Unfortunately, Monte is there as well.

I feel too old for reddit and would rather just wither and waste away here, if you don't mind.

Reddit admins recently banned the /r/incel subreddit. They ban subreddits that allow and encourage hate speech like this every few months, but only when they become so out of control that even the moderaters of those subreddits refuse to deal with the Reddit admins. They keep them around as long as possible because they think that disgusting hate speech is "valuable conversation" that is worth acknowledging as legitimate. I don't understand how they can still think that when these subreddits meet their inevitable conclusion again and again. A few years ago it was the "jailbait" and "creepshots" subreddits. They were removed only after receiving bad publicity for them. Later there was the "fatpeoplehate" and "n****rs" subreddits which were banned after their moderaters didn't cooperate with the admins. The entire front page was filled with Nazi swastikas, and the "punchable faces" subreddit exploded in popularity as previous regulars of fatpeoplehate flocked there to post pictures pictures of the then-CEO of Reddit, who also received hatespeech targeting her for being both a woman and an asian. I think this was the first time I realised that Reddit is too far gone.

Reddit was undoubtedly influential in the rise in popularity and eventual election of Donald Trump. It's one of the largest communities dedicated to discussing and worshipping him, and it exists on a bedrock that all discussion is valuable and legitimate, no matter how baselessly hateful it is, or how much further back it pushes equality. It is more important to Reddit that people have absolute and complete freedom of speech, even though Reddit has absolutely no obligation to enforce the first amendment, which Americans always forget is not an amendment to the constitution of the internet or the entire world.

Idk where I'm going at with this but basically Reddit is a toxic place that draws you in with cute cat pictures and then blindsides you with hate mongering on par with 4chan.

I just don't encounter that side of reddit much. When I do, I hide/block/whatever subreddit it came from and see even less of it.

I'm more in favor of letting whatever fly on the site and giving the user the option to hide the subreddit if they don't like the content. Once you start drawing lines and deciding what should be censored and banned, it becomes an infinite slippery slope for all involved, not just those on the "right side" of the line.

it is problematic how they deal with hate speech. ultimately it's entertaining (i mean the subs i go to) and i don't participate very much, a few comments a week. i don't think the baby needs to be thrown away with the bathwater but shallowed you make excellent points

Is dope better than rad?

Much as I'd love the positive reinforcement of upvotes that selection bias would surely provide, I've got a lot of VHS cassettes that aren't exactly going to watch themselves.

it was a r/frugal/ post about reduced fees for the GRE. apparently the program is not well known. anyone who qualifies gets half off, which is like $110 per test and most people take 1 or 2 (subject and regular), more if they repeat

I admit, the site can be a little intimidating in some cases as it takes awhile to get used to the format. It's good to discuss a lot of niche topics though. It's good for fans of TV shows and talking sports and things like that... But I definitely wouldn't wanna venture into the political realm over there or whatever.
