Long read here. Feel free to ask me anything and I'll answer best I can. The following walls of text are based on 7+ years of me fighting the progressive lunatics on Reddit. Learning their strategy, documenting the methods they used and taking a stand where I and other mods could.
Sourcing: I was a PowerJannie in a sense but equal and opposite of the ones we all know and love. I was over various subreddits adjacent to KIA2 and some with 100's of thousands or even well over a million users.
--------------------The Hidden Rules--------------------
(Intro: These are all things that will get you banned or warned from Reddit despite not falling within their Content Policy or not being applied evenly.)
Referring to any member of the LGBTQ as: Mentally Ill, Stupid, Ugly, Uneducated, Gross or pretty much anything that isn't a positive statement will get hits for "Hate" or "Targeted Harassment".
Violence - Reddit's definition of "Violence" as it is in the content policy is not how it is enforced by Anti Evil Operations (AEO). ANY sort of comment that mentions a violent act even indirectly will get AEO hits. Such as "Punch Nazis!", "Sucker Punch".
2a. Violence Continued - Disagreeing about something such as Police Brutality or Self Defense in the case of Man vs Woman is considered advocating of violence.
Reporting users of Black, Trans or "Women" spaces regardless of report reason will almost always warrant a ban. "Rules for thee". This is actually done by the powerjannies when they see reported content in their queue. They request the admins to ban you for reporting under ulterior motive.
ModMail - Almost ANYTHING you say in a modmail (As a user) can get you permanently suspended in seconds. I've used this to ban TONS of woke idiots myself. Mods will report > Harassment > At me. Works 90% of the time, even if all you said is "Huh?".
Downvotes - Downvoting pro-LGBTQ, pro-BLM, pro-Democrat posts can result in a ban for either harassment or brigading/vote manipulation. Generally this takes consistency however I have seen bans for this within a 24 hour timeframe.
Exposing the Reddit Staff or PowerJannies in anyway will lead to a ban even if the evidence is damning. (See: CringeTopia's destruction for exposing Chtorrrrr)
Reddit will not action slurs or violent threats so long as they are in a "Picture from someplace else" format. This is how /r/Greentext and /r/4chan are still alive. There has been SOME exceptions to this: Keffals, KiwiFarms, New Zeland Shooting. I believe this will change soon when PCM gets banned.
Reddit will not action a subreddit for the AutoModerator removing and then repeating the word. IE: "Moot is a faggot". The post will be removed but Automod explaining to the user "We removed your post as (Faggot) is against the Reddit Content Policy" will not be. (If the inflection of the AutoMod's writing is direct in tone.)
Reddit can (and has) banned for off-site behavior. AHS uses this tactic regularly to ban subreddit moderators who don't bow to their ideologies.
Mod Action - Reddit can/will remove specific moderators of a subreddit for not handling specific comments/posts/messages in the way they want on a given topic. This is not an account ban, typically an Admin will message the entire mod team or the Top Mod and tell them that XX User is banned from being a mod and if they come back the subreddit will be striked. If you have mod experience, a "Approve" or "Remove" is a simple misclick most of the time.
"Hate" - Does not apply to: Men, White People, Rich people, Christians or Right-Wing voters in America. (This has actually been publicly disclosed by RedTaboo previously.)
--------------------Bans - Types--------------------
Shadowban (Type 1) - Most common ban. Shadowbans appear completely normal to the user, you can still: comment, post, upvote, downvote...etc. However, it's smoke and mirrors. No-one is seeing any of those aforementioned items. You can use "Reddit Shadowban Checker" via google or /r/Shadowban to test this. (Note: Using /r/Shadowban can actually result in your new account getting Shadowbanned.)
Shadowban Conti- Shadowbans are most commonly given immediately after a main account suspension. They can also be handed out temporarily to silence users for X period of time. Shadowbans were originally meant for bots/MLM marketers..etc.
AEO Ban (Type 2) - Anti Evil Operations is Reddit's secret police that is outsourced to two separate countries. One of which being Ireland. AEO bans for a whole host of reasons but are mostly focused on hate against trainnes and factual information that sheds a bad light on blacks/LGBTQ. AEO ban's usually are "3 step" which are the following: 1. (Warning) 2. 1/3/7/14 day suspension. 3. Permanent Suspension.
AEO Ban Conti - AEO can also choose to bypass it's escalation path and ban you permanently on first offense. Most often seen with "Transphobia."
ZenDesk Ban (Type 3) - Reddit not too long ago opened their "Zendesk Ticket System" to Mods and later users. This allows you to create a support ticket directly with the admins themselves. This is abused by the powerjannies to the max, they will screenshot your comment/post & removal and then place a ticket to either get you permanently banned or if you have been temporarily suspended by AEO, increase it to permanent. (These reports the Reddit Admins handle personally and is not currently outsourced.)
ZenDesk Conti - Zendesk bans, almost always just say "You are permanently suspended" with no message or notification of the ban or what policy you violated. ZenDesk bans are un-appealable no matter the reason.
Additional notes: While these ban types are unique, they can often be used with each other. You may have a AEO suspension that is then extended via Zendesk or you may have a Shadowbanned account that get's AEO'ed for The Hidden Rules.
--------------------Bans - Logging--------------------
Reddit logs your account and alts in the following manner:
Cookies - Reddit can verify alts via your cookies.
Cache - Reddit can verify alts via your data in the web browsers cache.
IP Address - Rare but Reddit can use your IP address to track your alts. (This is a manual process.)
--------------------Bans - Evasion--------------------
For all ban types, the following is recommended:
Clear all history, saved passwords, cache and cookies from your preferred Web Browser.
If you used Reddit's official mobile app or any third party Reddit browser you need to log out, remove the application, delete any files on your phone with the name "Reddit" (Including pictures) and reinstall before logging into the new account.
A VPN may be needed if you have repeat bans.
Do not comment/post in the same subreddits right after making your new account.
Do not have your name similar, this makes it easy for someone like Merari01 to ZenDesk ban you.
Do not downvote, talk shit or otherwise interact with the LGBTQ prior to reaching at least 5k combined karma.
--------------------Bans - Appeals--------------------
If you are Zendesk banned you will not ever be granted an appeal. Period.
You MAY have a chance of being unbanned if you appeal every 24 hours with the same copy/paste message. Before my "GIGABAN" I got unsuspended 4 times via spamming the appeals team.
If you are shadowbanned, you will not be unbanned via the appeals system. Only possible via ModSupport.
--------------------Admins & PowerJannies Behavior--------------------
Powerjannies absolutely liaison with Admins outside of Reddit via Discord, Steam and even locked Telegram groups. Find a red name, check the subreddits they own/mod, you'll notice MANY powermods in the clique. This is often how Merari01/Bardfinn gets people banned so quickly, being close with RedTaboo and Chtorrrr.
Admins "Fake" working with subreddits they don't like in order to eventually get approval to remove the mod team and replace with tranny jannies or quarantine/ban the subreddit. This happened to: SJIA, Cringetopia and most recently LoveForLandLords. This is typically done through targeted "Warnings" in modmail and "Advice" which is actually demands that are unreasonable or simply impossible to meet.
Admins CAN edit your posts without your knowledge and Spez himself has admitted to doing it in the past. Admins CAN see your subscribed subreddits as well as your upvote/downvote log. (One of the ways they catch ban evaders.)
The "PowerJannies" or "The Cabal" actually comprises of about 12 people with a TON of sock puppet accounts but they control roughly 80% of all large subreddits. They rise to authority via: Subreddit Trading, Hostile Takeover via Admins or other "Quid-Pro-Quo" behavior. Most of these individuals are troons, most have criminal records involving Domestic Violence or Lewd Acts with Minors (Not a joke.).
Admins/PowerJannies use propaganda to get users to turn against Moderators in subreddits that are right wing or simply not accepting of their ideology. Mods (Take KIA2 for example) are told bluntly that their subreddit will be punished if they don't do X action or change/make X rule. They do this to anger the community and make them do more of said thing which either ends up in the Subreddit getting banned or the Mods being removed for the sub being "Unmoderated." (This is happening to PCM right now.)
--------------------Trannie Jannies - End Game - --------------------
Since GamerGate, Reddit has fallen into scandal after scandal. Firmly planting themselves as the "Troon HQ". For years and years, various communities fought them tooth and nail on every little "Societal" change they tried to make, all of them failed.
Ultimately, the goal of the Trannie Jannies (Paid Admin or not) is to use Reddit solely as a American progressive left wing propaganda network to further move the societal pendulum in favor of their extremely twisted ideals of morality via exposure therapy.
Since 2018, they have been strategically targeting subreddits that were large enough to pose a threat from a social standpoint to said ideology. They became more bold with each and every ban.
Fast forwarding to 2023, they have banned almost every medium and large subreddit that either opposed or were otherwise not on board with Troon ideology or black penis worship. Cringetopia being the largest subreddit that fell for not bending the knee was the last support on the levy. In the same month that Cringetopia was banned the following medium sized subreddits were removed: SocialJusiceInAction/TumblrInAction, AverageRedditor, OffensiveMemes, ChurchOfTheCurrentThing.
This leaves just: PoliticalCompassMemes, Conservative, Kia2 as the last three medium to large subreddits not to bend the knee in totality.
All in all, the troons won. Reddit is completely destroyed and a shell of what it once was. My only advice is to backup your niche threads for your hobbies/interests and keep your kids the fuck off it.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad bit pissed about how all of this has turned out. So much time spent curating communities that were close-knit, where people had fun and learned shit and where you could speak openly in agreement or disagreement.
So much history will be and has been lost all in the sake of satisfying the sexual fetishes and power fantasies of delusional mentally ill men.
I'm old enough to remember the age of the internet where Moderators took that title to actually help the communities they were a part of and not to act like a digital monarch among his serfs.
At one time, Reddit was in fact one of the greatest places on the internet with some of the coolest shit to learn, or edgy thing to laugh at. While I smile to watch it burn as it is now, I deeply regret we couldn't save what it was. Rest in peace Aaron.
Anyone who still has an active reddit account is a faggot. Period, end of story.
Got banned for telling a clear shill who jumped into a conversation merely to parrot DNC talking points about "our Democracy" to go end their miserable lives
I still use mine for specific subreddits for games I'm presently playing. It's still useful in those niche regards. I'm too stuborn/30 year old boomer to get on the discord wagon.
Even in discord depending on your niche you will have the exact same tranny jannies. You can usually tell by the "no transphobia" in the rules for some niche where how you look doesn't even matter. I also have my tiny niches I love and those also get political. One I vividly remember was someone who complaining about a current thing that was only tangentially related and I asking why they keep making every single tjing political, down voted, muted and I was done with that. Fuck reddit and their tranny jannies.
So ignore them and move on. It's not hard to just focus on the non political discussions. I know, they suck, but they don't rule me.
Or, you know maybe not put politics in all? That's all I ask.
In a perfect world, sure. But you can't stop idiots from acting like idiots.
Very true, sadly. This is where rules just need to outright state: no politics or get kicked.
Then again, troon pests always claim they are not political, it's just common decency to pretend they are animu princesses.
It's a massive popular talking point here about how stupid Reddit is. Yet a post about reddit still gets 77 comments in 8 hours and has the most upvotes of everything in the main page. For something that is apparently stupid, it sure is popular amongst the crowd here.
Could of course be bots doing the upvoting, but plenty of comments from seasoned commenters meaning this isn't just bots.
I mean, he posted original content that is rarely posted here that is also pretty interesting and gives us a behind the scenes look at how reddit operates. Of course it's going to get more engagement than a title+archive link.
I make a new one every month to call some retards with truly atrocious ideas faggots on 2007scape then promptly get banned
They mortally wounded themselves the day they banned coontown and fatpeoplehate.
Everything after has been death throes.
I'd agree FatPeopleHate was one of the initial dominos to fall.
FPH was run by trolls, and they decided to openly defy the admins. When the admins realized how easy it was to ban communities with no backlash, they extended the scope.
That is why I never defied the admins openly, and always advised moderators in other communities to not blatantly violate the stupid rules that the admins set. It does not seem to have a good cost/benefit ratio.
This is true, but it's arguably the first time the tranny jannies showed teeth.
c/fatpeoplehate lives on
Reddit has the worst reputation of any site on the internet. Even normie centrists hate it for how blatantly racist it is. It has zero credibility or prestige, and in most circles you will get mocked for simply using it.
Just because it has another ten million bot accounts than it did five years ago doesn't mean it's popular.
Agreed. This is why people take offense when you call them a Redditor. They know that it's an insult and they know how insufferable a Redditor is. But it was a really cool place until about 10 years ago, which is when I closed my account there after seeing the direction it was going.
What's sad is all the other little niche subreddits out there that will soon have their own little taste of the tranny menace. It's culture will be purged and tons of informational posts will vanish forever.
It happened to fucking ARK: Survival Evolved of all things. Now of course it's a tranny janny circle jerk subreddit.
Search AgainstHateSubreddits for ARK they have it all documented.
I don't do the preddit stuff, just explain it here please.
I'm kind of convinced that Reddit has more bot users than people even could imagine. As far back as 2015, there was an entire front page community that existed solely to train AI in how to comment and post like users that has since vanished from collective memory. The biggest communities on the website can have two posts with tens of thousands of upvotes and comments, and then four posts down it's maybe 200 upvotes and twenty comments. The place is a ghost town, it really wouldn't be hard to fake having a LOT more users than there really is.
There was a guy on ruqqus who had developed an algorithm to find bot related content and accounts. He had verified it as being higher than 95% accurate or something. According to the algorithm there was a high likelihood that something like 60-65% of reddit's activity was coming from bots.
Oh yeah, I remember that. it was weird.
tumblr has entered the chat.
just saying, the site's barely relevant, and people still mock it...
They've been wanting to IPO for quite some time though I just don't see their revenue resulting an in extremely lucrative market cap for them.
Reddit is too easy to game. Why pay for an ad when you can pretend to be a user and use a botfarm to upvote something? If you're doing this regularly, use a paid mod and run your own subreddit.
It's just too difficult for reddit to monetize the value it creates.
I would imagine that for them to get some venture capital and get the show on the road they would need to invest in proper Cyber Security teams to offset that.
The manipulation of reddit has been obvious for a while. Back when I still followed the default subs, there were always product placements getting to the front page. The comments were calling it out. It's fairly well known that large game subs are owned by their publisher. I've noticed how left wing subs have 10x the subscriber count but 1/10th of the active user count of right wing subs. Obviously it's gotten worse since I last looked.
The only people that can fund reddit and profit are state actors to push their agendas. Like China.
Reddit since 2015, if not earlier, is a scheme to show an opinion or product and have plastered next to it a big shiny button that declares "Your peers approve of this content and you should too"
The accidental reveal that The_Donald was basically the most viewed and active subreddit by a huge margin except for /r/politics was really funny.
Being a business guy myself, I can sort of see justification for a publisher/dev owning their own game page.
Trademark/Copyright laws are a real bitch if they decide not to take ownership of things like that.
Reddit used to be very, very critical. It was good at calling out bullshit. It was a great way to deconstruct news stories to find out what was really going on. Part of that was no paid moderators.
Letting game companies manage their own communities lets them shape the narrative and that's very much anti-original reddit.
You can't even count on the sub counts being accurate. The_Donald figured out that they were almost an order of magnitude higher in reality.
Yes, that's part of what I was getting at. Leftist echo chamber subs have massively inflated sub counts, but they don't (or at least, did not) try as hard to manipulate the active-user count and thus provides a more accurate measure of a sub's size and reach.
Reeeeddit has the same problem Twitter had, millions of fake users.
how much of that has been from bots?
c/Conspiracies might enjoy this post, the top mod there has a long history with reddit’s fuckery (mainly TopMinds and the other harassment/brigade subs trying to get r/conspiracy taken down - though by this point they’ve already subverted it through other means into a containment zone)
Neat. I only have the .win for KIA2 back when it was originally setup. Thanks for the recommendation.
Would you say it's accurate that the troon takeover started when Something Awful users got together and planned the completely cynical attack that got violentacrez and /r/jailbait banned, or was it something else?
I'd more attribute it to the death of Tumblr where the "Otherkin" and "NeoPronouns" got their start and popularity.
From there, I attribute Gamer Gate being the "Saratoga" on the ideology. It had a wide enough reach, all the emotional ties of women being abused and involved something almost EVERYONE today is aware of and partakes in. This allowed them to spread their roots and push Reddit to install these "Hate" policies. Granted, people just believed the outlets instantly and almost no-one knows Gamer Gate was blown WAY out of proportion.
Now of course, these troons have mastered "Double Speak". You may remember the pre 2016 "Trans memes" where they post a random: Game/Movie/Book character followed by "SAYS TRANS RIGHTS!!!!". That was an ineffective campaign and got them laughed at.
What was an effective campaign however, was them redefining "Rights" to mean "Privilege". Tell the average apolitical person "Oh wow, those mean right wingers won't let me in their space!" and you'd get laughed at...but "Oh my god these mean right wingers don't want me to have RIGHTS!" will garner a lot more support from the generally out of the loop mainstream.
It was these 3 things in combination: Fall of Tumblr, Gamer Gate, Weaponized Propaganda in the form of "Weasel Wording/Double Speak".
Interesting bit of trivia! We all sorta remember Trans being "Transsexuals" in the 90's and 2000's. Was hardly ever mentioned or an issue right? On Reddit, there is a last group of strugglers known as "/r/Truscum".
They are Transgenders who HATE this woke shit and believe you MUST have a medical diagnosis in order to be trans and that it is a medical issue. If you removed the "Trans" out of the subreddit you'd think it's /r/Conservative. Worth a read if you want to lol. Reddit is going to ban them and Detrans (again).
Their control of language helps them.
"Trans women are women" sounds reasonable to a normie. "Men who think they are women, are women" does not.
But the right is so incredibly dumb that it adopts the terminology of the radical left, even when 'opposing' it. Don't use terms like 'misgender' except when referring to how troons misgender themselves.
Controlling the language is the strongest way for a dictatorship to control a populace. You and I can say we have First and Second Amendment rights and we know what it is. If you can pervert language so those politically sound ideas become "Say Hate Speech" and "Own Assault Weapons" people get nervous and want it burned. Likewise if you redefine a problem from "Why aren't you housing and feeding working aged adults" to "No Human is Illegal", it sounds a lot more palatable. It's good to be able to identify what someone is trying to say with slogans and spins, but never let your own words validate their twist, make people say what they mean directly.
As a side note, have you noticed a recent push to change BC to BCE? It seems innocent, right, just another letter. Until AD, Anno Domini ("The year of our Lord"), is replaced with CE, and it clicks into place: Before Christ is being replaced by Before Common Era, and In the year of Christ is being replaced by Common Era. Don't use their words, even innocently.
The Left controls the literal dictionary and all the major news sites. The Right has no power to label something and then propagate that label to public popularity, so they have no choice but to use the terms set by the Left if they want anyone to know what they're talking about.
I disagree. It costs the right nothing to way 'incorrect' pronouns rather than 'correct pronouns', as if what delusional people demand for their pronouns is 'correct'.
People do not care about the dictionary. Maybe on Reddit. In real life, people know what terms mean. And people know what racism is and that objectivity is not 'white supremacy'.
I'm not even on the right, but surely "don't be retarded" is not that difficult.
Hard agree, there has to be a zero tolerance policy.
SA goons have been on a Reddit since the beginning. This is one of only things we can’t pin on them.
Sure, but mostly transgender communists deliberately plotted the ShitRedditSays operation and executed it in a way that was completely impossible to argue against without being called a pedophile (by a horde of actual pedophiles, but that's beside the point).
Is there a good summary or video essay about Something Awful and what the hell happened to it?
I heard it used to be THE funny place for quality content on the internet. Then people got old and let crazies become Moderators?
The short version is that a website like that has to be run by a wise charismatic philosopher-king type who makes sure leftism never gets a foothold, which the original owner managed for a few years in the beginning before drug problems sidelined him and communists on the staff undermined everything and took over. The long version would be a hellishly self-indulgent, meandering, unwatchable documentary full of in-jokes and references.
benghazi dude, goons probably went from there to "slava ukrani" .. His fucking name was vile ... rat!
Hillary Clinton getting a forum moderator killed is one of the only good things she's ever done.
I remade c/ChurchOfCurrentThing cuz fuck those faggots.
"How can you kill, that which has no life?"
Yeah, it's hilarious. I never used to be as anti-gay as I am today.
You attack every piece of media I ever cared for?
You attack every sentence people use if it isn't handcrafted for you?
BUT you want me to respect and value you? Off yourself cuck.
This right here. All I wanted to do was talk about video games in peace. They had my passive support. Sure, get married.
They wont. fucking. quit. Further and further. Going after kids with a smile on their face and a spring in their step...
Live and let live is off the table? Fine. I'm sure not going to be the one to 'go away', faggots.
Conservative won’t be banned at all. If anything the mods will hand over control to the trannyjannies. The reason being that the head mod isn’t a conservative at all and has admitted as much on the Discord server. He’s also admitted multiple times having admins on speed dial with both Reddit and Discord. I’m almost certain he’s building up that sub just to hand it over to the power mods later on.
"has admitted as much on the Discord server"
When was this and in what manner did he do so?
This was probably a couple of years ago. He mentioned that he follows politics, but doesn’t hold any conservative standards at all. He didn’t go into detail though on what standards. The following year there was a big split in the conservative discord server because of how the head mod used double standards and him cheating on his wife by trying to pick up females in the discord server. Evidence of this was passed around and so people left. I ended up leaving because I didn’t like the drama.
The original people that left started their own server and the head mod of the conservative server banned anyone that’s part of the other server and banned anyone discussing it. About a month later he got a few people to create alt accounts, spam nigger and faggot in all the channels, and sent it to the discord admins before the mods could do anything about it. He managed to get the server banned because he has special access to the discord admins. We managed to get another server up and running a few months later. He’s currently in the works, along with Blue Politics, to get that server banned.
I’m telling you this guy has an in with discord and Reddit admins.
That was a couple months ago with Vella. Not exactly what happened. Jib does not have any connections with Discord itself.
See my username: Zodiac. I was an RCON mod for nearly 2 years, both Discord and Subreddit. Recently left about 2 months ago.
He does. I couldn’t remember if it was Cheeki or Cimmy. I can’t remember to tell the truth, but one of the major people to be banned from r/con gave him the connections. Vella was the one he was trying to get with. Then there were people trying to call him out and then that’s when the bans started happening.
The women over the years with similar accusations were: Cimmy, Chin, Vella and a few others I cannot recall.
Ehh eitherway, RCON isn't going to advance anywhere anytime soon. Kind of just a shell of what it once was. Eventually something will replace it, so say the market.
This I can agree on.
One of my biggest gripes about this network is the lack of PCM. Hopefully that will change soon.
No it can fucking not
Clean data and cache & use tor / opera browser or just reset your router if you on dynamic.
Posting real girl photos in tr00n subs and asking if you pass can potential rope several retards.
I left that shithole during the Pao BS for voat and never looked back, i bet subs with 12 gazillion users get less traffic than some boards here. Reddit was never the greatest place, it was a cesspit all along.
HAHAHAH, I've done this shit too after seeing the Greentext about it. Small world
why is even waste your time with this nonsense? just stop going to fn reddit. normal people stopped visiting and caring about that hell-hole around three years ago.
A few reasons:
I hand curated a few subreddits that had awesome communities and was actively involved in the discussion topics. Two still remain but I no longer have them. A captain goes down with his ship.
I VEHEMENTLY detest these troons ruining the internet and censoring people and history itself even. Anything I can do to drive in the knife I will.
I'm just flat out pissed at times, having all of your effort over a decade shit on because you used a grammatically and biologically correct phrase is nuts.
I have enough knowledge of Reddit systems and the troon warriors to potentially empower others to shit down their throat and reverse course. May as well share the good news.
They own the site dude, you're not driving in a knife, you're an ant on the picnic table stealing a crumb.
We stumbled on this as well, and when I attempted to explain to someone that this was not allowed, they banned me for pointing out that this was there rule.
Thereafter, this was referred to as 'the secret rule'.
Unless something has changed recently, they simply don't communicate. We've received precisely one message from the admins as of the time I got banned. They just remove comments that they do not like.
My memory is hazy, but I think someone got suspended because he called KiA2 mods faggots in the modmail, even though we did not report him. There are some keywords that will get
I worried for a moment that they got KiA as well.
There is no such thing as a permanent victory, and certainly not for a group with a 40% suicide rate.
I wanted KiA2 kept alive until November of last year, because I thought that they would become less aggressive in their censorship after the GOP took over Congress and started possibly investigating social media companies. Perhaps constituents can ask the new Church Committee to subpoena records of censorship at such companies for signs of government abuse. (Unfortunately, Jim Jordan is in the pockets of these companies.)
That was me, lol.
lel, if I remember correctly it was the troon which had his father capturing and torturing a kid, he knew but choose to say nothing to police or shit, or something like that.
I wonder if they hired him again
Oh hey Antonio! Good to see you again!
The "Red Letters" were a semi new thing that thus far has happened to: SJIA/TIA/AverageRedditor/PCM/Cringetopia.
An admin (Usually Chtorrr or CookiesNomNom) would pull the AEO removals from like a MONTH or two back and claim the mods needed to action this in X way or ELSE!
Another common one was "An increase an AEO violations!" where there was no measurable increase in Content Policy violating items.
Yes, there are certain key words that can trigger it. Though, Modmail is by far the easiest way to get someone banned. They say anything even SLIGHTLY aggressive and the mods can report for harassment and get the user suspended.
Why bother cucking to the admins? Just ignore them and if they ban the subreddit, so be it.
The alternative is a cucked and crippled subreddit which is not operating as intended.
I'd rather a bright candle which lasts a day, than non-functioning candle that lasts a lifetime.
Yeah it was that pedo chtorrr that was constantly down our backs
Chtorr suspended one of our mods for banning a self declared pedophile because they were also a tranny. They're either a pedo or an apologist
Hmm... I think we sorta had that experience. Some admin showed up and pointed to some (indisputable, unfortunately) violations that a mod had approved, and said that we shouldn't do that. Good thing was that I had already instructed that mod that these approvals were in error after AEO took them down, so I could point the admin to that.
They just remove more stuff.
Mods are more protected than troons. Not sure if it applies to mods of based subs as well, because I never tried to get anyone banned for modmails.
Yep, that's one way they do it to remove mods.
In these cases they didn't even do that. The whole purpose we could gather was just to create the "Illusion" of giving the subreddits a fair chance. They would never respond to questions for clarification or assistance. It was just to create a paper trail to get other Reddit staff to buy into a quarantine/ban.
On SJIA it was extremely hilarious. We'd get the typical tranny or woke idiot saying dumb shit in modmail. Click report > Harassment > At me. Banned within 12 hours everytime.
I am familiar with that as well. They banned sjwhate with that. Did you know what their justification was? Comments approving of a father who beat to death a man who raped his daughter. They're quite open about what they are.
LOL. Incredible. Talking about a caste system.
See the following by anti-trust ringleader Matt Stoller and GG.
While they are both on the left, they have not been hesitant to praise GOP pols who actually support cracking down on Big Tech, like Ken Buck:
Reddit is slow motion tumblr.
Before I gave up entirely one strange thing that happened was when I said "your identity isn't valid" in response to some 'they/them' faggot on PCM. I got a suspension from PCM, of course. Followed by a suspension from Reddit wholesale. Standard procedure. But then the comment was removed by the admins. Not a normal removal, mind you, but it was scrubbed completely. I couldn't see it in my profile, and even sites like reveddit had it removed from the archive. Then I got a permanent account suspension for good measure.
Replying a little late but yeah, this is 100% a ZenDesk scenario.
Likely a powerjannie saw it, scanned your profile.
Bardfinn and a few others run something called "Mass Tagger" which is basically the social registry for the troon higher up's. Anyone can tag and others can review. We're talking a catalog of 10's of thousands of users they have tagged "Transphobic" or "/r/KIA2 user"..etc.
Likely had you tagged, waited on you to post this then escalated it to the secret admin/powerjannie Discord (Now a Telegram) or did a Zendesk ticket.
The last paragraph really hit home. I've been a moderator of many different communities. I broke my teeth in the BBS era ... yes ... dialup ... I was a system operator/admin of a small BBS in Denver back in the day.
Some others were disparate and esoteric, and some were what this community would never approve of, simply to learn. I always played true Neutral ... but I can no longer.
Reddit is the Rome of the Internet. And the troonplatoon are the barbarians that were let in.
Depends on what you consider a "Nuke" I suppose.
In terms of them just mass banning ALL Conservative or non-progressive subs that won't ever happen until after they IPO and if their shareholders support it.
Now, doing a hostile takeover of the mod teams and turning it into a "Conservative - But loves gays!!!" just a matter of months at this point.
It all really depends on how far each Subreddit is willing to tow the Reddit line and how much the users of those subreddits are willing to comply with Reddit and by extension their own mod teams asks.
For example, Conservative moderates from the perspective of the most triggered SJW leftist because they believe (Reasonably) that having a Conservative presence in the space is more important than absolutism on issues. They likely won't be banned.
It already happened. I saw it first hand with r/thedonald, and later thedonald.win until the userbase basically self-destructed over a short time from 1/6/21 to 1/21/21, after which I checked out.
"We have the best gays, yes we do!" "Muh Based Blacks!!1!" ... and so on.
They still survive as patriots.win, but it is a shell of what it once was. I know you were posting about reddit, but oh well.
Yeah I mean that's kind of why in the end I said I regret we didn't safeguard what Reddit was.
We have handed control of the internet to these disgusting creatures. As the largest online titans of the golden age for free speech and expression fell off they were not met with thundering roar of resistance but complete silence.
Those of us alive pre-internet weren't really raised with smart devices and the internet, hell even 90's kids didn't grow up with the internet readily available. By not doing something about this shit we have effectively given them a brainwashing tool to keep grooming the future generations into their vision as the internet is almost a requirement now-a-days.
We didn't take our fight against them into meatspace. We projected our reasonableness onto them, and they took advantage of it. We still played by rules, they did not. Worst of all, we would not stoop to their level.
If you spot one someplace you have total dominion, come down on them so hard you leave a fucking grease spot. Don't be subtle, don't be polite, nuke them loudly and publicly, and if anyone gripes, nuke them too.
This will eventually be a fight over indoor plumbing, just you watch.
Not a worry in the real world.
These people are looked down upon in the real world pretty much everywhere. Even in the heart of San Francisco I've seen troons get 86'ed for being disgusting.
They only hold "power" among the youth and online communities. It's why they are pushing so hard for laws to "protect" them.
More like shared liberal values with them so kept downplaying the shit. That's what the vast majority of people admit when you drag it out of them
And now we know. Assuming that your opposition has a soul and is capable of reason is a luxury, not a right during battle.
do the needful poo in the loo
Man tell me about it. They hold gays, trans & blacks like golden calves.
Also, as someone who watch their hometown turn into Mexico Del Norte in real time, the one thing that angered me more than "based gays" and "based blacks" was seeing frequent posts of "based latinos". No amount of Cuban and Venezuelan testimonies is worth watching entire chunks of town (if not entire cities) shift from bilingual at worst to only Spanish.
Agreed. It was heartbreaking to see rural Texas towns go from barely-hanging-on silent generation holdouts to Basically Mexico in a 20 year span.
I talked with the Donald mods pre the admin sponsored switch and they started banning people for that shit then the admins tossed them all and it spiked up even worse
pedes are plebs
Today I got banned from JusticeServed, a community I've never used, for a comment on Conservative. Edited my comment to include the fact this happened, and the Conservative mods deleted my comment entirely in response.
They conserve nothing. As usual. Need to look... farther right...
The comment in question was pointing out that multiple blue states effectively legalized spreading HIV intentionally. Why? Aren't they proud of that? Apparently not.
/r/Walkaway, /r/BidenShitShow and a host of other ones are all owned by the same core 6 people. Don't get me wrong, the top mod she is nice but I wouldn't call her or her mods Conservative by any measure. They lean Libertarian Socialist for the most part.
Likely too small for the radar currently.
I never had a reddit account. I didn't need one to read the few topics I cared about.
And reading this, I'm kinda glad I never made one.
Yeah i got got by this. I said antifa and knife in a statement that was otherwise non violent, not actually referring to knife violence at all. The actual sense of the message didn't matter
You forgot the rate limiting button. Accounts put on forever ten minute timeout for butt blasting some janny.
