You guys need to really calm down. I really don't see what is wrong with using another site.
Whats your argument anyway besides "Oh waa they steal our memes! Abooo abooo abooooo!"
I don't even use reddit, I'm just trying to figure out why reddit is so hated here.
I think it's /tv/'s fault in particular. They pushed the Reddit hate REALLY hard and people started thinking it was the cool thing to do, to fit in.
Reddit's a popular site to hate elsewhere on the internet too, of course. This is because it's one of the biggest sites on the internet. You see a lot of Facebook hate too, right? It's like that.
i just gave you an example of an attitude the site holds
get some reading comprehension reddit
Rddit, Specifically /r/4chan, thinks this whole site is just flaming and memes. So they come here and do nothing but meme and flame on all boards.
Reddit has some good parts but a lot of the shitposting on 4chan is from people who came here after reading all those epic troll posts on r/4chan
Of course "go back to Rddit" is allso just shitposting
If you have the ability to hide posts using regular expressions you can use the following to reduce shitposting:
^(\s*>>\d+\s*)*[Hh](ello|i|[ei]ya?),? ? ([Ww]ww\.)?( [Rr]eddit(\.com)?|[Vv]oat(\.co)?|[Tt]umblr(\.com)?|[^\s]+chan|[^\s]+gag|[Kk][Cc]|[Aa]non[Tt]alk(\.eu)?|[Aa]n?[Tt]|[Gg]aia|[Ff]ace[Bb]ook(\.com)?|[Ff][Bb])$
^(\s*>>\d+\s*)*[Gg](o back to|[Bb]2) ? ([Ww]ww\.)?([Rr]eddit(\.com)?|[Vv]oat(\.co)?|[Tt]umblr(\.com)?|[^\s]+chan|[^\s]+gag|[Kk][Cc]|[Aa]non[Tt]alk(\.eu)?|[Aa]n?[Tt]|[Gg]aia|[Ff]ace[Bb]ook(\.com)?|[Ff][Bb])$
Newfags love site wars. Disenfranchised kids or mentally handicapped manchildren feel a need to belong. They need something to give them purpose. Given the popularity of the internet, they do this on their sites. Happened with Ebaums, Gaia, and tons of other sites over the years. Even fucking 9gag had to be filtered at one point.
So, losers like that who come on 4chan just love shitting on the other popular sites. And losers like that who go to Reddit do the same shit over there. /r/4chan thinks it's superior because they don't even need to shitpost. They get all of the funny posts and none of the bullshit that those lowly 4channers do! And their communities are focused and don't have issues like 4chan does clearly!
So, it's just faggots slapfighting online in the hopes of filling the voids in their lives and random trolls popping in because they find it fun to stir the pot/shitpost.
So, just ignore it. It's always gonna exist because someone is always gonna want to talk about how superior their site is and how shit the others are.
No. I don't even like Reddit. I'll be the first to say that I prefer 4chan over Reddit any day. Reddit's a pretty shitty site in my personal opinion. But I also don't go around on a crusade to find "reddit" invasions here. Because I don't care. The site is shit and how bad it is speaks for itself. There's far less free speech there than I can find here. In general I find anonymous imageboards/textboards to be superior.
But me disliking Reddit does not mean I'm going to waste my time on 4chan talking about a site I don't even like or enjoy. Why would I? I can be spending my time here discussing stuff that interests me. Why spend your time running around the entire site reading what users say and then having some arbitrary guideline that you judge whether or not they're too Reddit for 4chan? That's fucking retarded.
