It is just so fucking passive aggressive, and that is saying something considering that 4chan is a passive aggressive shithole too.

It would be fine if it weren't for the users. I spend too much time on reddit every day because it's a steady stream of distracting content (after I filter close to 100 subreddits from showing up). But I get sick of checking the comments and saying the same dumbass comments and jokes. They're enormous faggots, somehow even more so than you losers.
>>26174214 >disagree with the hivemind - instantly downvoted to oblivion >anything that's not part of the community circlejerk (IE - has a shitton of upvotes) is buried beneath all the other comments and can't be found, no matter how helpful or constructive to the thread it is >faggots constantly come here to steal our board culture >if you piss off someone in particular they will actually stalk you and downvote your every post for no reason, often bringing in friends >threads turn into popularity contests because of the vote system - actual discussion doesn't exist
Holy shit, fuck the vote system. I tried the website out to see what the hype was, and it's pure garbage. The worst part is they keep coming here to steal memes and repost them on their own site for ebin upboats and pretend to fit in here. I can't stand Tumblr either but they at least stay in their echo chamber and don't try to steal our board culture.
This isn't a valid reason to hate Reddit. They're big, they're influential, and they like activity and new shit. Shit gets old extremely fast on Reddit, and it is extremely unusual for anything to be relevant once it falls off the front page. The only reason the fine bros is still relevant is because they're making a lot of noise on youtube, and if you were watching the martin shkreli drug-hike thing you'd know that Reddit's attention span only lasts so long before there's no new shit and everyone forgets about it
Oh, I understand, sorry. I thought you were saying that Reddit's latching onto inconsequential, impertinent bullshit was what made you hate it.
I suppose one could still have a valid reason for hating that since it's not deep in any way and therefore doesn't tend to any end but mindless, superficial self-indulgence that continues from birth until death, accomplishing nothing greater, but most humans live lives like that so hating that is hypocritical for most....
Reddit used to be alright. The community posted relevant and informative content, and the moderators job was to delete spam.
But the eternal September syndrome set in with it becoming mainstream, about the time when it started getting featured on TV. All the subreddits started beating shitty memes into the dirt for cheap karma, and the content started going down hill.
Then the admins bowed down to advertising requests to tame the content down, and gave moderators way too much power. the icing on the shit cake was change to the algorithm that made posts be 8 hours or so old before it was even featured on the front page. It made reddit useless as a news source, making it a shitty entertainment site.
pic related, it's the censored posts that moderators flag.
>>26174706 >the icing on the shit cake was change to the algorithm that made posts be 8 hours or so old before it was even featured on the front page. It made reddit useless as a news source, making it a shitty entertainment site.
This must've changed, because I know the recent Kelloggs mascot blocking furries for sending him furry porn and flirting with him thread was on the front page when it was only two or three hours old, and the youngest thread I see on the front page right now is only four hours old.
>pic related, it's the censored posts that moderators flag.
Are flagged threads removed from the subreddit, or something? I don't understand, sorry.
Here on 4chan, all opinions whether they be shit or valid are treated as equal. Its typically not a giant circlejerk. I really like that. You have to have some semblance of intelligence and be able to piece your own opinions together. It exposes you to different ways of thinking, different points of view. When you have someone with an off-color or "taboo" viewpoint, it immediately gets swept under the rug by people who abuse the rating system to disagree with you.
Fuck that. This place may be filled with sociopaths and 12 year olds, but I'll take my chances here rather than reddit.
>>26174969 >I'm butthurt about you, but don't have an influence great enough to actually have you conform to the archetype I want, so I will reply to you over and over, succeeding only in prodding you with a stick for entirely masturbatory purposes
Again, I hope your reply made you feel a bit better about yourself.
>>26174979 same with LiveLeak. anything with a vote system becomes a joke contest. on Youtube it's anyone who makes a meme contest. i posted "wut am i reading" to a comment like 3 years ago and it still gets likes to this day.
Do you realize however that literally all you are doing is vaguely masturbating your worthless, unsubstantiated opinion vaguely in my direction? vaguely calling my posts "illogical" and "autistic" and shit does not in any way actually quantify and propose for me a systematic argument as to why the way in which I express myself is inherent evil. You're just a worthless faglord pissing his opinions in my direction likely because you haven't the capacity to do any better.
Either you actually propose some real shit to at least attempt to defend your shit for the first time since this over half-dozen back and forth post conversation, or I'm going to bed.
Small, relevant subreddits are ok communities. Larger scale, general subreddits are internet AIDS. Every post is either extreme leftist propaganda or literally ads for a product. Not even joking. Companies/ideologies can pay to get their posts slid to the top page.
Coward. I hope you're proud of wasting the time of the both of us.
I would say I hope you don't breed and pass your worthless genes on, but it is already too late for me to care. Enjoy your total and utter lack of argument, and inability to even compose one, or comprehend the true breadth of a valid argument.

So typical. Funny thing is, after this they consider themselves to be the winners. I don't get how can someone be this deluded.
>>26175464 Its good when the community is of fans. Look at /r/milliondollarextreme. Now look at /r/Yogscast. People use reddit because of how many people also use it. Sure, the 8ch board for MDE may be better but no one uses that.

there's a sorta really dry snarky pseudo intelligent humor that pretty much all redditors have that's pretty much just a total buzzkill
it's almost always based on taking things said as literal. redditors are like that kid that interjects in your story because you called a tomato a vegetable or something and wants to look smart/cute/quirky
>>26175641 pedants. someone on /v/ did this to me because i lumped a turn based game in with real time games of the same genre. i'm just like man.. i must be talking to a literal autist. these people don't know the most common social nuance which also happens to be a fallacy: ignoring the point to divert to some other bullshit for no reason, to feel smart or something to do with semantics. these people need to drink head out of your ass juice.

>>26174214 Why do you think the voting and karma system are bad?
>>26174254 The only reason why you would be persecuted and censored is if you're a stupid person who says stupid things. If that's not the case, and it still happens, it's because you're trying to stir shit up in a place where people don't want to hear it (like making pro console posts in /r/pcmasterrace), though then again, doing just that is an act of stupidity as well if you expect any other reaction.
>>26174283 This is only on major subreddits, and those users may as well be from Facebook.
>>26174336 >submit post >censored before it even gets a single upboat or downboat >invisible to everyone but you >no way to know that this happened besides manually checking the post when logged-in, and attempting to check the post when logged off You should read the rules of the subreddit you post on, maybe then it wouldn't happen.

You honestly just sound like a very closeminded 12 year old with developing narcissism.
>>26174342 He's right, though. A full on buzzword post is not very rich in quality.
>>26174372 >disagree with the hivemind - instantly downvoted to oblivion The exact same thing happens here, except there is no vote system. Instead, you drones just result to stale, unoriginal insults.
>>26174578 >stupid fucking puns This is the only thing I agree with. Puns are the lowest form of humor, especially if it's in the fashion of; >hey this word sounds like this word specific to the subject of this subreddit, if I replace that word with the subject specific word, it's a pun and therefore very humorous!
>>26174591 >annoying interface The interface isn't any more annoying than 4chan's.
>>26175464 He's right. Subreddits for individual games, shows, anime, a specific actor, place on earth, creature etc are a very good way to receive news about the subject the very moment said news is released. I don't care much for discussion on Reddit, the grace that this Anon gave to Reddit is the only reason for me to use the website.
That and shitposting.
>>26175590 Why are you randomly capitalizing words that don't need capitalization? Are you a German? I noticed a lot of those words are nouns.
>>26174979 Anne frankly, I did nazi that coming. I literally came here to say this but boy, that escalated quickly so to the top with you! Lost it at 'This is why we can't have nice things' and then my faith in humanity was restored, my mind blown, and manly tears were shed. Well said. As a 'murican, I can confirm this gem has just won the internet and is doing it right. Just sayin', I know that feel, bro, and while that was a risky click, this post was a 9/10, 11/10 with rice, would read again. I see what you did there and it feels good man. You're doing God's work, son. I laughed way harder than I should have at your list that seems legit and totally nailed it. You - I like you. You magnificent bastard; you, sir, are so brave, a gentleman and a scholar, and seeing how you are a redditor for 4 years, this checks out, so I'll allow it. I regret that I only have one upvote to give for this cool story, bro. CTRL+F "about tree fiddy" was not disappointed. Wait, why do I have you tagged as "NOPE NOPE NOPE"? Nice try, you monster. You are now banned from /r/pyongyang What did I just read? Dafuq? I read that as "YOU HAD ONE JOB". I can't fap to this. No true scotsman could see that this relevant XKCD was bad, and you should feel bad. You must be new to reddit, so I'll see your cakeday and raise you a karma train. One does not simply rustle my jimmies, not even once. Jet fuel can't melt dank memes, that stahp gave me cancer for science, so that's enough internet for me today. OP is a fuzzy little man-peach, 2/10, would not bang. What is this I don't even know how is this wtf? Fuck Jenny. Circlejerk must be leaking. This will get buried but brace yourselves, some men want to watch the world burn right in the feels. When you see it, they'll KILL IT WITH FIRE! But this has nothing to do with atheism. Lawyer up, delete facebook, hit the gym, and SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, said no one ever, so you wouldn't download a strawman. /r/dadjokes.
>>26175960 >The exact same thing happens here, except there is no vote system. Instead, you drones just result to stale, unoriginal insults.
Yeah, but your opinion isn't silenced like it is on Reddit. If you go against the groupthink on Reddit your opinion is buried, hidden and maybe even deleted. On 4chan if you go against the groupthink all you'll get are some pics of Costanza and >implying, but your post remains where it is. The discussion continues because opinions aren't silenced.
The structuring also plays into it - on Reddit, unpopular opinions are literally placed on the bottom of the page, meaning no one will ever read them. On 4chan, if you scroll through a thread you're going to see everything because there's no vote sorting. There are sorting options to fix this, but the default is popularity sorting and that's all people will ever use.
Reddit's formatting system actively discourages discussion and encourages appealing to groupthink with inoffensive memes or puns.
>>26176056 >but your post remains where it is Doesn't matter. No one will reply seriously to it except in rare cases. Most posters will look at the replies it got (if any), realize everyone is talking down on that post, and will then proceed to join in on that exactly or just keep scrolling past the post. It takes a very well mentally defined individual to not have this mindset in regards to stigmatized posts, and that applies to Reddit just as much. If I ever do look at comments, I have "don't show me comments with a score less than x" turned off, meaning I can still see comments with -500 downvotes, and I do always scroll all the way down to the downvoted comments just to put all sides into the same perspective, just like I do here.
You can't blame Reddit nor 4chan for this behavior. This is a property of mentally underdeveloped humans in general, and we just so happen to live in an era where maturity is largely absent from our specie due to the ease of access of a comfort zone encompassing our entire life, resulting in no life experience being developed by most of the western world, meaning there simply is no room for mature development.
>Reddit's formatting system actively discourages discussion and encourages appealing to groupthink with inoffensive memes or puns. See pic related. This would change the comment structure to be the exact same as 4chan's. I can't find a vote system disabler in my profile preferences, but I'm sure there's a plugin somewhere for this.
If the structure is based on date of posting, and there is no vote system for you to look at, wouldn't it be essentially 4chan regardless of the general opinion of these other people?
>>26176139 >They just parasite on to your favourite anime, actor or whatever then add their faggotry reddit progressive views on to it. 4chan users in general are much more parasitic and corrupting than progressive Redditors are, though. Just look at what this disgusting board did to feels good man frog.

Not German. Deutschlanders capitalize all nouns? Well, TIL as the reddit-friends are fond of saying.
Why did I do? Emphasis. So the more Main Points of my paragraph would Stick Out in case the anon I'm replying to has to Re-read my post again to Fully Understand the gist of what I'm saying. No, I'm Not subtly calling him dumb. That's just a natural thing I do and I assume a lot of people do. Re-read a paragraph or book page or article or what have you as many times as You Need to Comprehend the author's argument and thereby flesh out a more Well-thought out response. Sorry for the long ramble. I'm Lazy. Couldn't be bothered to condense it but I feel I got my Point across
>>26176417 Grammatically, all nouns in the German language have to be capitalized.
So you are just uppercasing the first letter of a world for emphasis? Are you on a mobile phone? I understand that there are some mobile phones whose settings make it annoying to fully uppercase a word, and instead go back to lowercase after uppercasing a single letter.
>>26176448 >So you are just uppercasing the first letter of a world for emphasis? Si, senor
>Are you on a mobile phone? Non, mon frere. I don't capitalize entire words because to me that seems overly aggressive. It would come off as online equivalent of yelling. And I don't yell. Bc I don't get mad. Porque I'm too comfy, hombre. /comfy/ is love, /comfy/ is life desu.

Oh and not patrician in a Mean way, as in "her Der suck my gold-plated cock you uncultured swine. Plebs.".
Moreso patrician in a Comfy way. As in, "I enjoy reading and discussing dense tomes of the Classics, philosophical literature and analysis of the Political-Economy.

Good talk, friend.
>>26176932 One of Riot's transgender employees killed herself about half a year ago, and half of the mod team on /r/leagueoflegends are transgender. I'm banned from all leagueoflegends subs because I made banter towards adagiosummoner, who happened to be one of them.
On top of that, Remilia Scarlet is "league of legends' first pro female gamer". She used to post in /league of legends general/ on /vg/, until she moved to Reddit (as all players do who receive any degree of fame because it's socially unacceptable to base yourself off 4chan). For some reason she is capable of amassing gigantic orbital systems involving even people who will never even speak a single word to her directly.
But yes, all in all, the mod team is incredibly SJW.
Here are some reasons: -Fucking retarded userbase on average. Lots of idiot underaged morons flaming and trying to get approval from others.
-Reddit is all about gaining a good reputation. That means idiots act not as themselves, but in a way that would earn them as much reputation as possible. That is - making stupid, unfunny, inane jokes which are completely out of context, shitposting, pretending to know something even though they don't.
-Voting system, as already mentioned. Any original opinions or novel proposals will get downvoted by a dumb, ignorant majority.
-A lack of anonymity. All your posts - an that you ever made - are visible to others, and are tied to your identity.
There are far more, and even better reasons to hate Reddit.
>>26177208 -Fucking retarded userbase on average. Lots of idiot underaged morons flaming and trying to get approval from others. Literally /r9k/, the rest of your posts are just complaining about not being Anonymous.
I can easily tell you're one of those people who angryposts at trip users.
>>26174214 too populated with bots, partly because the karma/voting system is dumb. Some people run bots in subs to instant downvote just about everything, if only once or twice just so the comment gets buried so the shit their comments can get more exposure. Not to mention some people are just total assholes to talk with like I was having a discussion about my job except I didn't chime in saying I worked in that field just dropping facts about it and started getting down voted like a dozen fucking times because I didn't agree with the hiveminds opinion.
>>26177560 Stop right there. You are trying to hard. Yes you're a reddit fag just admit it not taht anon but let me explain why the voting system sucks: You make a comment or a thread. Butthurt cults downvote you and go berserk. You get banned. No comment can be vieuwed for having a unique opinion which is the definition of censor. The website is beyond childish you would understand if you get your head out of the ground and see it the way it is. It is a monopoly on fora and a dictature/cult. It is nice for certain things like asking questions about specific things yet you will always risk that they will make it drastically personal. It is far more degenerate than 4chan but that's my opinion which would be deleted on reddit but you can read it and form your own opinion about it like it's supposed to be.
>>26174214 They lurk our threads, take screencaps, and submit them to r/4chan for upvotes and laughs. I actually took a look at the front page of said subreddit and saw there lots of posts taken from /r9k/, many of which I saw here yesterday.
>>26174214 I like reddit an lurk that site daily, if you dont like something you just unsubscribe from a subreddit, that simple. Not like most people see 4chan users as anything other than a bunch of edgy high schoolers anyway, most oldfag's with any type of self worth moved onto the other chans as soon as this site became mainstream.
DESU i dont understand why people still defend this site anyway, no free speech, site culture is trash, and it's been bought out by some corporation that killed moot.
I hate Reddit because a majority of my friends are on it and all they do is talk about it and then complain about the sjw's. I think they just stay on it for the praise they can get because of the lack of anonymity.
>>26175627 >Yes thank you I wouldve said this but I didnt know how to explain it to him.
He didn't explain shit, and you didn't explain shit. Are you faggots fucking retarded? Calling something autistic and other such adjectives that're correlated to negative constructs does not actually provide any logic behind why it is what it is you're attacking should be considered inherent evil. I could just as easily call the sky or the clouds an autistic faglord and tell it to get the fuck out and cease, but without actually explaining why the very properties of the sky and clouds themselves are inherent evil and do not have the right to occupy space in this universe, I am doing nothing.
Since the both of you idiots still clearly do not get this, let me propose an example. Say I don't like the way a kid's understanding of morality is. L I T E R A L L Y the method of you and your idiot friend over here >>26175590 is EXCLUSIVELY to call that kid retarded and autistic and narcissistic and blah blah blah blah blah. Do you honestly believe that spewing unfounded insults at a kid systematically explains to them why their understanding of morality is objectively wrong? Do you honestly believe that by calling a kid autistic and NOTHING ELSE that you've succeeded in totally proposing why it is your understanding of morality is superior to that of the kid, what your understanding actually is and its true breadth, why each and every aspect of the kid's understanding of morality is false and illogical and where exactly any broken logic takes place in order to edify them and have them conform to your philosophy with reason, thus allowing them the capacity to spread and successfully defend your philosophy from its roots to any superficial appearance it might take? No, of course not, because all you've done is called that kid a fag. He has no idea which part of what he is is wrong or what you believe he should do instead, because the word "fag" does not inherently betray this knowledge.
>>26175960 >You should read the rules of the subreddit you post on, maybe then it wouldn't happen. >Post content that isn't bad, then. >That's how you will not get unbanned. >You honestly just sound like a very closeminded 12 year old with developing narcissism.
Do you realize that you literally just told yourself that the mods are in the right in every situation here, despite no context being provided in that post, and that a mod's opinion is never to be questioned? You're probably a mod yourself and are sucking your own dick here. This is why mods are fags.
>>26174214 Annoying and extremely stupid users, most of them blue pilled sjw retards that when they see a post that goes against they take it down and ban you from all thwir subreddits, and if they are not that they are the stupid people with >lol i laghed harder than i shoul have xDxDDDDDD
Also, those fucking puns, dear god, THEY ARE NOT FUNNY
>>26174214 I hated / never used reddit until I found subs that are actually useful (job subs, niche news/updates subs). I don't really venture outside of those subs though because if I want to shitpost, 4chan is my drug.
>>26174214 It's filled with circlejerking normies that have never had an original, individual thought form in their head. They absolutely despise logic and rationality and will only do things that get them epic upboats, never stepping out of the comfort zone. Ironically, they all think 4chan is the place where everyone is epic and le random and an awful person and absolutely no discussion takes place here, when in reality it's their shit site that matches all the criteria.
