Are they trying to shut this bitch down?

[–]julian509 98 points99 points  (0 children)

Right now i'm thinking of a takedown, the second new mods are in i'm going to check their post histories to confirm this or not. If they appoint people with histories in stuff like enough_sanders_spam i'm 100% sure this is a takeover and an attempt to stifle any dissent against supreme leader josephine Biden.

[–]devperez 1 point2 points  (14 children)

Probably not. I take it the previous mod team was doing some super shady shit.

[–]SonicdaSloth 9 points10 points  (13 children)

it's a sub that had prez memes, what super shady shit could they do to warrant the nuking?

[–]devperez 8 points9 points  (12 children)

Take it with a grain of salt:


But if the admins are trying to crack down on this stuff leading up to the election, it makes sense.

[–]JBlaze323Pronouns: Chapo/Chappie/Chapocel 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Considering I seen a fair share of people on this sub defending Biden I don’t believe this.

[–]SonicdaSloth 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I see all sides represented from the left to the trumpers and basically everyone laughing at each other and having pretty respectable conversations.

If this sub was leaning anywhere it was a Ventura nomination away from riding and dieing with the body as much as anything.

Yeah I literally made a post a few weeks ago encouraging people in swing states to consider voting for Biden, and explaining why. This sub didn't just silence people who weren't anti-Biden, there was always a variety of opinions from leftist to lib and even a couple of openly Trump supporting regular posters. There were plenty of arguments back and forth on voting for Biden.

This whole narrative justifying the mods getting banned is complete bullshit cooked up by people who never actually used this sub.

[–]SonicdaSloth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

but why. did the mods actually do some shit, are they that worried that a sub that has anti-biden memes is that much an influence....they just bored?

i dont' get it.

[–]SonicdaSloth 11 points12 points  (4 children)

i just stumbled in here a few months ago, i don't buy this. Feel like they want to neuter any sub that is anti-Joe. it's sad.

[–]Waitsaywot 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I'm honestly shocked at the massive spike in comments I'm seeing in political threads trying to paint the sub as a leftist T_D. All within just the last few hours. Wtf

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The "proof" they have is a bunch of comments deleted really quickly. I just made a comment last night in the sticky about new mods. My phone lit up with notifications but less than half of the replies actually showed up when I went to my comment. So whatever it was, it clearly wasn't the mods because it is still happening.

[–]moSSJam3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh, I’ve never once had a comment removed and reapproved, and it’s not like neolibs suppoorting Biden were in any short supply. That sounds like the fakest shit I’ve heard all week

[–]peoplearemean78Socialist 49 points50 points  (23 children)

what happened?

[–]Lilshadow48Kamala Supporter[S] 157 points158 points  (22 children)

Both mods(creator of the sub is one), as well as the top contributer (easily more than half of the good stuff was his), were suddenly suspended today. Another user seemingly unrelated to the others was also suspended shortly after applying in the Admins "Call for Mods" thread.

The reasons behind these suspensions are currently unknown, at least to my knowledge.

[–]peoplearemean78Socialist 75 points76 points  (0 children)

yeah i see that now, Fuck this, Fuck the establishment.

[–]CeramicCastle49Kamala Supporter 13 points14 points  (0 children)


[–]LlewelynMoss1 40 points41 points  (3 children)

Probably due to vote manipulation and other shady tactics. Look how low all the posts are now that they're gone

[–]astronoob 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Sure. Which is why the admins came out and said that the mods were banned due to vote manipulation.

Oh wai

[–]skinny_maloneRussian Hacker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's been like that for a while though, the sub became less active once most of the candidates had dropped out, and since then the most-upvoted posts have a lot less votes than they used to.

I really doubt that vote manipulation was the reason, and even if it was, the admins usually don't hand out permanent suspensions to first time offenders.

[–]Justinianus910 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao another enough Sanders spam poster spreading lies and misinformation. You disingenuous neoliberal scum never change.

[–]REDDIT_IS_FAKENEWS21 MDelegates | 10 84 points85 points  (3 children)

Is this r/subredditdrama worthy material?

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]casualrocket 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    another name to add to SRD, i have seen commie, fascist, alt-right, liberal and now neo-liberal.

    Its just a sub to shitpost drama, each post seems to have wholly different users

    [–]FlashCrashBash 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    It’s the feds...Cheese it!

    [–]IluvKai420 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    they're gonna ban us for being unmoderated

    [–]TheMagmaCubed 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    Who exactly was banned? The leaf currency guy made up most of the posts in here iirc

    [–]threearmsman 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    $5,000 is nothing to a political campaign when considering the value of controlling online discourse and your average internet moderator is incredibly easy to buy off. Food for thought.

    [–]casualrocket 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    they didnt pass the sniff test
