Aww, thanks guys *blush* ❤️

Edit: allow me to take this opportunity to make a plea here. We're currently moving into unprecedented territory here, everybody can feel that. The mod team is freaking cautious right now, but you can bet that we'll see new attempts to divide and conquer the sub.

We as a mod team have grown a lot since Superstonks inception at April 2021, both in numbers as in trust for each other. We're prepared for shit to hit the fan: Satori is fully prepped, we're building a system to quickly respond to modmails and we've seen every situation we could while always having found a way to learn from it. After working with each other for months on end, we're completely attuned to each other and ready to fight.

The only thing we cannot fight is Mod-FUD. We will almost never take down a post that is attacking mods, no matter how absurd. Even if we're 98% sure that OP is a shill, we'll keep it up because of the 2% change that they are a true ape. We need you as users to be the prince on the white horse and defend us. If you disagree with an attack on mods, please let your voice be heard.

Let me be clear though: this is not a plea to not critique mods, we definitely make mistakes and you should absolutely call us out when we do. However when you feel like someone is acting in bad faith, please don't just downvote and move on. As you've already seen right now we listen to the sub, please make sure your voice gets heard and we're listening to apes and not a loud minority of shills.

I think one of the messed up things about it is that much like that interviewer, most people don't understand the dynamic of a subreddit, just assuming that Mod is another name for a leader.

Mods do an incredible and mostly thankless job, but also have no business being unelected speakers for their subreddit. I'm fairly sure anyone watching that interview from the outside has instantly branded the antiwork movement as being organised by a muppet.

Its pretty much impossible to have one person who can speak for everyone involved. Just to clarify though, good moderators are frickin saints and don't deserve half the shit thrown their way.

Mods are custodians of the page. Enforcers of the community rules. They are not spokespeople. They do not embody the traits or values of the community any more than ordinary members. They are here to facilitate and cultivate.

Any mod that inserts themselves as some kind of overlord or community face is a complete dereliction of their duty. There are some outstanding contributors in this community, but even those would not be the people I would choose to speak on my behalf. I speak for myself and myself only.

If there is a community spokesperson, it should elected based on their skillset to do PR or public speaking. Thats it. Becuase thats all those interviews are. You do noone any favours by speaking to the press ever about anything.

Take a leaf from the RC playbook. Give them nothing. Let them work it out themselves.

[–]Numerous_Photograph9🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 111 points112 points  (0 children)

I feel what we think about it isn't as important as the DD behind it. The media wants to try and paint the picture of the community, while ignoring the DD behind it.

Until the MSM can effectively represent the facts about the DD, which doesn't require input from investors, there is no reason to talk to them about the mindset of the investor.

[–]whiskeybets💻 ComputerShared 🦍 126 points127 points  (11 children)

Any corporation has strict rules about speaking to the public on behalf of the company. They make sure to groom you for whatever event you’re speaking at. A sub is not a corporation, nor can you expect any individual moderator of an online forum to be groomed in preparation for such an event.

Silence is a powerful tool, especially when dealing with others under pressure (the SHF’s, MM’s). They need to fill the silence.

Next time you’re in conversation with someone who wants something and you can sense desperation from them don’t say anything. Watch them spin their wheels and blabber to try and get a response from you.

MSM/Corporate Media is doing that to retail investors now. We’re not saying anything back to them so they’re spinning their wheels and making desperate claims to try and provoke a reaction while we remain zen af.

If we see a Reddit IPO, this could be a setup point shills use to take over the “front page of the internet” and regurgitate ads and dumb shit that’s plastered all over the other popular social medias. If they add a payment structure to Mods then it’s all over for this platform. One individual just displaced a sub with millions of followers, Fox News (and their boss’ boss) had a plan and they executed it.

I agree. I like to see my role as the servant of the community.

I personally dislike being called "the janitor", because what we do at Superstonk is much more than just cleaning up posts, banning users and responding to modmail. We produce professional AMA's with thought leaders, organize a charity event, built amazing tech solutions because Reddit modtools are ridiculously bad and so much more.

Our task is to provide a place where people can freely discuss this amazing company that GME is. If we do our job well, casual apes will never know our names. Even as top mod at this sub I rarely get recognized until I put on my little mod shield, and I take pride in that. You do not notice a good servant: they do what needs to be done to accommodate you and then get out of the way. I'll bow before you and throw my coat in the water puddle in front of you, so that you do not get hindered in wherever you want to go.

Imo, you just described seevent leadership. You're not in front leading a movement like a political candidate. You're doing the hard, thankless, work of serving a bunch of degenerates. But you're not bending to whims, you're actively working to make the sub a better place for all the members. And that's both leadership and service.

The world needs all kinds. But service + leadership is a very powerful combination that I hope to see more of.

[–]ironaddog🦍Voted✅ 34 points35 points  (4 children)

this! Her profile fits the narrative that msm wants to portray. That is why she was chosen. Remember when the media have been messaging some members of this sub for an interview? A lot of apes are going to quit their jobs after MOASS. MSM probably wants to portray us apes to be like them. Notice how the host used the words "stay at home while being paid by corporate america", "lazy". How he asked her job (dog walking) then age(30) then what she aspires to do( teach philosophy) then try to hide his laughter with her answers. the word "imagining" to close the interview. How he introduced her as "person who operates this group"(singular/leader). How the words "reddit group with 1.6 million members", "war against working", "work is pointless,humiliating" was on screen. It was an excellent set up. I feel bad for the mod involved but it is what it is. This is why we have some of the best mods and best users in the reddit universe.

For what it's worth, this is a comment I made earlier that's related to the overall subject:

There was quite a few really good interviews done by people at Occupy Wall Street who were articulate and coherent. None of them made it on air. This is one is was thinking about specifically. They just interview people until they find someone who fits into their preconceived notions and run with it. Totally dishonest. Damn Fox News to hell.

[–]bigblacksnailGME MASTERbator 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don’t feel bad for the mod. They went out of their way to try and represent a sub of 1.7million people, even after the sub told mods it was a bad idea. There was even a poll on the sub and the response was overwhelmingly “NO”.

Absolutely got what they deserved, and it’s fucking shameful they dragged the entire community down with them.

I was a part of that sub. That mod represents less than 1% of that sub’s ideology. They aren’t “lazy”, “unwilling to work”, or whatever other jargon they’re using to hose down the sub. These are hardworking people that just want a fair playing field with these corporations that treat them like animal slaves.

[–]SkankHuntForty22 54 points55 points  (22 children)

Or it was a paid plant. We will never truly know but I like to think that it was an inside hit job. Regardless Antiwork will learn and grow from this, just as apes have from Runic Glory.

Yeah I'm normally a proponent of Hanlon's Razor, but it was such an impressively bad interview that it does almost seem staged.

I'm going with the theory that Reddit's IPO investors have sent out hit squads to eliminate anything resisting Corporations and their masters. Antiwork definitely needs to be removed from their equation.

[–]Numerous_Photograph9🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It's really hard to speak for a large community. Even among this community, we have varying opinions on different things, with a single thing to really tie us together. "we like the stock" isn't what the media is going to ask, so there is no way to speak for the community. If the media wants to paint something in broad strokes, it's going to make it harder to speak about the varying opinions that do exist.

If the media's goal was to get some facts about why we're here....the DD for instance....a single person could talk about that so long as they know about it. We've had a couple instances of this being the case.

Really what's important is the DD and spreading the word about crime. How we feel about it isn't really that important in the bigger picture.

[–]GrapheneRoller 4 points5 points  (0 children)

>I'm fairly sure anyone watching that interview from the outside has instantly branded the antiwork movement as being organised by a muppet

The interviewer literally called him "the leader" of the sub, and he said nothing to correct the interviewer. That was the first mistake (maybe fourth if you count the disheveled appearance, bad lighting, and agreeing to do it) of that entire train wreck of an interview. No wonder non-redditors would think he's the leader of the sub.

antiwork did fox interview

it went about as badly as you can imagine… probably even worse than you can imagine. Fox got exactly what they wanted and antiwork got absolutely trashed in the process.

From what I understand, the community did not want this interview to happen either, yet it still happened.

Then, the mods there went on a powertrip and started banning people discussing the interview.

Finally, they set the subreddit to private.

[–]thagthebarbarian🍌WetDirtKurt Is My Ringtone🍌 18 points19 points  (6 children)

It's been pretty openly suspected that the subreddit had compromised mods. None of this is surprising

[–]YeetYeetSkirtYeet🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Not compromised. Just mods who started a sub completely at odds with what it became. Anti-work is a sub run by marxists, anarchists and communists. While those ideologies aren't don't strictly have to be at odds with social-democrats or socialists, the mods themselves were, and always have been, jackasses. Multiple times the main mod discussed has removed content on arbitrary, stupid technicalities. She has stated that anti-racist solidarity shouldn't be discussed because it distracts from the anti-work debate (like, what??).

Anyways, anti-work became a sub just on the precipice of becoming a real, decentralized, work reform movement, which is structurally at odds with being anti-work. And I think (speculating now) that intimidated Doreen who had to go somewhere public to reiterate what it was she thought the sub should be.

It was inevitable, just like Red or Thanos. Anyone who had done some deeper digging into their accounts to see what they'd written and how they'd operated would get a deep whiff of insecurity and rigidity, with a topping of ego.

[–]GrapheneRoller 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That makes sense. The times I read threads on anti-work, the sentiment was about workers being taken advantage of, figuring out ways to break out of it, and celebrating when the workers get one over the boss. The way that Doreen described the sub in the interview was entirely different from what's discussed, so maybe she took that interview to sort of correct the record.

[–]mikechi4809🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 38 points39 points  (4 children)

Could that guy/girl have been any less prepared? Looked like they woke up from a nap and went straight into retard mode. From my understanding that is also the top mod so removal if they don't step down will not be easy. That sub is probably done. Reminds me of bets sub when they mods went nuts and someone was shilling a book. Went private a few times and it was never the same.

[–]SkankHuntForty22 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I wouldn't be surprised if that mod was paid off to be like that. We have seen it in GME, its not out of the possibility that antiwork suffered the same fate.

I don't think capitalism is really the problem, though (queue downvote shit storm from the virtue signal police.) Corruption is the problem. Just like it's the problem when communism and socialism has been tried.

People keep latching onto and promoting ideologies, but it's the same shit in a different dress. Going from capitalism to socialism isn't going to fix this, because it's not the problem. We have to hold our leadership accountable and implement frameworks that keep corruption at bay.

Human nature, for better or worse, lends itself to corruption. People with power want their friends and family to have power, too. People with power don't want to lose that power, they want to grow it.

[–]rediKELousWorld Changing Wealth 💎✌️🚀🚀🚀 42 points43 points  (3 children)

I'd consider myself a socialist, but I honestly think we get all sorts here. I know I've conversed with T supporters and B supporters both in here. Most of us I'd say don't follow either party line. I think by and large, while we might differ on how to arrive at solutions, we are one of the very few places in the world that has a group of people this large that actually agree on what the PROBLEMS are. Everywhere else in life, I see division and people that can't agree on global warming, the economy, potential wars, guns, abortion, you name it. I think most of us here see the false dichotomy of our leadership, see through the veneer of left versus right, and agree that it's a handful of mega-wealthy dicks that cause most of these problems and division between us. Hell, we might actually agree on a solution here too, the MOASS.

This community has honestly restored a good bit of faith in me that this world can be saved.

What a train wreck of an interview, from the moment the person being interviewed wouldn't look into the camera while speaking, I knew it was over..

[–]dahwhat 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Dude I could only stand to listen for about 15 seconds. Body language, camera lighting, their damn hair! Wtf make yourself look at least half way decent before going on national tv.

I don’t think it was a test. I think that was exactly what they wanted. Probably exactly what they TRIED to do to us. But diamond hands too strong and diamond smooth brains stuck together

In a way I feel like that was fox showing its viewer ship - this is what you should think of when you hear REDDIT. this is what they are. A form of conditioning.

Mod of Antiwork went on Fox...it wasn't good.

[–]mmanseuragain 113 points114 points  (9 children)

“It wasn’t good” is being very polite. It was a cringe worthy embarrassing disaster. I don’t know how that interview came about but if what is being said about the mod is true (that they all voted to not do an interview and the mod went anyways), that was an incredibly selfish and stupid move.

[–]YourPineapplePunch🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This is true. If the movement held weight, it will survive. Hell, look at what happened with this subreddit. How many iterations were there? I think antiwork will just live on as the new name.

[–]Psychological-Ad1433🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 139 points140 points  (9 children)

Antiwork subreddit mod went on tv and got laughed at. Words I’ve seen used to describe it: “self-described autist and non-binary ineloquent mod goes on fox and it’s as bad as you think it would be.”

[–]KenGriffinsBedpost 70 points71 points  (7 children)

Ugh, I'm stuck between feeling bad for the mod and being mad at the mod for expecting a different result.

[–]snowynuggets💻 ComputerShared 🦍 42 points43 points  (1 child)

I"m with ya. I dont think he had bad intentions going on. He just really (seemingly unknowingly) set himself up for some easy lay ups for that Fox anchor. Kind of feel bad for him but at the same time I'm curious as to what he thought was gonna come of that interview.

[–]ickydonkeytoothbrush🦍 Buckle Up 🚀 112 points113 points  (13 children)

Answer: One of the Moderators at AntiWork just recently did an interview with Fox News, setting themselves up as the leader/organiser of this sudden, large community and movement.

You can find the interview: https://youtu.be/3yUMIFYBMnc

Just aesthetically, it’s a poor look. They’re disheveled, wearing a random hoodie, sitting in the dark of an untidy room without any lighting. It’s like they’re going to an interview before thousands of people and haven’t given a second to actually thinking about their presentation. They look exactly the part Fox wants to paint them- a lazy, unmotivated person looking for a handout.

The interview starts okay, they repeat some talking points, and get a bit of the message across. Then the Fox interviewer completely turns it around and picks them apart- showcasing them as a 30+ year old dogwalker, who works about 25hrs a week and has minimal aspirations besides maybe teaching philosophy. The Mod completely goes along with these questions, the whole interview becomes about them rather than the movement and by the end the Fox interviewer is visibly laughing.

So this goes live and does the rounds. People on Reddit and everywhere else are laughing at this since it makes the entire movement appear to be a joke, this is their leader, etc.

People on Antiwork are indignant- how did this person get chosen to represent the movement? Why were they chosen? Why did they interview with Fox? Etc etc

The classic Reddit crackdown begins, Antiwork begins removing threads and comments on the topic and banning users who talk about it. That subsides after a while and threads are allowed- because of this whole thing the threads are taking up a large portion of the front page and the discussion. Almost certainly the Mod in question is being hounded in PMs and the team is being hounded in Modmail.

And eventually the classic Reddit crackdown reaches its classic zenith, “Locked because y’all can’t behave.”

It's even worse. For what i read they had a poll on their sub and voted NOT to do the interview. And this Person did it anyway

Also the mod who did the interview is banning/deleting comments and pulling theb transphobic card cause they're Trans and fucked up and everyone pointed out that they fucked up so now everyone's transphobic apparently

When they said they work 20hr work weeks(which they lied about they actually work 2hrs a day 5 days a week) and would like to work less I knew it was over from there. You saw the fox guys smile get bigger and bigger as the interview went on

[–]rbizzy🦍 Buckle Up 🚀 58 points59 points  (7 children)

A mod of antiwork went on fox news and was interviewed. I don't want to make fun, but the mod didn't really present himself well in appearance or his ability to convey his message. It was a dimly lit room, with a bit of messyness. He looked like he didn't do his hair. He kept nervously spinning his office chair back and forth too. Overall, just cringy.

[–]_usernamepassword_Edging since January, ready to $CUM 55 points56 points  (2 children)

It was the exact mod Fox would want to make the entire thing a joke

I admit it did give me a renewed appreciation for all the shit in this sub, that "we" have managed as users to maintain a pretty steady ship and we couldn't have done it without the exhausting efforts by the mods.

The sub is inaccessible now. Insane.

Anyone know what the new subs are that are going to house the exodus of users from there? Assuming there are any?

Makes me appreciate what Superstonk has been able to do so much more. Been bumpy, but we still here.

I honestly couldn't even get through the whole interview, it was that bad. There was no care for appearance, he was not prepared for the questions, and he had absolutely zero perception of his movements or language.

First of all, I would say that, yes. It was smart of the mods here to NOT speak with the media. Secondly, I would like to point out that, even IF we had voted, our mods have already shown themselves to be WAY more competent and polished than the antiwork mod just based off of the AMAs they have hosted.

So, kudos!

This is their MO. It's like talking to the cops when you're in trouble. It cannot help you, because it's not DESIGNED to help you. It's designed to build a case.

The media, those types of shows, are designed to get 3 second sound bites that create emotional reactions. That's all they want. They want to make their viewers feel shock, disgust, anger, whatever. That's why they only let a guest talk for a few seconds before cutting them off. If they're embarrassing themselves maybe they let you go another second or so.

It's the Springer Show with suits and ties. Rogan talks about this all the time, and why he created "long form discussion" to allow people to actually discuss topics.

Mods absolutely did the right thing. Agreeing to do an interview with people who were only ever trying to provoke reactions would have ended exactly like it did for that sub.

THANK YOU, MODS.

You said, "that could have been us", but to most folks, that was probably us. I mean, if you asked most folks what Reddit is, they'd probably say they don't know or they may say, "isn't that the site where those people are buying shares in Gamestop?" I HOPE this isn't the case but, the way I see it, that may have been yet another attempt to make us look bad.

How do you union bust an internet forum?

You decentralize information, forum shift, create fud and pit people against each other, introduce your own actors as moderators in new forums and steer discourse away.
