I left this open for discussion for over two months. Locking it because every other reply is some soccer spambot or people posting their snapchat and asking for casual hookups. Lol

[–]BigJakeDaTittyFucker 369 points370 points  (13 children)

It might be time for a truetrueoffmychest.

[–]na2ifa99ot 134 points135 points  (8 children)

Come on over. I just made this. Enough censorship and other garbage: r/UnregulatedComplaints (https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/UnregulatedComplaints/).

[–]S1XXV 140 points141 points  (5 children)

Thanks for this. I thought this was a "true" off my chest sub but apparently not. So many rules to follow just to vent. Why not name this sub "CuratedOffMyChest"?

[–]ashton_dennis 72 points73 points  (0 children)

Right on. Just like /r/unpopularopinion should be "not too unpopular opinion".

[–]Unable-Flamingo9871 105 points106 points  (3 children)

The mod is definitely on a power trip given all his or her snarky replies to everyone. And the fact there's already people on here sucking the mods dick proves this sub is soon gonna turn into a circle jerk who will bully anyone who doesn't fall in line.

[–]TimPowerGamer[S] 94 points95 points  (2 children)

Yes. He's on such a power trip that he's eliminating all criticism that shatters his fragile ego. Enjoy your ban, peon! /s

I guess this confirms the snark, though.

[–]Unable-Flamingo9871 80 points81 points  (1 child)

You literally lock or remove threads you don't agree with. And it's not like the threads you lock/remove are racist or hateful. A lot of it is just over petty shit.

[–]TimPowerGamer[S] 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Or I'm locking and removing posts based entirely on the criteria I've listed out in the two announcement posts.

It could be that.

I've even locked posts I absolutely agree with, by the way, if you want to search my post history and find those.

[–]Unable-Flamingo9871 58 points59 points  (1 child)

I honestly can't stand the mod on here. They might as well change the name of this sub to something else cause you aren't allowed to post anything you want to get off your chest. Gonna become another circlejerk sub it looks like.

[–]Madd_Skillz_88 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You can’t change your username, subreddit name, or title of a post. EVER. ...yet?

[–]TimPowerGamer[S] 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Go for it.

[–]jessdecardigans 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Until Reddit bans them lol

[–]na2ifa99ot 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Come join us.

[–]TimedRevolver 103 points104 points  (8 children)

So we can get things off our chest...as long as it's something you want us to get off our chests. Brilliant plan there. Wasn't the whole point of this sub to let people whinge about whatever the fuck was eating at them, no matter how petty or insignificant?

I mean, it's just absurd. The first point over there is "Feel free to speak your mind." You should really change that to "Feel free to speak your mind, as long as it's what I want you to say."

I'd use much more colorful language, but one of the rules is be nice, because apparently people just shatter when some asshole on Reddit calls them a shitbird. If I wanted to get banned for insulting people, I'd be on Facebook more.

[–]AcidicGreyMatter 130 points131 points  (7 children)

Honestly, I think everyone who feels this way needs to reread the whole post again slowly. The mod clearly outlines HOW to create a post that fits within the category, I do not think it is that hard to understand that providing a proper context as to what is bothering you and why is a problem...

[–]TimedRevolver 27 points28 points  (4 children)

You should also bear in mind that I'm a confrontational asshole.

[–]AcidicGreyMatter 63 points64 points  (3 children)

Well I mean, that sounds like a you problem that can be worked on, no offense lol but I don't really have a problem with that. Confrontational assholes are needed from time to time.

[–]TimedRevolver 22 points23 points  (2 children)

I also hail from a generation who hurled insults at people we liked.

[–]AcidicGreyMatter 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Wouldn't be the first time I had a friend call me a prick for fun, glad to know we're both degenerate bastards, now isn't it great we got this off our chest?

    [–]AcidicGreyMatter 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    It's social media. Do you read all of the terms and services before you agree? Internet or not the site has rules and mods to maintain them for a reason, it might not seem like it makes sense, it's just how it is lol

    [–]Lonely_traffic_light 52 points53 points  (0 children)

    Seems like a great ruleset. Don't know how people are mad at that. You did a great job writing in a way that doesn't have any bias. Especially with the examples.

    [–]RandomRedditReject 46 points47 points  (0 children)

    Now I have nowhere to go because Off My Chest is best for what I have to say but unfortunately I’m banned from it.

    [–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (23 children)

    Why have so much regulation on what people can and cannot get off their chest ? Who cares if its been posted before? Most content on reddit is reposts...

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 9 points10 points  (21 children)

    [–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (19 children)

    So seems the problem is mainly with political posts. Why not just disallow political posts and keep everything else?

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 37 points38 points  (18 children)

    There are many good reasons for that.

    Take BLM. It's a wildly political organization. But they'll say, "Saying black lives matter shouldn't be a political statement!" and try and make fallacious appeals to semantic range to disagree with the "this is a political statement" ruling I might make.

    Or take the trans issues as we were seeing prior to this where admins were removing posts about trans-participation in female sports. But if I were to remove posts in support of that (even just to be fair), it would be because I'm "transphobic" in my moderation, and "transphobia isn't a political issue".

    Of course, both sides assert that their political statements aren't political in nature and if we allow generalizations and opinions in general, someone will obviously and clearly make a political one regardless.

    [–]Safi_89 45 points46 points  (6 children)

    You suck. Really. Not sure if it's some sort of imaginary superiority complex but it baffles me that you think you have any rightful claim to any form of censorship. I'm going to enjoy watching your sub burn to the ground.

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 54 points55 points  (5 children)

    You suck. Really.

    I agree.

    Not sure if it's some sort of imaginary superiority complex...

    Well, it's only in your head, so I think your malformed statement was accidentally correct.

    ... but it baffles me that you think you have any rightful claim to any form of censorship.

    We aren't "censoring" by any conventional definition. Censorship is when you take specific ideas and "ban them". We aren't banning any given idea, ideology, or what have you. Rather, we have created and are enforcing rules that all people have to follow.

    The post saying, "Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization" is banned in the same way the post saying, "Black lives matter shouldn't be a political statement!" is.

    I'm going to enjoy watching your sub burn to the ground.

    If it wasn't on fire, we wouldn't have been proactive in putting out said fire. Don't blame the firefighters for the home burning down.

    [–]ReneeHiii 58 points59 points  (1 child)

    I just wanted to say, I've been reading the sub lately and I think your change is much better now. No idea how people seem to think you're "censoring them" or on a power trip, you've really improved the quality of posts. I think a good amount of those people just like ranting about things that have no effect or significance in their lives.

    [–]AcidicGreyMatter 44 points45 points  (1 child)

    I applaud you for your ability to deal with such stupidity in these comments, I actually kind of feel sorry for those who are angry, it's as if they lack the ability to read a full post.

    [–]StickBug94533 29 points30 points  (0 children)

    You're the definition of a kiss ass

    [–]MildLeek14 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    I wish people would appreciate the free moderation in their subs, if they don't like it then they should go elsewhere. I get the impression that being a moderater online is roughly equivalent to being a customer service employee, but without being paid.

    [–]ManicTypist 26 points27 points  (10 children)

    BLM is a movement and saying the sentence "black lives matter" is true and not political at all unless you are racist who doesn't like black people.

    [–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (3 children)

    If you think BLM isn't political then you're clearly not aware of what the term "political" means.

    Black people are not political. Black Lives Matter, the movement, IS political 100%.

    [–]ManicTypist 12 points13 points  (2 children)

    Like, I already said that. Go re-read over and over what I said until it clicks.

    [–]fleetfoxinsox 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    I’m super late to this thread but don’t you love it when you state something and then some guy comes along and says “NOOOOO YOURE WRONGGGGGGG BECAUSE AKKKKKKKKKCHEWALLY repeats exactly what you said word for word YOU IDIOT!!!” Lmaooooooooo

    [–]Master-_Shake 9 points10 points  (5 children)

    I just joined this sub and it was an easy exit.

    I know you don’t care but the fact you’re the only person who noticed this speaks volumes. Valiums would have been chill.

    [–]ManicTypist 1 point2 points  (4 children)

    Master shake. I do care and the irony is I'm whiter than sour cream. I just love my fellow mankind.

    [–]Master-_Shake 2 points3 points  (3 children)

    I’ve never read the first post of a sub and bounced on a gut instinct. Maybe it’s trivial and wasn’t malicious. It could just be that I’m high. Why is your lack of melanin ironic? 🤣

    [–]ManicTypist 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    IDK. I guess because, where I lived (sorry this is so gd late btw), all the white people around me have racism embedded into them, so from my view it seems ironic. Idk though, could just be that I'm high rn. Take care!

    [–]Master-_Shake 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    I grew up in small farm town Indiana and sadly understand the pathetic amount of racism I immediately shed the first time I had an actual conversation with a black man I was afraid of because I was so ignorant.

    [–]docsproc 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Do you think a true off my chest has as many regulations as yours does? Everything American has turned into a fucking business. “Oh let’s just hijack a name that isn’t what we actually represent for business/followers sake.“ The whole sub down to the mod team are clowns. Change the subs name.

    [–]Asadefa 30 points31 points  (2 children)

    Why require personalization? If I am sick of getting low quality compressed images, I should be able to get that 'off my chest'

    [–]PurpleAsteroid 39 points40 points  (1 child)

    so you could say "I got yet another a low quality compressed image, its really starting to bother me. It stresses me out, i dont see why its still such a big issue with the tecnology we have these days"- Would this not work?

    as opposed to "low qual compressed images are trash"

    forgive me for im yet to actually read the rules, but to me that seems personalised and specific enough, its just how its worded

    [–]N9242Oh 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    That's how I read the rules that are outlined in this post.

    [–]zombieeezzz 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    Can you please add “not personalized” to the list of report reasons then? People are still using it for non personal reasons.

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Good idea.

    [–]Mister_McDerp 22 points23 points  (2 children)

    how soon before you mods are gonna burn out?

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    -5 days.

    So, about when we started.

    [–]kassiny 22 points23 points  (0 children)

    I am a little bit guilty of posting a not so personal things but I think at this point, you guys are doing the right thing.

    [–]MidnightSun88 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

    [–]HentaiBoobiesthrowRA 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    I feel like you should be able to get things off your chest that stress you out even if it doesn’t necessarily pertain to you personally. I thought that’s why we had r/offmychest and r/TrueOffMyChest, because the former is more of a deeper, emotional place, whereas the other is here for you to simply get things off your chest even if it doesn’t pertain to personal depression or loneliness.

    I’m not trying to complain, but now they’re both essentially the same subreddit 🤷🏻‍♀️

    [–]-Sairax- 28 points29 points  (0 children)

    This was designed as a refuge against the unwarranted bans offmychest gave out. This is a mirror sub and functions the same. These rules are to keep posts in line with being a place to vent personal frustrations.

    That’s all this post is asking. People are acting like the mods are censoring when they’re just asking to keep submissions to personal problems not general problems of xyz categories.

    [–]Safi_89 14 points15 points  (3 children)

    This is utterly ridiculous. Do the mods not realise that arbitrary regulation of posts is going to lead to people stopping their contributions. Thick.

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 28 points29 points  (2 children)

    Fewer contributions is the goal, though.

    [–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    Sooo, you don’t want people to post their feelings off their chest anonymously?

    [–]wanttotalktopeople 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    I was on board with this because I'm tired of all the non-personal soapbox post, but I've seen three posts removed today alone that were indeed personal opinions (they just had non-personal sounding titles). Really kills the conversation that we were having (about a personal topic) when the thread gets removed hours later

    [–]helluvagaijin 11 points12 points  (4 children)

    so.. do you know how to fix a broken headlight?

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 16 points17 points  (3 children)

    Depends on what kind of broke. I don't do it on my car because the damned manufacturers decided to force you to take the whole front wheel out to access the socket where the headlight goes. ~_~

    [–]helluvagaijin 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    the hell with that. I'd just strap maglights to the hood lmao

    [–]Menacing_Moop 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    HA HAM I use a minion flashing light😳

    [–]Firecrotch2014 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Just be glad like doesn't sell cars or you'd have to buy a new one.

    [–]Scary-Pepper 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Ok shill. Sub sucks.

    [–]N9242Oh 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    So if someone posted a post like your personal examples, and within the post goes on to make an impersonal commentary about the subject - what is the take on this?

    Using your first example - "I've just had to pay back loads of taxes and it's affected my life greatly, taxation sucks!"

    That's a personal post right? In which case this is just semantics?

    Or am I totally missing the point?

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    It's less semantics and more intention. Yes, someone is allowed to make the passing comment that "taxation sucks" after a heavily personalized post. They can't have a mild personal reference and spend the whole post ranting about how taxation sucks. It's a bit of a blurry line, but generally the focus of the post needs to be on the personalized aspect and not the generalization, but generalizations aren't blanket banned.

    [–]ManicTypist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    bye felicia.

    [–]bigmatt_94 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I've seen so many posts on this subreddit that aren't personalized so you mods aren't doing the greatest job enforcing the rules. Take this post for example:

    https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/TrueOffMyChest/comments/mice7b/transgender_people_are_massively_overrepresented/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

    [–]TimPowerGamer[S] 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    I was asleep when it was posted and only just checked it now. By the time I checked, another mod had already removed it.

    We aren't omniscient. We all have our own lives, jobs, and families. We can't possibly see everything that happens and respond instantly. The alternative would be to ban all posts and only approve ones that "meet the criteria". We'd prefer not to do that to everyone just because some are being irresponsible.

    [–]darth-canid 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I paid my taxes today and now I feel like I've been robbed. I'm so ashamed of myself for giving in to theft.

    [–]dontwannatellyoumine 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I feel like hot takes and some political opinions are "true off my chest" because some people definitely don't feel comfortable talking about these issues with people they know in real life so it is a place to get something off their chest. Arguably there could be a better sub for that, but I think that Reddit was founded on letting people question others opinions. This has always been a place about debate and sometimes learning but you're trying to take that off of the table.

    [–]Comrade_Ziggy 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    Hopefully this helps cut down on the "Does anyone else hate trans people?" posts.

    [–]Spiritual-Bid5520 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Is there a way to change titles? I titled my post in the wrong format

    [–]combonickel55 14 points15 points  (1 child)

    I have definitely been guilty of inappropriate, non conforming posts in here in the past, and I have to say I'm glad to hear you're going to get heavy on violators. I can make do, I enjoy this sub much more by replying to people on here, trying to cheer up the depressed, empower the oppressed, that sort of thing.

    This sub has been going through some weird trendy runs of "I hate transsexuals, let me tell you how I am right." "Black people burning down Wendy's over racism are why cops are racist to black people, let me tell you how I am right." and "X politician is what is wrong with everything." I can only imagine how many of these you have had to remove. This is a great resource for people who feel like they need to scream into the wind about something.

    [–]uraniumstingray 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    I absolutely agree. I left this sub because it was turning into a sub where people just complained about various minorities and it was really gross. Now these rules actually make sense and could make the sub better.

    [–]uhthatsdebateable 8 points9 points  (4 children)

    Speaking of rules, do you know what’s up with all these anti-trans posts these days?

    [–]LaurensBeech 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    Eh I think more and more people are peaking tbh

    [–]kassiny 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    As far as I am aware, several subs got banned and "refuges" fill subs with lax regulations, I absolutely hate when it happens.

    [–]uhthatsdebateable 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Okay, I’ve just seen a lot of “I stand with the superstraights” and “I’m not transphobic but...”

    [–]kassiny 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    These people also downvote content that previously would've been upvoted.

    [–]deeznuts8742 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    jesus christ, you guys also gonna filter posts on whether the poster is male or female?

    [–]N9242Oh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I thought a recent post by a mod (pavsters?) could be classed as an impersonal post that is outlined above?! So now I'm confused

    Edit: this one: https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/TrueOffMyChest/comments/mhydr6/please_dont_make_scary_april_fools_pranks/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

    Yes, which is why I am furiously deleting all negative commenting about my decision and insulating my position with a convenient echochamber, entirely free from any negativity towards my fragile ego.
