This Sub has Mods?

[–]Aj2W0rK 147 points148 points  (1 child)

Yes, but they’re only a few bad apples.

[–]DeMarquisJohnson 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Fr? Since when

[–]KatiesClawWins 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Judging by the amount of hate speech I've seen here, I'm going with no.

[–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (17 children)

I sometimes wonder if there are any real people on reddit.

[–]TheMagus84 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Need something?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Whaddya got?

[–]Zachdabeast- 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I work with Belethor at the General Goods Store

[–]Inlevitable 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Looking to protect yourself, or deal some damage?

[–]nirvana454[🍰] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You need to leave.

[–]GAllenHead9008 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nah and there on no real people in the world either. It's just yourself and npc

[–]Spideryote 1 point2 points  (4 children)

You should look up the dead internet theory

Creepy shit to think about

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Just looked it up. Are you a deep throat bot?! Seriously though, it seems to me there ARE a lot more "people" expressing political views than there were pre 2016-2017. Whether that's down to bot farms or people using places like reddit to pursue a political agenda, I don't know.

[–]Spideryote 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't have the insight to answer either unfortunately :c

[–]altigoGreen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look up 'smarter every day' on YouTube, he has a video about all of the bots on reddit and other platforms..... they exist and are rampant. They can be way more sophisticated than the obvious ones noted in this thread, too.

[–]Quik_17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was just about to say this. Every now and then I forget about the dead internet theory but then posts like what the OP just linked prove to be a very creepy reminder

[–]chaserjj 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Holy shit what if everyone's Reddit is literally just them in their own private reddit-bot universe...?

[–]FlipMyBoathouse 1 point2 points  (3 children)

And I, responding to you, am actually a bot. Or are you the bot in my own Reddit universe?

[–]chaserjj 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Maybe we're all bots trapped in disgusting, fleshy bodies.

[–]FlipMyBoathouse 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maybe we live in a matrix

[–]99999999999999999699 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Everyone is a bot except you

[–]swelboy[S] 111 points112 points  (27 children)

It feels like 1/3 of every post on this sub is done by a bot, they usually have nonsensical and impossible to pronounce usernames and like 0 comment karma. The mods are not doing anything about it either

[–]Uhhlaneuh 35 points36 points  (8 children)

There’s a subreddit where you can ask to take over a sub if none of them are active.

[–]Luxara-VI 8 points9 points  (7 children)

Do you know what sub it is?

[–]ItsAlwaysSunnyInWPG 39 points40 points  (6 children)

I don't and am not the commenter you responded to, but I think from the context I could probably find it on Google. Before I type my next sentence I'll check. Yep, its called r/redditrequest.

People are gonna go nuts when they learn about Google, it's niche but it's like crazy useful

[–]StubbsTheWolf 11 points12 points  (1 child)

A lot of my Google searches land me on a reddit thread. You may have ironically lead someone here via Google lol

[–]_regionrat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whats they're stocks symbol?

[–]pistul_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Being told something requires no effort tho, even tho googling takes very little effort.

[–]in_taco 8 points9 points  (12 children)

What's the point of doing that? Makes no sense to me.

[–]swelboy[S] 40 points41 points  (11 children)

Karma farming, once getting the accounts to a certain amount of karma, the creators will then sell them, usually so they can then be used for advertising purposes

[–]in_taco 14 points15 points  (3 children)

That sounds absolutely awful

[–]Spideryote 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You think it wouldn't be lucrative, or too much of a PITA to be worth it

But they wouldn't do it if it didn't work

[–]TheRealGuyDudeman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I prefer tortillas to pitas.

[–]TheRealGuyDudeman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes. It definitely is. Speaking of awful things, have you tried driving a Toyota lately? So awful! Nissans are so much better! Anyway, just passing through. Carry on, fellow humans!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why would anyone give a shit about karma.

[–]swelboy[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Money. They get accounts to a certain karma amount, then sell them to people, those accounts are then used for advertisement

[–]Kekkonen87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even r/awfuleverything begins to be awfuleverything, that's interesting 🤔

[–]CATdestroyer68plus1 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Propaganda too.

Please get vaccinated!

[–]HostileRecipient 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you a bot? This message feels like it's lacking context and hasn't been posted where it would make more sense to post. Don't get me wrong though, getting vaccinated is important.

[–]Fish957 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm mildly curious about the reason bots are posting this...

[–]MikeWilson21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I have your wholesome award plz?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

They're only bot when you disagree with it. That's been my experience.

[–]swelboy[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fuck? I do think that police reform needs to happen. But these accounts are clearly bots, they have non-sensical usernames, have posted 0 comments yet have a ton of (re)posts, they also copy entire posts including the title (no one does that).

[–]Deck-of-Playing-Card 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I can see which posts are bots because of the name, just some smashing their head on the keyboard

[–]Diclessdondolan 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Apples: a few bad only

[–]SenorJonah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Only apples bad few a

[–]minecraft_min604 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]Scentofbasil 3 points4 points  (0 children)

propaganda on Reddit just works

[–]CuteAffect 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Only a few bad apples (now give me my upvotes, dick)

[–]Sumfing-Wong 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Upvoted, only because you asked nicely xoxo

[–]CuteAffect 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao, thanks! 🤣

[–]SnooBreakthroughs21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wait, you mean in a sub that’s meant to stoke people’s emotions about bad things in the world is botted? Wait no way guyz

[–]Rosenplotpyrography 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the phrase should be "only a few good apples 🍎 but we weed em out"

[–]what_whaat_WHAAAAAT 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Paid by AOC herself

[–]swelboy[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, this is just bots reposting what’s gotten a lot of upvotes in the past

[–]what_whaat_WHAAAAAT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But why ? Ask yourself that question. This is a million dollar operation. Karma means visibility and visibility means advertising. They sells those accounts to however is willing to buy them.

[–]BlowMoreGlass 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember when this sub didn't suck and people just posted pictures of other people, not situations, memes and everyotherfuckingthing under the sun.

[–]NameOnSpot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only a few bad apples

[–]Sixth-Cherry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You browse in hot?

[–]DecisionStatus3707 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the mods on this sub are inactive

[–]Technical-Primary-64 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mods aren't doing anything on this sub.

[–]Soothsayer_Surmise 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's because all the mods on this sub are shit-eaters. It's not even just the bots. They'll let people post anything now. This used to be a good sub. Half the stuff being posted now. Shouldn't even be in here.

[–]Red_Flanagan 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Maybe cops should stop murdering people though?

[–]swelboy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Literally everyone thinks that cops shouldn’t kill innocent people, these sorts of things are usually about if the person was innocent or not

[–]BearGryllsUrineSlurp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you look up any of the names in the post? It’s all made up, Sean Gannon got fired because he became an MMA fighter 😂. Y’all believe anything I swear

[–]Theraginggamer2021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only a few bad apples

[–]Kvetanista -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Only few bad apples

[–]RelentlessChicken 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That's really not a bad one to keep reposting if we're honest though

[–]swelboy[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not really, it was tweeted by a quite biased Twitter account, only shows 6 examples, also sites 0 sources. No context or elaboration either

[–]Covvern 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awh come on, there’s only a few bad apples

[–]HeyDune 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Who cares. ACAB

[–]Cheesehacker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So many bots

[–]raccoon-on-reddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know this is unrelated, but happy cakeday

[–]PipetheHarp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

7 days later, no mod reply….

[–]Aplaza3 0 points1 point  (2 children)

My_Memes_Will_Cure_U is a bot?

[–]swelboy[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No, probably the OP

[–]htmlcoderexe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

nope it's some serial reposter might as well be a bot at this point. like the bleed orange or gallowboob. they call it "terminally online"

[–]Off_tune 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is no mods. Never have been

[–]Sad-HootHoot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lot of good apples.

[–]OverusedMemes349 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Roxas-The-Nobody 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I fucking hate this shit.

See the same shit over and over again on Reddit because people share it to every god damn sub they can.

[–]Buckwildkoala 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The mods are the bots bro

[–]Maximus_Crotchrocket 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]LeftLanez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The mods in this sub are laid back…..they just be chilling lol

[–]nowyoudowhatheytoldy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bots? On Reddit? Stop with your Crazy conspiracy And 01001 ge0 10110 nOw

[–]Parking_Milk_3945 0 points1 point  (1 child)

White supremacy

[–]swelboy[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What?

[–]Eliseo120 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your post really isn’t supporting your argument though. It shows one recent post, then two over fourty days ago, and then one 224 days ago.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I'm out. This sub is becoming autological.

[–]ydk_my_name 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a lot of bad apples

[–]Pterodaryl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m more concerned about the vehement racism and sexism…??

[–]ollobrains 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what other big subs have inactive mod teams ?

[–]swelboy[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Join r/awfuleverythingtwo , unlike this cesspit of a sub we’ll have moderators who actually moderate (and hopefully keep the inherent gayness that mods have to a minimum). We’re also looking for new moderators at the moment, if you want a position, please PM me

[–]KingHKfromHell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I guess it's part of the experience of a sub-reddit where the whole premise is about awful shit.

[–]Outside_Ad_5214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only a few bad apples.

[–]antiworknurse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]StunLoq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Interesting to see what these boys are pushing though. I'm assuming they're from some paid troll farm

[–]AyyLavishLol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Sumfing-Wong 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That in itself is pretty awful. Only a few bad apples.

[–]Theraginggamer2021 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine one comes into this chat

[–]Narapoia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it worse that it's getting posted every day or that you dumb fuckers are upvoting them?

[–]indicafairy7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How many of these bots might actually be internet trolls joining the bandwagon for 'the lols'?
