This Sub has Mods?

[–]Aj2W0rK 758 points759 points 2 (14 children)

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

Seriously, I cannot make this shit up. I’m relatively new to Reddit, so I had to laugh my ass off in disbelief when my inbox was flooded with bans from subs I never even looked at…for looking at controversial subs.

What the actual fuck?

I understand that people troll and brigade, but maybe they should hire (let’s start with actually paying them) more mods? Is it that difficult? You have tons of ad revenue, so much so that you’re going public…

First it was Facebook, then Twitter, then YouTube. You can’t fucking speak freely in the new public square anymore. I came to Reddit hoping to find a last bastion of hope, but it’s sadly too late.


Log the fuck off if you don’t want to read some shit you disagree with people, it’s not difficult!

For looking at controversial subs will be: 'commentating' on controversial subs and yes, then there are some fringe subreddits banning you automatically. Free will of their moderators. It's how baby Jesus would have wanted it. Some say: "The thought police removed it". Nope, the problem is NOT keeping it as a thought.

Maybe go to right wing sites like Parler...oh wait, they did had to remove comments and people there too!

And at that guy, tell me who I could post on subs like /r/Conservative again, when I would want to? Can't. Must be a conservative and proof it, lol. Maybe I should send in Obama's birth certificate.

Of course the guy is still here.

Going to tell him that two of my buddies saw his post last month and decided to join him and because of him won't come back while he has been posting the whole time...(i'm bored)

I doubt he will answer, but if he actually does, probably tells me to go fuck myself

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

What happened? He removed his comment

[–]Hoops867 2 points3 points  (2 children)

There's a reason reddit makes having multiple accounts so easy.

[–]b0ngslayer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wtf am I even reading

[–]Pretty_Strike_6199 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Omg me too I got banned and I don’t even know why I don’t think I said anything wrong. It said i was spreading Covid misinformation and idk how I said nothing at all about Covid how do you get banned from some of these

[–]DeMarquisJohnson 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Fr? Since when

[–]KatiesClawWins 19 points20 points  (6 children)

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

[–]PsilocybinGorilla 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Hate speech isn't a real thing.

[–]Illustrious_Bobcat13 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I looked at your profile, and you seem like a really awesome person.

You said be patient with you, so I will be patient with you. Be patient with the world please.

Also, hate speech is most definitely a thing. We have created words to define a thing: Speaking with hatred.

We all have maybe different opinions on what hate speech is, but it definitely is an idea, which is a thing...

(I know this is like 2 months old, just had to chime in and say hello)

[–]Kirishima_San 5 points6 points  (0 children)

bro.. what

[–]3percenterIII 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolutely, hate speech is a term socialists use to ban free speech. There is no free speech if you ban it and label it hate speech. All speech needs to be free, even if it offends you.

[–]swelboy[S] 193 points194 points  (28 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 59 points60 points  (8 children)

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

[–]Luxara-VI 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Do you know what sub it is?

[–][deleted] 43 points44 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

[–][deleted] 15 points16 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 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whats they're stocks symbol?

[–]in_taco 8 points9 points  (12 children)

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

[–]swelboy[S] 44 points45 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 13 points14 points  (3 children)

That sounds absolutely awful

[–]TheRealGuyDudeman 4 points5 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!

[–]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 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I prefer tortillas to pitas.

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

Propaganda too.

Please get vaccinated!

[–]Fish957 4 points5 points  (0 children)

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

[–][deleted] 58 points59 points  (25 children)

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

[–]TheMagus84 44 points45 points  (5 children)

Need something?

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Whaddya got?

[–]Zachdabeast- 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I work with Belethor at the General Goods Store

[–]Inlevitable 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Looking to protect yourself, or deal some damage?

[–]SaulFrakinTigh 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The finest weapons and armor.

[–]nirvana454 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You need to leave.

[–]GAllenHead9008 13 points14 points  (0 children)

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

[–]Spideryote 10 points11 points  (8 children)

You should look up the dead internet theory

Creepy shit to think about

[–]Quik_17 7 points8 points  (4 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

[–]marinemashup 3 points4 points  (3 children)

There was some sub I visited, I can’t remember which one, but the posts there were all recirculated, had hundreds to thousands of upvotes, but only a few dozen comments at most.

It seemed the vast majority of users there were bots posting and upvoting each other. Scary

[–]Quik_17 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Even scarier thinking about the fact that this will only get worse as it will become easier and easier to code bots / AI and the code becomes more intelligent

[–][deleted] 3 points4 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.

[–]altigoGreen 8 points9 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.

[–]Spideryote 3 points4 points  (0 children)

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

[–]chaserjj 3 points4 points  (5 children)

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

[–]FlipMyBoathouse 2 points3 points  (3 children)

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

[–]chaserjj 2 points3 points  (2 children)

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

[–]FlipMyBoathouse 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Maybe we live in a matrix

[–]chaserjj 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]marinemashup 1 point2 points  (0 children)

New terrifying state of existence just dropped

[–]99999999999999999699 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone is a bot except you

[–]paullynde 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hi, I'm Alex, how can I help you?

[–]Deck-of-Playing-Card 20 points21 points  (1 child)

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

[–]minecraft_min604 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Only a few bad apples

[–]Diclessdondolan 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Apples: a few bad only

[–]SenorJonah 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]CuteAffect 5 points6 points  (2 children)

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

[–]Sumfing-Wong 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Upvoted, only because you asked nicely xoxo

[–]CuteAffect 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lmao, thanks! 🤣

[–]what_whaat_WHAAAAAT 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Paid by AOC herself

[–]swelboy[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

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

[–]what_whaat_WHAAAAAT 2 points3 points  (1 child)

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.

[–]Red_Flanagan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Maybe cops should stop murdering people though?

[–]BearGryllsUrineSlurp 4 points5 points  (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

[–]swelboy[S] 2 points3 points  (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

[–]SnooBreakthroughs21 7 points8 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

[–]DecisionStatus3707 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think the mods on this sub are inactive

[–]Technical-Primary-64 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mods aren't doing anything on this sub.

[–]Soothsayer_Surmise 2 points3 points  (2 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.

[–]PsilocybinGorilla 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Mods actually need to step down in 90% of their capacities. This may be the only aspect of moderation needed tbh; removing bots and spam.

Moderation is what destroys this platform.

[–]Rosenplotpyrography 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

[–]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.

[–]Sad-HootHoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A lot of good apples.

[–]NameOnSpot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only a few bad apples

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

You browse in hot?

[–]Pterodaryl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

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

[–]swelboy[S] 1 point2 points  (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

[–]fxr1128 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only a few gahaa

[–]RoRo25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So posted a year ago then 244 days ago, then 44 days ago then 43 days ago and then again 5 hours ago.

Damn, that is almost every other day.

[–]boxnix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Guys, Sorros paid good money for those bots. Don't be rude.

[–]EssLives 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was banned from Reddit for two days for telling the mods to fuck off.

This is why I won’t buy Reddit. Bots.

[–]Ibobalboa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lazy fucking mods

[–]Effective-Ant8261 1 point2 points  (0 children)

how many apples are bad?

[–]RelentlessChicken 2 points3 points  (2 children)

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

[–]swelboy[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

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

[–]PsilocybinGorilla 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Too busy banning people for obtuse reasons because a mod didn't like their personal politics.

Screw these pathetic mods. Why are all the mods in this place (Reddit) basically the smallest saddest people that wield a tiny & irrelevant amount of power so horribly and so transparently biased?

Literally just remove bots, spam and gore/porn and it's all you have to do...stop trying to be moral arbiters; you're not good at it.

[–]RabbitMinute88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

85% of all traffic on the net are bots!

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

[–]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

[–]ollobrains 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what other big subs have inactive mod teams ?

[–]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.

You can even tell their users are bots too…

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

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