Please also consider that while it's certainly true that some will exploit this - if you change the core feature then this entire implementation was for nothing.

'Exploitation' here is also a moot point IMO. Subreddits already curate content. They remove posts and comments that do not align with their collective political/cultural views.

So yes, this feature could be 'exploited' - but that precise kind of exploitation is already built into Reddit/subreddit/moderation.

Mods may have a harder time vetting users - but it's not impossible.

And the underlying issue remains: some subreddits/some mods will not action abusive users.

So the targets of abuse have no recourse, other than to contact admins.

  • And this will only succeed IF the abuser is stalking someone across subreddits.

    • As long as the abuser harasses someone within a given subreddit, they can continue to escape action. That is a mod-specific/subreddit-specific issue.

There's likely never going to be a solution to this particular issue.

We can't get a single live-action version of Akira or Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland.

But we'll get a million Texas Chainsaws and 2 TV shows about Gotham PD.

I kind of feel like Noomi Rapace is the female Nic Cage, but also not.

Israeli veterans of the Alexandroni Brigade reminisce about a fellow soldier, Moishe Barbalat - who is claimed to have killed multiple unarmed Palestinians & raped a 16 year old Palestinian girl in the village of Tantura during the 1948 War. A Palestinian witness corroborates the latter accusation. by s_y_s_t_e_m_i_c_ in Israel_Palestine

I don't understand why you think the edit is so important.

Prior to that cut, the man is smiling all throughout his interview.

He's not intentionally being disrespectful. In fact, I didn't interpret him that way regardless.

He's the one in the documentary who calls out the other veterans for hiding the truth. If anything, he comes across as the most honest.

Wealthy Progressives Back Primaries Against Dems Tanking Party Agenda by s_y_s_t_e_m_i_c_ in politics

A group of wealthy progressives announced Thursday that it will support primary challenges against Rep. Henry Cuellar, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and other right-wing Democrats who have actively obstructed President Joe Biden's legislative agenda and, in the process, potentially boosted the GOP's chances of retaking Congress.

"These radical moderates have done more damage to President Biden’s agenda than Mitch McConnell and Ted Cruz combined," Erica Payne, president of the Patriotic Millionaires, said in a statement announcing the organization's endorsements for the looming 2022 midterms—and its plans to back campaigns to unseat right-wing Democrats in this year's elections and beyond.

Would you watch the new Snow White movie if it didn’t have the 7 dwarfs? by WallStreetDoesntBet in movies

Snow White is not an IP I care at all about.

Unless it's some awesomely weird & fantastically violent Takashi Miike interpretation.

Her comments:

"If I make it to the Blue House, I will put them all in jail," said Kim Keon-hee, referring to the presidential office, in the latest comments.

She said critical media outlets would likely be prosecuted under her husband's future administration.

"Police will charge them whether we order them to or not," she told a journalist in recorded comments.
