We are taught to hate downwards. submitted by ParadigmShift to politics

Really? You sure we are taught to hate downwards? I was under the impression that in general, conservatives hate the powerful confiscatory politicians and liberals hate the exploitative wealthy business elites? That would mean we hate the big bosses of the other team.

Since we're talking about capricious /r/games mods, I'll add my story.

There was some story about GameStop extending credit to consumers, albeit with huge interest on deferred/late payments for people with bad credit (I don't remember the specifics). One poster was criticizing GameStop's move as immoral because the rate was so large. I explained that interest was the cost of using someone else's money for a while, and how charging people different rates of interest (depending on credit history) was both standard and necessary. That poster came back and said he still thought it was an unreasonable rate. I responded that for people with bad credit, they're not gonna get credit at a better rate anywhere, GameStop or not. Then I asked the poster if he thought it was better that people with bad credit not be allowed to get credit at all rather than have it at bad rates.

Then my posts got deleted. Why? Because the mods felt like it; I never got an explanation. Apparently it was off-topic to talk about the details of finance, but it wasn't off-topic to complain about GameStop or decry "evil" corporate practices. After that, I unsubscribed and have never been back. That sub and its mods can go to hell.

Doesn't matter, still got 400+ comment karma in the same comments section. I think they're self conscious, better not oppress them submitted by ImagineA to MeanwhileOnReddit

Unpopular opinion time!

I support what that mod did, both in the rules and in the stating of his opinion.

First off, if you've ever hung around discussions of Hearthstone long enough, you'll hear a shocking amount of whining and bitterness over aggro (aka "cancer") decks. You'll also hear lots of terms like "huntard" (because hunters are retards and still win, apparently). If left unchecked, this kind of attitude and use of words can be very effective at letting people blow off steam and vent and express what decks they hate facing, but it does nothing productive. Thus, in order to promote only constructive content, they banned some terms to make sure that people are only there to post useful stuff, not express anger. I totally agree that banning one word can be silly, but it's banned for more than just because it triggers people or whatever.

Also, what's the problem with expressing an unpopular opinion as a mod? Would you rather people not post unpopular opinions? Or would you rather the mods hopped on alts to post them? People say things other people disagree with, but the account used is hardly a problem here.

EDIT: Oh, and in case you didn't know, the main /r/Hearthstone subreddit is a giant bog of shitposting. You too might have more reason to want to ban disparaging terms like "cancer" if you're trying to take all possible measures to keep your sub from devolving into the same shit.
