It is important to talk about reddit because it is important to understand how people have gotten lazy with browsing for information/news/junk, it does have a large enough userbase (at least at some point) to cause literal shit, demonstrates just how to manipulate, and influence people, as well as being a case study in tech bubble finances. We don't stop talking about twitter because we have access to gab. Hell, people still bring up digg from time to time.

That financial aspect is biggest reason why voat should talk about reddit. Another link aggregrator hubski pretty much implemented "reddit gold" first, but it is a more habitual way to get donations to the site. Numerous sites also have a "pro/beta" tier that is used to testbed features. They do have a habit of making a circlejerk for the cool kids, but merch usually isn't enough, and donations need to get into a constant stream because one too many 11th hour "we're doomed, and need funds" will kill faith in the admins. It is actually Putt's, and previously Atko's reluctance to do that type of thing why this past week got such a strong feedback. Reddit first supplemented this with ads that looked like submissions, that were stickied at the top. Obviously this wasn't enough for them, and needing to make bank off of marketers/shills like in the IAMAs or the pics that got featured in HailCorporate.

To get into the ex scenario. The ex may look like a winner on the outside, has a bad drug habit, pushes for living together/shared bank accounts, before draining their current partner of all their money, belongings. It is important to speak up if you see an old school buddy, or distanced family member starting to hook up with them. Problem with reddit is that it is getting into face tattoos/meth teeth scenario, where it really is "what did you expect?" and "can you shut up about them in every conversation?".

If he constantly harped about it every day, then it'd be the same thing.

Reddit is a lost cause. The focus should be on building a community here instead of shitting on Reddit constantly.

That's exactly what I'm trying to get at.

We talk about cnn, shariablue, msnbc, fox, npr, etc. These are the tools of the enemy and it is important that we follow their progression and know them well.

There are also things like seth rich and stonetear that are reddit based, and so it is very important.

Well, to be fair we teach history so we don't repeat the mistakes that happened before us. I'd rather bitch about Reddit now, than become part of the issue later.

Its a grieving process. They arent in any healthy stage yet. But thats what it is. I guess this is part of the first one, Denial. Inside they know its over(unless she takem him back) but they cant accept that. So they remember the good times, all the lulz and pepe memes. Yeah sometimes he' d hit me or edit my comments, but it was probably my fault. Inside they go back and forth, on top they know it was abuse, but inside they want they good times back. They want that warm feeling of snuggly love. And they forget all the imposed rules and shadow bans and you cant go drinking w the boys were going to see some shitty chick flick tonight...

Theyre grieving. Some will eventually move on and some regrettably will go back and get some teeth knocked out and a black eye. "You guys went all rouge and protested our censoring, you made me do it. You know i loves you baby...'

True. And I stay by that, even after this attitude got me banned from pretty much every site I registered on except for two. Voat being one of them.
