I had Davidwhatever666 RES tagged as a "cunt" and couldn't remember why. Now I remember.

The demise of Reddit has been interesting to watch in the same way as watching ISIS's growth; a few maniac extremists are taking over and if you don't *toe the line of those in power, enjoy being "executed."

He is a classic example of the "Muh Feels!" and "I'm right, you're wrong. No argument, enjoy your ban" power-tripping narcissistic psychopaths that infest Reddit's mod teams.

*edit for proper idiom

It's also much like the corporate hive mind. You have a few of the same names coming up over and over -- from Sub to Sub and from boardroom to boardroom.

What baffles me is how these agenda-driven ideologues manage to get themselves into mod positions on hundreds of subreddits. They must be in cahoots with the admins, because only the radical SJW types ever seem to manage to obtain this degree of influence. It really is like a sort of metastasizing cancer.

The thing I have noticed, is how unprofessional a lot of mods are. "He probably had a good reason, bye now" is a terrible excuse for an answer, and shouldn't be acceptable.

Of course, what is to be expected from unpaid, impossible to remove "leaders"?

To be fair, professionalism is not a requirement to be a mod. It just confuses me how people like that become mods on larger subs.

You'd think the cream would float to the top. Not the massive chunks of shit.

That's what I wondered about. Would this shitheel have to go through the mod settings of all these subs and ban him one by one?

"no u"

That's what the power mods think is an appropriate response to someone asking why they got banned on hundreds of subreddits at once.

Actually that's the thing, these people in charge of moderating reddit straight up don't care about appropriately communicating with the redditors

I always enjoy when they say "since you aren't active here it shouldn't matter to you" when trying to justify a cross-subreddit ban. I've seen a couple people get that answer lately, and it reminds me of the old "if you don't have anything to hide.." illogical reasoning.

I don't see how it reminds you of that; what this means to me is that they don't care if more people use reddit, let alone if people leave that place.

It's like they think they are too big to respect the users. Too big to fall

It's the same type of logical fallacy.

 

If you don't have anything to hide - nothing to fear.
flip side: Nothing to hide - no need to spy on me

If you weren't active - you shouldn't care anyway
flip side: Not active - no reason to ban

 

I just enjoy the stupidity of the argument, the actual behavior should be expected from the new Reddit royalty.

The FOR FREE! stuff started on 4chan, where mods would remove content >for free.

Now we have moderators on reddit with actual "power" over more than just one sub/board, and it's terrible.

That is the basic problem with having the power to censor people: you start looking for people to censor, and while it is pretty nice at first, eventually you start noticing minor offenses, paranoia sets in on one side, revolt on the other. The question I'm wondering is what would be a better system than the current "team of admins" approach, where all admins have equal powers. Clearly enforcing some sort of mod consensus would be nice, but then you end up with either like-minded mods, or "lazy" mods who never come to agreement and the users complain that they never do their job.

This post in /r/conspiracy was actually the last straw for me. Reddit (as a company) has announced an active agenda and has inferred that "power mods" actually work to their advantage in forwarding their philosophy of "safe spaces".

Mods aren't supposed to have the power to ban outright. Apparently by moderating 100's of subreddits they essentially do have this power.
