I wouldn't class a sub where people congregate for the pure purpose of being hateful to fat people as 'awesome'.

Nor would I class the rampant paranoia as healthy. Mods are asked on a monthly basis for pictures to show that they're not fat, while if anyone is even suspected of being fat, they are banned.

While I can understand the point of the sub, to a degree, I have a bit of a bone with the mods. I made a comment once simply stating that maybe isn't totally fair to compare a mom with an infant to a body builder with a toddler. Mom wasn't even fat, just had the 'I just had a baby' belly. She wasn't a body builder.

Anyway - they banned me and I had an inbox of crap replies about how obese I am based on one picture of my broken toenail. Point being - sure, bring the sub over - but... maybe change the mods?

I find it hard to believe that folks who have gathered purely over their hatred for a subset of human beings would make good mods.

It would be like playing a D&D session with six white supremacists; the only way you're going to keep order is through fear.

That's actually one thing I really like about that sub.

The rules are few and simple, when someone is banned or warned there is almost never any question about why it happened. If only sub's rules could be enforced to the letter everywhere it would be great.

Because, that kind of is the problem we currently have with reddit as a whole, there is no transparency and the mods have created their own private clique, and bend the rules as they please across multiple sub.

You see, all the time, accounts of users having been banned from several subs after one comment in FPH.

You know you can get the ban lifted very simply by proving you're not fat, right?

It's just hard to take snacktivists seriously, they'd make bad mods there.

I think that's missing the point. They're outright fearful of the obese.

They're not exactly adonis's themselves. Many of them are walking skeletons with skin and no muscle (I'm far from fat myself).

That's actually kind of insane (in a bad way). Not to compare being unhealthy to being persecuted for ideals, but it's sort of Red Scare esque.

The word you're looking for is "McCarthyism"
