Straight from the 'Rules for thee, but not for me' department. Notice they're not talking about a global 'no stickies in r/all' rule, which is what should be happening if that behaviour is undesirable.

Yeah this is the first instance i can think of where Reddit instituted subreddit specific restrictions into their codebase.

Not even trying to hide their biases any more.

They've had restrictions on /r/The_Donald for a while now. Fueled by the "sticky new posts early" practice the subreddit used to permanently clog up /r/all a couple months ago. In response to that the admins quietly introduced an algorithm which never allowed more than three posts from there at the same time anymore. This is what lead to the "fuck /u/spez" mentality and subsequently to spez getting provoked, editing some posts, and where we are now.

Reddit mods already use stickies and enforced meatheads to kill unwanted developing topics; I can see them abusing a "no stickies in /r/all" rule to further bury developing news.

Its worse than that. r/The_Donald has effectively been completely removed from r/All. You cannot see it for pages and pages.

It will be difficult to bring about change in Reddit.

Depending on how deep the changes go I may be able to restore the posts to their correct positions at https://ceddit.com much like I do with /r/undelete as a source.

I'll look into it.

Edit: well that was easy. It's done

They made some sort of algorithm change to it. There was a post a couple months ago where somewhere deep in /r/all there were dozens of The_Donald posts. There was perhaps a ceiling applied. They also mentioned applying a multiplier in the leaked slack chat.

The_Donald figured out that /r/all is heavily influenced by upvote speed so stickied posts in a sub full of Donald fans would get 3k+ upvotes within an hour. They could get a post to the top of /r/all at a rate exceeding 1 per hour. Then when a story would come out that the rest of reddit censored, The_Donald could be half of the top ten on /r/all from even non-Donald fans coming in and upvoting the news.

Instead of making the /r/all algorithm harder to game, they just nerfed The_Donald.

All he did was praise himself and insult Trump supporters even more. The more they push us down, the stronger the movement gets. The more demand for free speech, non-cuckold sites increases.

And, worst of all, he did nothing to assure that this could never happen again. His silence basically said that it can and will happen again. To top it off, he later says that he had this ability because he was one of the "engineers" who built Reddit, but he doesn't say how many people have access to this feature. He just assures us that they will limit access to this in the future, which only makes me more uncomfortable. Christ, they might as well house the site in the UK the way that they're banning specific forms of speech.

It was an example of playing the victim, he attacked others and lost so he resorted to seeing himself as a victim of others. He started the fire and instead of putting it out, has just put up a huge screen to shield off the flames. It'll get worse for reddit no doubt, but the next few days will just show the flames licking ever higher. His solution will likely be to put up a bigger screen.

You can filter r/all now? Why would you want to intentionally turn your r/all into an echo-chamber? I go to r/all to specifically to get fresh-air from outside my echo-chamber subs.

Its the final act of making reddit an echo chamber, the last place that you could find pure unfiltered content across all of reddit has now become a set of echo chambers. I've seen lists of up to 50 or more subreddits that people are filtering, its the modern equivalent of putting fingers in your ear and saying "lalala can't hear you".

When the main general aggregator says at the top on your browser "filtered" you know things are bad.

Welcome to Voat. A lot of systems here (daily upvote limits, downvotes, commenting limits, posting limits, ability to request moderator positions, etc.) are tied to "Comment Contribution Points" (or CCP for short, which is basically like "comment karma" over on Eddit), so be sure to speak up and join the conversation to quickly get back to a similar capability level as you had on the other site.

At the bottom of every subverse's sidebar is a log of all the big actions a moderator can take (removed submissions, removed comments, banned users), which tell you when the deleted comment/post was made, who made it, when the moderator deleted/banned someone, and (in the case of bans, because we haven't implemented the feature on comment/post deletions yet) the stated reason from the moderator for the ban. These, alongside Voat's active anti-censorship userbase and our two admins (yes, only two, their names are Atko and PuttItOut, and they also have full-time jobs 'on the side' to keep Voat afloat, because they haven't taken any money from investors yet), are our main tools to fight against any attempts to create powermods (you know, the people who "moderate" hundreds of subreddits at once, and ban anyone who doesn't agree with their circlejerk of opinions).

We have a smaller active crowd than Reddit, but the comments are much less meme-focused (except on circlejerk subverses like v/TheDonald and v/FatPeopleHate , although they also don't have too many bots to keep the circljerk memes active here) and can be home to honest intellectual debates about the finer points of an issue.

Finally, because of our focus away from automation and moderator power, we do have a slight infestation of spammers and shills. They are even artificially inflating some of their own posts with upvotes, so be on the lookout for any posts with several hundred upvotes and downvotes, as those are likely to be fake.

When I transitioned, I initially kept both my accounts active, but I deleted my Reddit account about a month or so after FPH (I think it was a few days before Victoria got fired from her admin job without telling the r/AMA team) because the subverses I liked had finally been built up to a point where I was happy going there instead of going to the specific subreddits I still enjoyed (like r/OnePiece).

I loved the narrative of "anti-harassment" as opposed to the censorship it truly is. The use of the terms "Toxic Users" and "Taken Care Of" sounded like the leader of a cult or mob speaking of dissent. Fucking gullable asshats over there are sucking his teet after the incredulous victimization post he calls an apology.
