Reddit users have lost their grip on reality. It might not even be genuine people at this point. Just out sourced shilling from other countries to sow divide.

r/all is clearly astroturf at this point. It's been astroturf for a while. There are constantly hugely upvoted things with surprisingly low numbers or generic comments. What's really obvious is that politics posts have larger upvote piles than say comedy posts that are actually funny.

I mean here is an obviously staged photo from today with almost 70k, you even get the jew nose in the back (maybe as bait). The front page has posts in the 40s and 50s, and those look a astroturfed too. But many non-political posts are under 20k. And they all are around the same age. It looks like false consensus creating.

I honestly suspect that comments are about 20% of upvotes and upvotes are about 20% of daily users. So looking at the front page there might be 25k actual users based on an average of about 1k comments. But I do think that reddit users are treated like small time unpaid influencers by marketers. A kind of influencer pyramid scheme. Where the marketers pour the cool-aid, reddit drinks the cool-aid and then tells their friends and family to taste the cool-aid.

Thanks for detailed reply.

I feel like your correct and part of the reason why r/subredditsimulator exists is to downplay the bots and make them appear more retarded than what they actually are.

It's twox...they literally have no sense of reality there.

Now you're getting the gist of it.
