Under what ranking logic does Reddit /u/theEnzyteGuy's 6750 point, excellent post get buried that far down when sorting by best? The top post is also 3 hours old and has less than a tenth of the points.

Looks like blatant manipulation to me.

I think their algorithm take into account imaginary numbers. Yeah that's it.

Also , unless I'm misunderstanding, shouldn't posts that receive 50% upvoats and 50% downvoats be at 0 points? I saw a post by Ellen Pao that had 40% upvoats but it was net positive 2000ish points. Seemed like bullshit.

Of course they wouldn't want there sheep becoming self-aware, and realize they are being fucked by the shepherd.

25 times no less. Maybe more by the time the thread is locked.

You sorted the comments through 'best', which takes into account the upvote/downvote ratio. Even though it had 6750 points, it likely also had a lot of downvotes.

I believe this is the correct answer. I hope that @Jxnfpm does not ignore simply to maintain his anger.

Man, I'm seeing years-old memes that stopped being funny back on 4chan getting 3000+ upvotes and making it to the front page.

At this point, they're using everything they can think of to bury important news.

Guess they don't realize they're just burying themselves.

You missed a great opportunity for a Dead Space reference there.

You mean like that post I saw on Reddit years ago where the rattlesnake bites itself after its head's been cut off?

You are sorting by best is why. Change to sort by top.

Makes sense. My default is best, but I've never seen such a stark difference between "best" and "top" for comments made at approximately the same time.

Best is such garbage. It doesn't seem to be even remotely consistent at what it puts at the top.

It almost seems as if, no matter who's in charge around there, they continue to run into the metaphorical clothesline and end up looking like a bunch of slapped asses. Its honestly downright embarrassing how incompetent things seem to be at Reddit HQ right now.

Dammit. I'm usually pretty proud of myself for being normal on the internet, and you just gave me a boner over Reddit's deathspiral. There goes my pride.

You should have used the word manipulation or rigging in the title.

This looks like blatant manipulation. It still comes up for Top, but default sort for most users is Best.

I doubt it's deliberate. If it were, the top post wouldn't be equally critical.

Is that true? I always got the posts sorted by Top. Maybe I set it that way at some point and forgot it wasn't the default when I joined?

[–] The_Time_Master 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I believe so, when I log out it defaults to best.

What....? How are you guys this paranoid? Here is a link the post WITHOUT the automatic switching to best comments. Its right there at the top, where everyone can see it. And you know what the top comment sorted by best is? THE SAME EXACT THING, just worded differently with a link provided to show where the quote came from. I thought Voat was supposed to be better than Reddit and everyone here just wanted a better version of Reddit. If so, stop caring what you think is going on Reddit and worry about getting more content and users over here so this site actually becomes a real competitor of Reddit.

i noticed that too. I didn't really think much of it, but this tells me I'm not going insane
