From this point forward, if you brigade another users’ content your account will be banned.

So if I down vote every submission made by Hpoop I will be banned?

I have an idea: GET RID OF THE FUCKING UP AND DOWNVOTES AND LET A GODDAMN CONVERSATION HAPPEN, FOR THE SWEET EVERLOVING MOTHER OF FUCK. Copypasta time.

There is one main difference between Reddit and /pol/: equality.

On Reddit, you are forced to make a username to contribute. While you don’t have to connect it to an e-mail, you have to do so to comment more than once per few minutes. So, really, you have to connect it to an e-mail. This creates an identity that a user develops over time and craves to make “important.”

All the individual identities on Reddit crave one thing: Upvotes–for comments and posts. This means that a Reddit user is willing to sell a part of who they really are in the quest for more positive votes. This identity is no longer a true representation of who they really are (were). It is a pseudo-reality that only exists in the world of Reddit. Their ideas, comments, postings, and even language has been influenced and changed all for the sake of the coveted upward pointed arrow.

/pol/ is void of this. I can be who I want to be, post what I want to post, and say what I want to say without having to think about what you fucks think. Your opinions don’t do anything. /pol/ has given other users no way to devalue my identity. Reddit, by its nature, explicitly gives other users a way to devalue who and what you really are, what you really think, and what you really want to say. Reddit, while claiming to be for “content,” is really against it. One poster on Reddit even showed a part in the basic coding of Reddit’s popularity system where votes over time earn the “front page” status quickly. What gets looked at more over a short period of time: the interesting post about something everyone should know, or some stupid fucking cat? The cat, because it’s easier to see, easier to read, and easier to process. It’s a joke.

Sure, Reddit has some positives, but it all boils down to this: Reddit allows other users to have the power to alter your way of thinking for the sake of favor among them. /pol/ does not. Oh, and one more thing. Reddit’s administrators censor and delete anything with which they do not agree. Not only are other users altering your beliefs, the site owners are, as well.

Could be. There's no way @Puttitout or his algorithms could know your intentions.

I have upvoated sane goat fear nearly a year, for no reason other than to be a contrarian. 🐐

That's what he's threatening. Although it's not really fair in that case. HOPOOP's posts are usually always disgusting.

Well that should be no problem if the block feature is put in place.
