Honest Bender: 1. Who the fark cares what Redtards do?
2. Who the fark cares who that guy is?
3. GOOD! We should ban gawker links, too. Crappy template sites that just repost youtube videos with, like, 3 sentences summarizing the video... negative value added.


io9 is the best sci-fi news blog on the nets.

UNC_Samurai: I find the fact that so many people are dumping on Reddit hilarious. I bailed on Fark for a while in favor of reddit because there was more content and you could have discussions without the Politics Tab trolls infesting every corner of the site.

That being said, the Sports Tab game discussion threads are still better on Fark. So, shock and amazement, I use both sites.


Shhhh! Fark is no place for rational discussion. It's for alcoholism, drunk driving and trolling.

Reddit is alright. As long as you don't participate in the comments, read the comments, click on anything that mentions karma or anything from the atheism, politics, gaming, AMA, IAmA, or AskReddit subreddits.

Just click the funny pictures and move on.

spamdog: fark the Gawker site family. It's one of my top pet peeves on the internet at the moment. Didn't Drew write a book taking aim at exactly Gawker's brand of shiatty journalism?


You'll eat your words when the guy who ran the /r/jailbait forum turns out to be a Penn State alum working for the Second Mile. Gawker's gonna win a pulitzer - you watch.

RoyBatty: and near as I can tell only FARK and FARKers have a sense of humor.


That's because Fark has no real way to stroke an ego. Reddit has the voting on comments thing where people get wrapped up in upvoting and downvoting instead of just posting and and being interested in what's actually being said.

fluffy2097: coco ebert: There's a sub-group of photos of dead kids? 0_0

W.T.F.?

/take it to the "photos of dead kids" tab

It's a joke. He also asked to be mod of /r/beatingwomen while being mod of /r/srs, a feminism subreddit, because he thought it would be amusing.

Apparently it's not.

Gawker is a worthless pile of shiat though, so I can't say I will be visiting their sites. Not that i did much to begin with.


Was running the jailbait subreddit also funny?

As moderator of about 400 subreddits, violentacrez had become known for controlling shock forums like r/picsofdeadkids, r/nazi, and at one time, r/jailbait.

Also recently subreddits dedicated to public upskirt photos, with some users intentionally targeting the underage, and a subreddit dedicated towards beating women. Reddit has immediately leapt to the defense of this person as a valuable member of the community.

Seriously, don't go to Reddit. It's full of terrible people.
