Research, how the f*ck does it work?

Wow, Reddit is unreadable.

Question 1. "Do you like Ron Paul, pot, and poor economic ideas?"

To be fair, the campaign manager most likely spends his time in the incest, child porn, and Sarah Palin fan fiction subreddits.

I wish he would've answered the question before getting all butthurt!

from his Facebook page:
Dear All : Wow the reddit experience was no fun. I was told that Richard Mack found a lot of support there and so I ventured into the fray. Well yes indeed that was not the Right venue. Life goes on.

Note: that is his capitalization of right.

Funny stuff.

Reddit seems like a massive hassle to navigate.
 
2013-08-21 11:48:05 AM  
Ew.  Who got this reddit all over my fark?
 
2013-08-21 11:50:02 AM  
I have friends that read Reddit and my question is always, "How?"

It's a mess and full of sociopaths.

Wow, what a farking coward.

This.

basemetal: Deserved the nut kicking he got for being that out of touch.


Motherfarking that.

James!: Wow, Reddit is unreadable.


And people complain about Fark? Really?  I remember trying to see Obama's AMA IIRC on Reddit, didn't know what the fark was going on.
 
2013-08-21 11:51:27 AM  
I find the whole idea chuckle-worthy.

Someone told this dingbat that Reddit was full of the 'Right' kind of people and he went there expecting accolades and adulation and got a solid kick in the nuts instead.

and after getting savaged for however long he could stand it, he fled in disgrace, deleted his account and tried to pretend as if it was all a big misunderstanding.

Makes me wonder what would happen if one of those loonies showed up on Fark with the same kind of idea.

even I will admit that Fark is better than Reddit
 
2013-08-21 11:52:57 AM  
God Reddit is awful to navigate. Grats on making a Teabagger look stupid (I assume that's what they did, all I got out of TFA's link was Snoop Lion posts there), I guess. Don't hurt yourselves patting each other on the back for that.

The immigration, health care, and gun control debates on Fark are equally awful.

Sometimes, Fark just doesn't update quickly enough.

Makes me wonder what would happen if this idiot actually gets elected. Obviously accountability isn't on his list of virtues.

a tea partier ventured outside "the bubble?" oh noes!
 
2013-08-21 11:56:23 AM  
I don't understand the complaints about navigating reddit. It works fine for me.

The problem with reddit is the people on it. They make Fark look like a damn Mensa meeting.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Question 1. "Do you like Ron Paul, pot, and poor economic ideas?"

Don't forget:

1. Aren't white men the most oppressed group in society currently and forever?

2. Girls are mean to nerds. Is it ok to hate all women, especially geeky ones, in perpetuity because Sally called me a nerd in third period?

3. Why has Electronic Arts not been arrested and prosecuted for making games I did not enjoy, including sports games that only dudebros who beat me up in school play?

4. I am a fan of pornography of questionable legality. What protections do you offer for online forums where such things might be discussed at length?

Pure redditry right there.
 
2013-08-21 11:58:22 AM  
I for one am glad that there's a strong conservative like Matt McCall who will finally abolish the 13th Amendment.

He should have gone back a few months ago before reddit realized it was awful and banned its racist and pedophile subreddits.

The link had no real info, and this image that "make me some tea" posted above is a smear of a thumbnail, it could be the nuclear launch codes for all I can tell. What?

Say all you want about Reddit's terrible layout, but  http://www.reddit.com/r/askhistorians is an awesome sub. Probably the most adult community I've ever experienced on the webs..

Don't you think you're being a little hard on 3.1?

sxacho: I don't even know how to Reddit. I tried but it makes no sense to me.


How to Reddit

1. Be a clueless 20-year-old white male

2. Probably at a community college or commuter school

3. Have a crippling devotion to Gabe Newell

4. Have edgy opinions about pot, eugenics, race relations, feminism, and RON PAUL

5. Enjoy "jailbait" and dropping n-bombs because you're totally not racist, you hate everybody

6. Get really mad about the Internet

cubic_spleen: Here's a link to a PDF of the AMA


Are you kidding? "Page 1 of 120". The next five pages are arguing over the correct way to pronounce "LOL". May have been more pages but that's where I closed the tab...

Well yeah...I would've said Windows 95; all the bugs notwithstanding, Win 95 looked better than Reddit.

His Myspace page seems to post comments without filtering them. Have fun with that.

LOL. The "I hate reddit" comments are mighty transparent.

It's okay. You can visit FARK and Reddit. Reddit has much more depth than FARK, if you are willing to look.

I tried reading the PDF, I really did, but when I made it to page 3 and they were still talking about the grammatically correct use of "lol", something deep within my brain said "Stop. Just stop."

The guy got just what he deserved.

Politics is a cut throat business.  If he can't handle a bunch of trolls on Reddit, he is in no way prepared to take on any high-powered position where his opponents are going to savage him every chance they get.

And sorry people, Reddit is a much better and more interesting site than Fark, and this is someone who's been suing both for many years.  There's a good reason why Reddit has 20x+ the number of users than Fark.
