I'm positive that's a subreddit already, but hey.

I've seen talk on Twitter about this chapo traphouse thing, but I confess I still have no idea what it is.

WTF is ChapoTrapHouse?  Because it sounds really bad.

I never went to many subreddits, but now I regret not seeing the reddit dark humor bad enough to be banned on the internet.

From what I can gather, it's a far left podcast that seems to be problematic. I can't get any more specific than that because I haven't been able to dig.

It's a neoliberal outlet for ex-Obama staffers.

The podcast can be very astute, if not pragmatic.

The subreddit reveled in the same sort of irreverent humor.    The sub originally got in trouble for *checks notes*  "Threatening slave owners with violence."
 
2020-06-29 2:57:55 PM  
That sub was dead anyways the mods killed it on purpose. Little too late at this point. They all went over to r/Coservative and that place is just a lite version of The_Donald.

Hopefully Dorsey and Twitter, et al, can spawn a pair of bawls soon too.

There's always 32chan or whatever they're up to now.

i'm sure we'll be seeing more of the incels soon.
 
2020-06-29 2:58:04 PM  
And yet a few didn't get banned that should have. PPD being one of them. Used to be a decent sub when new until incels took over and turned it into "The woman deserved it" video posting circle jerk.
 
2020-06-29 2:58:05 PM  
Get ready for another influx.
 
2020-06-29 2:58:19 PM  
Now imagine if this had been done 4+ years ago.

Also: good.

A quick wiki scan tells me it's essentially a left wing version of Crowder.

That won't happen until January 20, 2021.

If it does happen.

Oh noes. Where will the racist d-bags of TheDonald go to break TOS now?

This was barely even a symbolic gesture. TD had been quarantined months ago and the majority of the users migrated off-site or to r/conservative. There's only been 1 post in TD in the last 100 days. The ban on CPT was purely a "both sides!!!" thing too, I'm pretty sure.

(For the record, r/conservative has become just as toxic as TD ever was, but they were spared the banhammer.)

The new content policy does have one quirk that strikes me as odd, though. Hate speech and threats of violence are banned against minority and vulnerable groups but are explicitly allowedagains "the majority". What "the majority" is, though, is not specified: the majority demographic for the country? The site? The sub?

(As someone pointed out, women make up the majority of the population of the world and the United States, so technically under these rules misogyny would be allowed...)

So, like I said in another thread: not to get all Fragile White Male or anything, but explicitly allowing hate speech and threats of violence against (presumably) white men seems...odd.

is /r/Rimworld still OK? I couldn't bear it if I couldn't read about all the organ harvesting and human leather cowboy hats.

Nope.

Dorsey's balls are sitting on a shelf along with ones from Zuckerberg, Blanche, Moscow Mitch, Donnie Two Scoops and the rest in 'ol Vlad Putin's trophy case.

Everywhere else. But you know, good for Reddit. Hopefully it will stick.

Twitch too. In other news Trump was on Twitch? What games does he play?

I don't really look at political subreddits because, well, they're awful, but it's striking me that one of these subreddits is not like the other.

"Problematic".  They weren't super helpful to Sanders campaign, but they weren't really intended for a wider audience.  They got a ton of attention after Sanders said something positive about them when asked about their endorsement.  It was a guilt by association thing.  You can find equally toxic youtubers and podcasts for nearly every candidate at the national level.  CTH just got a lot of exposure and began reaching a lot of people.  Many of whom were just there to ... investigate.

I'm not a fan, myself.  It's really navel-gazing bullshiat most of the time and the hosts are... not deep thinkers.  But they tapped into the populist anger out here on the far left and blew up.  And then blew up.

Little of value was lost.  If any of the CTH crew actually have any chops, they'll land on their feet.

Difficulty:  Can't be higher than they can count on their fingers and toes.  Well, those they haven't blown off playing with fireworks or something.

So, pro'ly maxes out at 14chan.

I remember sending something to my brother and his reply was "r/nottheonion"

It was a remarkably pithy yet clear statement.
