I haven't completely switched to Saidit, but I use it to get alternative viewpoints as reddit has been become a huge left leaning echo chamber.

I recently found out about reveddit.com and ran my username. Found 23 post that had been taken down by mods or auto mods.

Some of the auto mod take downs I still can't figure out what was wrong with the posts. Might have been edgy but I have seen worse on reddit.

Some of the mod take downs were nothing more then total abuse of power. One example, I agreed with someone who told a story about what life was like during the cold war under communism and my comment was manually deleted by a mod! 100% clean comment. No swearing or anything. Plenty of comments shiting on the guy's story that the mod left alone More scary then anything.

People need to take censorship serious.

Thanks! I never knew this existed.

I just created a new sub to post all the interesting things that Reddit has censored. If there is anything you are particularly disappointed in having been deleted please submit it there.

Since you seem interested in stuff banned on Reddit, /u/HiddenFox, /u/Canbot, and /u/TheOtherSide, you might be interested in participating in the upkeep of this wiki page: https://SaidIt.net/s/SaidIt/wiki/BannedFromReddit that I haven't kept up for some time now.

Good to know. That's a BIG one. Sad.

I haven't been motivated to contribute to SaidIt wikis for 9 months. I'm close to reconsidering.

In case you are wondering about the anti-communist comment, Tencent owns part of Reddit, and my hypothesis is that the other owners agreed to make it China-"friendly" so they can sell more.

[–]venisonmerlot 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Fuck China. That is all.

Reddit offers subreddits a choice between increasingly strict and unreasonable censorship, and closing. I object to this. It's sad to see "communities" that people have spent time and effort on, and developed friendships in, get first ghettoised by "quarantine" then killed off.

Why choose saidit? Of all the reddit-likes, this seems to have the most active KiA.

Yet still no advertisers are being contacted...

[–]blacksabbath 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

why should they contact advertisers?

Why does modern day Gamergate exist?

[–]danuker 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Can you close it with a sticky pointing people to a Saidit sub?

[–]Riva 16 insightful - 3 fun16 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

Because fuck Reddit.

I left Digg when they thought they could tell users what to post and what to upvote.

Reddit has gone further and has more power than Digg had. But it's still dying. It'll turn into a porn hub instead of what it use to be before long.

I hope it goes the way of digg.

Fuck Reddit and fuck spez. I miss Aaron Swartz.

Censorship. Bias. Clown World.

In other words it's a toxic shithole where you can't hurt their feelings with reality.

That and I've been shadow-banned from multiple sports subreddits, mainly because of their gender dysphoria issues.

My favorite subs kept disappearing or getting ruined. Imgoingtohellforthis was my last straw.

Wait what happened to Imgoingtohellforthis? Sorry I"m out of the loop on this.

This was the first I've heard on reddit fucking with it. It's quarantined now apparently. AKA banned within months.

[–]Proud_White_Guy 11 insightful - 4 fun11 insightful - 3 fun12 insightful - 4 fun -  (8 children)

Not fully switched.

What did he do that was douche?

[–]Chipit 7 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

Calling people nazis at the drop of a hat? It's like you're a parody of what the right thinks redditors are like.

[–]Proud_White_Guy 7 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

Alt reich douche

Lol. Thanks, Rabbi.

[–]asterias 6 insightful - 5 fun6 insightful - 4 fun7 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

Have you tried not posting the same line about "nazis" and "alt reich"? Are you a bot repeating the same thing over and over?

Oh dear, are you getting your hormones delivered in a timely manner during this crisis?

Reddit is well on its way to death thanks to AHS and abusive Admins. I am likely going to delete my Reddit account in a few months, if not weeks.

[–]TheOtherSide 12 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I have been there 11 years its really sad what it has become.

I switched when one of my comments disappeared, not just from the subreddit I posted in, it was also removed from my history, like it never existed, there was no warning or explanation at all and it made me feel terribly uncomfortable. I love the concept of reddit and decided to see if there was a site similar to it and that led me here

[–]mosleylerkin 8 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 3 fun9 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

a lot of the boards on reddit require permission to post now. that just feels so restrictive aside from the downvoting.

[–]robblegops 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

what he said. ☝🏼

[–]Agilepoppy 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

well when reddit boots you and you're too milquetoast for voat, where else are you gonna go if the local gutter is full?

[–]useless_aether 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (6 children)

what kills voat for me are the q-anon useful idiots and their mods.

[–]Velocity 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Just avoid the qanon subs.

they are spreading like cancer. the pizzagate subs are the latest victims.

Avoiding shit is a personal issue. I have a tropphy to show how personal I have to be.

I heard Q say that Trump has approved a massive deployment of 5G towers under the cover of the Covid hysteria, because the bad guys were also quarantined.

We've been assured that these 5G towers would only be used during the mass-arrests of the bad guys, and there's nothing else to worry about...

[–]useless_aether 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

q is a psyop

[–]Tom_Bombadil 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah, bro. I know. ;-)

[–]joewest1313 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

You can say the word nigger here. Not call people niggers or complain about niggers but simply type the word out of context in a post and not be banned.

The word itself appears quite extensively in a major american work of written art. Would Mark Twain be banned from Reddit?

Absolutely.

That alone is awesome.

[–]ctvzbuxr 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

The inciting incident for me was that WPD got banned. But I had been pissed off by Reddit's censorship and by the fact that it is just a left-wing echochamber for a while. I found out that WPD moved to Saidit, and followed. Started reading the front page, found out that there's actually interesting stuff on here, made an account so I could post. Saw the potential of this site once more people come here, started suggesting Saidit to other Reddit users.

[–][deleted] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Same exact story as me :)

[–]Thugnificent 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

No one wants an actual discourse they want escapist feel good dialogue. Especially about politics. Americans being blissfully ignorant of what their own government is capable of because the truth makes them uncomfortable is the reason the US has been circling the drain for the last 50 years. Much like reddit in 2015, this country had a bullet put through it's skull in 1963 and it's corpse has been raped so many times it's unidentifiable. Sorry if that's angsty or edgelordy but neither angst nor edge is a relevant rebuttal of anything lol

So I assume you are in the 'duh, LBJ was in on it' camp.

Just remember, the swirl got so fast, our last pres was praising LBJ's "accomplishments"

Reddit is an echo-chamber of dangerous left-wing dumbthink.

I don't support websites that suppress Freedom of Speech. Hopefully my experience here will be more satisfying.

Thanks. Just found out an automod is deleting my posts in a sub I moderate. Lol

[–]Sh4nt1 4 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Censorship, This place is truly a bastion of free speech. Something humanity as a whole has seemingly thrown down the drain to protect peoples feelings. I guess we also forgot the saying "truth hurts".

[–]m68k 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I never switched since I never joined reddit. Though, I did want to join Reddit, but the overpowered mods and mob ruling vote system is what killed it for me. I joined Saidit instead. I should note, even before Saidit, I did join Voat, but that's for another thread. No need to derail this one. :)

The fact you can simply be one here is refreshing in it of itself.

Reddit has been engaging in censorship of those that critizes the Chinese government's silencing of whistleblowers.

I found here when ice poseidon subreddits got the ban hammer back in 2019. I had the most fun time browsing that subreddit but they took away my fun because i guess it was getting too much attention from r/livestreamfail and even r/all.
