The downvotes. Downvoting is passive-aggressive behavior.

And often used in order to silence people, as negative karma means you can't post as easily.

I found on Reddit a huge amount of people seemed to write in the exact same style, using the same weird little phrases and stuff. It was quite cringeworthy.

A product of reddit itself or a fact of groups/internet groups?

[–]JFVG 13 insightful - 3 fun13 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I hope it's the former, although perhaps once I've been on here long enough I'll start to notice it's a universal issue. We shall see.

AI shilling.

The same happens on Youtube comments.

I cannot handle the "laughs in <x>" or "<x> has entered the chat" applied to everything under the sun, it sounds so fucking dumb everytime.

Oof, big yikes sweaty. There's a lot to unpack here.

Yikes, it's almost as if you're icky, creepy, and gross, my sweet summer child. That wasn't very wholesome. Who hurt you?

If you chuck in a 'maybe, just maybe...' and an 'it's almost as though...' then it's like I'm right back there.

Feeling like I'm being brainwashed and manipulated every time I open the page.

Being censored from every main subreddit
Policing your own comments

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

It's so nice knowing I can click on the envelope and know I will likely never see a "request" that I re-write my comment in PC language.

[–]happysmash27 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I've experienced some toxicity on SaidIt for my most controversial idea (recently there is a newer segment of SaidIt which is much more toxic than the older one, not adhering to the pyramid of debate well), but at least I don't have to worry about being banned for it. And even still, I actually got a few decent arguments against it too, not just smiting. So that is really nice; maybe I can actually change my opinion about it here instead of feeling horrible for having an opinion I can't find arguments against.

Wondering whose a paid shill and who's not.

[–]Horrux 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

What about the unpaid (AI) shills?

All written and scripted by poo-jeets.

I have a feeling paid shills will be on SaidIt too once it gets big enough. I wouldn't be surprised if some are here already… though I also wouldn't be surprised if there were none at all, unlike Reddit.

[–]Horrux 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think they're already here.

Agree with comments here.

Mine is a small thing but I found it irritating. It would be when someone made a cleverly humorous pun or comment and 50 people keep working on their comment to out-clever the one prior.

Petty, I know.

[–]runtis 8 insightful - 5 fun8 insightful - 4 fun9 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah that was annoying! Leeching on to a popular comment to get fake internet points.

[–]ISaidWhatISaid 17 insightful - 3 fun17 insightful - 2 fun18 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Having to worry about someone I am interacting with being a League Troll (which led to me not interacting with anyone at all). Having to worry about a subreddit I am participating on disappearing the next day. Having to worry about downvote brigades. Having to worry about someone threatening to murder me and others for our opinions. Being expected to grovel to psychopathic thugs for their approval.

I would say "the endless political propaganda" but, well. Here we are.

    Same. Nightmare mode is realizing that those people are numerous, they exist in real life, and act the same way in public, at their jobs, and at home.

    How long I spent on Reddit. There is not as much content here and a lot of it isn't something I'm interested in. I post more because of it.

    Disagreeing with someone being dismissed as "concern trolling".

    [–]happysmash27 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    I absolutely hate that (and similar dismissals of arguments), in the few times they have happened to me. My arguments are genuine and I am a real person (with around 10 years of history under the same username), even if my opinions can be a bit crazy sometimes (I guess I am just a free thinker?).

    Jewish subversive behavior. Though, it's creeping into here too.

    That sounds like a great idea. But VPNs and proxies...

    [–]Stankmango 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    The sweaty freshet of meme culture spilling into every thread. "You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar", "this guy fucks", "I bet you're fun at parties." and the innumerable stolen inside gags that top the actually relevant interesting points.

    The second straw for me is when WPD got blacked. That's not too bad, content wise, because I know most of the sites they get it from. The final straw was cringeanarchy. I'm one of the CA migrants. Now there were no memes half a percent as funny as the ones posted there.

    I was more of a lurker so I don't give as much of a shaven shit as the others getting juiced and xehandled by the petty contrarians and gangs of four.

    Interesting posts being locked because "Ya'll can't behave."

    Everyone bending the fucking knee to trans bullshit.

    Tankies, power thirsty mods, banned subreddits, reposts. The only thing there is to miss is the amount of people, not because it matters how popular the site is, but because it meant even the more niche subs had a good amount of content and there really was a sub for pretty much anything.

    Non-playing characters parroting each other, making comment chain threads within posts that don’t respond to the post, but contain either the dumbest pre-school level joke, or some stupid reference, all 4 da updoots!

    Also, Reddit made me hate Marvel (not that I was ever a big fan, but Spider-Man..). I can’t stand reddit users lol if you’re a Reddit user still, at this point, you’re everything I don’t like about my generation lol.

    tl;dr: the user base

    tl;dr: the user base

    This is another salient point that I think is substantive to bring forth to the teeny clubhouse round table we got going on. All of us saidheads (I hope) possess the tittle of attention to trawl through more than two paragraphs without needing a footnote summary. Not casting aspersions on you, Enza, although you're pretty gay for liking spiderman.

    Just because I use Reddit, does not mean I am part of the same hivemind. Many people on SaidIt are also on Reddit (often still moving away from it), and many on Reddit also rarely participate in its biggest subs (which seem to get worse the bigger they are).

    [–]Enza 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    You're right, I should have explained myself better. I apologize, I didn't mean any offense, but you knew what I meant when I said that!

    I should correct myself and say "Reddit Culture", rather than it's users.

    The anti black woman and anti white authoritarian black community. You speak the truth about black men and suddenly they say you're not black. It's pathetic.

    That if you post or reply something that even nudges someone to have some critical thought you get beat on relentlessly. I like discussions and seeing where thoughts lead. But they pretty much put out a bandwagon on things and if you aren't on it the masses descend.
