That screenshot method isn't fool proof as they could just use inspect element to make it look like their logged into a mods account.

Maybe have the requirement for proof be they have to make a post from their reddit account saying their saidit username?

Thanks, that's a good idea. I'll amend the post saying they have to PM my Reddit account with their Saidit username.

Yeah, that's a much better way to do it

Reddit WILL NOT ban distasteful subs. They are upholders of free speech and are against censorship. /s

Like they quarantine a sub about the president of the US, but then chapotraphouse is allowed to do death threats everywhere and reddit admins refuse to acknowledge it.

It's a slow burn, but I am subbed to r/watchredditdie for sure.

since honkler was banned and the conversations between admins and mods was leaked on r/the_cabal, we're probably next on the chopping block. r/the_cabal itself will probably go as well once admins notice it.

I wonder how far ahead they have it planned out... or if they're just responding to the "problems" as they arise like whack-a-mole.

If they're truly going to go IPO, the investors will demand things of reddit that will make it get even worse. That's scheduled for 2020

You would think it's obvious that banning and censoring doesn't actually accomplish what it sets out to accomplish, EVEN if it was done right without the power corruption risk. Best examples of censoring working are from kings and emperors that also have absolute authority to silence anyone opposing the reason behind the censoring. Reddit and the rest of the woke left does not realize that without power your authoritarian tendencies will just die slowly (and with power it would require fighting back in some way). Either way, you either die slowly or have to fight a bunch of people that disagree with your censoring, so unless you're dealing with a bunch of kids or you are an emperor that can order the head of your dissenters, you shouldn't be censoring anyone.

And it creates an unsustainable feedback loop. Once you censor something, then you have to also censor the talk about the censorship, which creates more incidents, which must also be censored.

It just spirals out of control until it collapses because it's simply unmanageable and people reach a breaking point.

I used to feel a little bad for Reddit when they first started banning hate subs. I get that advertisers dont want to advertise on a website that has subs like r/coontown and that Reddit needs adverts to fund itself. But at the same time as soon as you ban these subs you end up dispersing all the vile racists to the rest of Reddit. They no longer have a place where they can talk among themselves so they have to find a new home, take over a sub, and then that sub is banned. Its pointless to attempt to silence them as they will just keep moving. Its far better to let them have their little community and stay over there then destory it and invite them to pollute the rest of the site.
