What is the point of this post? To laugh at someone stupid, on a sub that obviously is a joke anyway?

Doesn't really seem like good content, tbh.

Yeah, that's pretty much what /r/drama is. Should I turn off the subreddit appearing on s/all?

Yeah... I don't know if /s/drama will be allowed on saidit then since it's all about attacking idiots. It takes no skill to laugh at others who you deem inferior. That type of behavior and content is not really what saidit is about, and in fact that's kind of what we're trying to get away from by building this site in the first place.

If you want to take it off of /s/all I wouldn't object. But as it stands /s/drama drags down the quality of saidit instead of improving it, so it seems to be doing more harm than good to keep it around, since it might drive away more legitimate and thoughtful users. And that's who we are building the site for, people who want to discuss real ideas in an adult way. I think /s/drama detracts from that goal and degrades the quality of the site (if it continues as is) as well as basically being a platform to violate the pyramid of debate.

I'm just having a hard time seeing why /s/drama should be allowed on saidit since it has such poor motives from the get-go. Seems like it exists more to stir the pot and drag down the quality of saidit, than actually accomplish anything useful.

Tbh I just made it on Saidit because it looks like we may get banned soon on normal Reddit and I don't know about any other decent Reddit alternatives.

That's fair, that's what saidit is for. I'm just laying out the rules so it's not a surprise to anyone later if I have to take action to protect the quality of saidit.
