its the manifesto of a notorious school shooter

so this is a sub based around making fun of that, or glorifying it, or what

oh, that was serious, Sam Hyde being responsible for lots of shootings and getting away with it is an in-joke within the community

its a community based around a comedy group with Sam Hyde and a few others, most prominently the Adult Swim series World Peace, which got shut down following Sam Hyde bringing a bit of alt-right politics into the show. The subreddit and any attempts at ban evasion (including many private subs) have been banned and there is an active voat community. I don't use voat but from what I've heard the subreddit was full of quality memes and some other alt-right things (books mentioned on sub), with it getting shut down for "~ in minecraft" shitposting

Calling it "attempts at ban evasion" is an overstatement. That was mostly a ploy by reddit fagmins to axe out literally anything remotely tangential to MDE-fan discourse.

Grilling and fishing themed subreddits (r/millioncommonbream) were getting created and banned months long after r/MDE got banned, and I remember seeing them, from birth to death, solely populated with boomer-tier memes. No serious discussion at all.

And, of course, there were the subreddits that existed well before r/MDE got banned, and were banned for "ban evasion", despite - yet again - having entirely separate focuses from r/MDE, and only sharing the same like-minded users.

yeah I experienced this firsthand with r/MillionDollarCraft, a place for discussing the MDE minecraft server while avoiding being a general meme sub, still got banned off reddit (and also got attacked by protectvoat, gamers rise up)

by "attempts at ban evasion" I meant BillionShekelSupreme etc. as well as DecillionPoundBeam(private sub.) there is one I'm still on that has somehow lasted 4 months

BSS wasn't ban evasion, though. It was because MDE was flooded with zoomers from CA and was drastically altering the original spirit of the sub. Ended up being fundamentally different than the premortem MDE.

Agreed about DPB (was never there, but was on a lot of other similarly named ones). Was the 4 month one SHS?

no, the live one starts with an O

Okay are you maybe?

As far as I’ve seen the remakes lack enough traffic to resemble the original.

Reddit's best-ever sub, after r/jailbait, IMO
