/r/EverythingFoxes is hidden all across reddit because the admins don't like it. by ItherethinkIamfor in MeanwhileOnReddit

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

Pfft ok, yeah I don't really buy it. The reddit search algorithm has always been total garbage and anyone who's tried to use it knows that. The amount of times I've had to search for a sub through google instead of reddit itself is insane. As for the crosspost being removed? It wasn't, it's still there. As for him being shadowbanned? That's he says vs she says and I don't really see how it's proof of anything besides the fact that he was either spamming or self promoting too much.

Most importantly, why? Why on earth would reddit admins give a shit about a small fox sub? There is absolutely no reason and the reasons he gives are absolutely insane. The admins have shown time and time again they don't go about problem subs like this. They quarantine them and try to install mods they like and if that doesn't work they just ban them. OP is acting like a nutjob lol.

I don't think I've ever felt a true connection with another person. by Zombi in whatever

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

I look for the merit of what I'm feeling; I mean a 'feeling' is just a signal to the brain; interpretation, and ranking of that signal is a function of reasoning; the stickler though, you need critical thinking skills(seriously not being mean, but most people? LOL) to beneficially interpret said signal.

I don't mean it like that lmfao! I mean like, say, abortion for example. I feel that a womans body is hers to deal with as she pleases, so I'm pro abortion. Yet, I also think in the back of my mind that when does a human become a human? Where is the line there? I can't help but think in some way it IS murder because that baby would have become a full person if it was aborted. So these two feelings conflict and I don't exactly know how I feel on the subject. Saying it's fine makes me feel bad for the kid, but saying it's not goes against my principles. Do you see how something like this is conflicting?

Of course there is depression and anxiety type of "feelings", but I've been dealing with that for more than a decade now. The only reason I can even deal with them now is because I had to realize a long time ago that those feelings were just chemicals and would pass sooner or later. It's hard to stay on top of, but after a looooong time struggling with it nowadays I'm much better at telling myself that.

I can see what you're saying. I use the word "love" a lot because I've always been under the impression that those you love would know you the best, but my main point is I just don't feel "connected" to others. I like other people obviously and I am able to form bonds, but I just feel like it could be more. I don't know how I can make that bond "deeper" though.

I just feel like I'm missing something, you know? I feel like I should be feeling a certain way when I'm not and maybe that has to do with your last point:

Maybe, like maybe because i don't know, to open up you might need to know yourself a bit more. Helped me out.

I struggle with this so much as I get older. I just don't know what I can do to understand the person I am any more, you know? How do I know when I've comprehended myself fully? Will I ever? There's been times when I've thought I've known who I was, but I always end up doing something (sometimes a good thing, sometimes a bad thing) that shows I'm capable of much more than I knew.

Sometimes I'm in a situation where I have thoughts/feelings that contradict eachother. How can I say I know anything about myself when I don't even know how to feel? It all just gets so confusing and the deeper I think about myself and my wants/needs/thoughts/past actions the more "lost" I get. It doesn't help that revealing those parts of me, the parts that may help others get to know me better, feels somehow so vulnerable. Maybe that's my issue? Maybe I'm afraid of being taken advantage of by letting others in?

Well I can accept that miscommunication occurred and that was the point of my post. I'm sorry if I twisted your words, it was not my intention. I understand where you're coming from better.

My main point remains, though. This user is not advocating for left dominance, they are advocating for equal representation of all views.

I just so happen to hold those same views. I came here to learn and speak with others with wildly different views. I think you and I understand perfect 100% balanced representation is impossible; there will always be a slant, but we can at least try to correct it.

It's like how conspiracies are very popular on this site. I personally find 90% of them complete bullshit, but I'd never tell anyone that they shouldn't post them. I argue against them when I feel like putting forth the effort thus correcting the "slant". I'm not censoring, I'm representing the contrary.

I agree with your 3rd point, but I feel you're completely misreading his point in the first 2 quotes.

He's not saying he wants this place to be a left leaning liberal paradise. He's saying he's worried the users kicked off reddit (who are much more likely to be right-leaning) will drown out left leaning stances. He's actually advocating for free speech and equal representation, while it seems like you're advocating for censorship with how your response amounting to "If you want more left representation then you should just leave." If he had said "We should promote those with left leaning views" then you'd be correct, but he isn't and you're not.

He's not advocating to silence the right or dissenting voices, he's advocating for more representation for the left. You're actually the one advocating for censorship/anti-first amendment rights right now...

r/CringeAnarchy to be likely banned soon by techguy69 in MeanwhileOnReddit

Holy shit I just got on the sub minutes before it was banned, weird. Tried to view the main sub and I'm suddenly getting a blank page with "Not Found" as the only thing on it.

Edit: Oh wait, it's back now? Wtf is going on.

Migrant here, banned for dissenting political opinions by MuhammadIsAPedophile in whatever

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

I've said many controversial opinions on reddit and many political opinions. The only time I've ever been banned from a subreddit is when I posted on thedonald during the 2016 election (arguing against them, mind you) and it was a ban from that nutjob hugbox offmychest. They auto banned anybody who posted there regardless of context.

Whenever I see people say shit like OP I always roll my eyes. I'm sure it happens, but it's not likely. What is likely is that OP was acting like an asshole or said some really fucked up things and labels it a "dissenting political opinion".

It was an amazing commentary on the 2016 presidential election. Completely captured the atmosphere of that era and was a stunning recreation of the terror it brought. Great movie, 10/10 can't wait for the sequel: The Happeninging.

Well of course, the website looks like it's straight out of the 90's! Either way, the substance was already there and has been for years. It's not a bombshell, more like a re-release.

Issue regarding the pornographic rule by HorseMeat in SaidIt

[–]Zombi 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Where is your logic at? How does masturbating lead to a mediocre life? Please, connect those dots for me as I cannot possibly see how a good life and masturbation are mutually exclusive. Do you have any proof of what you're claiming? Or do you just have opinions...?

At least that paper has actual sources and people with proof of their education backing it, unlike you. You're just some random internet person, how do I know YOU'RE not a government shill trying to oppress natural human desires?

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

I think you see my point lol. If there was some actual discussion to be gained from porn then I'd be with you, but we can have many discussions about porn without it being on the site (this thread is a brilliant example of that). It's just not worth the risk/effort for how little it would actually contribute to the site's goals.

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

Well I'm not against porn per-se. I just think the reasoning of "it brings about novel discussions" is a bit bullshit lol. It's to jerk off too and NEVER in my life have I walked away from a porn sub/site and thought "Wow, I really had a thought provoking discussion there." I've always walked away satisfied and ready for bed, though.

There isn't a "no nudity" rule, there's just a no porn rule. You want to discuss the human body and it's nude glory? I don't think magnora7 would be against it.

You want to post a chick getting DP'd in "Big Black Cocks 5"? Yeah, I don't think that will lead to any kind of meaningful discussion. This is a site that's set on meaningful/dense encounters with thought put into those discussions.

Again, I just wanna say I have no problem with porn. I watch it all the time; love the stuff. I just think it goes against the goal of the site and doesn't spawn much meaningful discussion beyond "nice tits".
