Now that you mention it, I think he stopped participating after someone allegedly harrassed him (s/teachsnowenglish was a place) and then after he was pinged in a thread he commented "this is my last comment here" and nuked himself. Don't remember all the details - didn't visit saidit very often - but he was on this website ALL DAY.

What Reddit bullshit you've encountered? by cloudrabbit in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]stupidmechanic 11 insightful - 3 fun11 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I posted a link to s/India in r/India and got Instabanned. I think it was automated. Quite steep considering they don't have autobans for saying the n-word and things like that.

Wtf has SaidIt done right that Ruqqus did wrong? by teelo in AskSaidIt

Apart from forums, this is the only layout/design that I like. Most of the content on homepage is in text (you can click for image), comments are neatly arranged in tree fashion, comments don't have to be small unlike on some other websites and a bunch more reasons.

Free speech on Reddit is essentially dead. by earthcake in WatchRedditDie

You have freedom of speech but they can't guarantee your account not being banned after the speech

Was CSS the only way to prevent non-subscribers from posting on reddit? by ccccccc in AskSaidIt

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

Yes. I browsed reddit on rif is fun and could downvote and participate (comment) despite not being a subscriber in numerous subreddits.

Not completely sure but I don't think there's any way for mods of a sub to see the list of their subscribers. Nor does any script check if you're a subscriber before posting your comment.

He's a politically correct leftist guy from reddit who's here to either troll or call us names, of course the only thing he looks forward to is political in nature. Probably doesn't talk to his parents because they don't believe in this 'gender is not sex' thing.

Saidit, what are some of the creepiest things on the internet that have kept you awake at night? by Fat_Neckbeard in AskSaidIt

[–]stupidmechanic 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Not creepy but horrifying. Mafia cuts open the stomach of a man, like, a big rectangle of his abdominal skin. He says something in some language, apparently his last words were calling out his mom. It broke my heart. Every time I recall that video I just want to hug my mother really tight and put my head onto her lap.

The worst part is that a bunch of dudes were just hanging in the background, drinking something, like it's no big deal. This means that it was probably a routine thing that happened in there.

I just want to remind you all, Reddit has headquarters you could be protesting. by antipissboyaktion in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]stupidmechanic 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Hell no. Even if this were possible for me I'd never waste my time protesting against some shitty private company for their shit antics. Might as well use the time here instead, make this thing bigger.

Remember when Reddit quarantined a subreddit for "threats against police"? by slushpilot in MeanwhileOnReddit

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

Correct. In addition, you can't visit a quarantined sub on the official mobile app until you log in on a browser, and opt in. Most of them have had their CSS styling disabled.

In reply to

"hmmm I haven't seen this one before, and it's not an issue with the archiver code.

what does

python --version 

output? maybe try running it with python3 like

python3 ./fetchlinks.py"

God, I'm an idiot!

python3 ./fetchlinks.py

made this error go away. Now going ahead. Need to set python3 as default interpreter instead of python2.7. Besides, I had to manually copy-paste the *.py files into my compilers, maybe that has something to do with this. Thanks man.

mfw i see men relentlessly competing in women's sports.

Thank god I know this will never happen in my country. Sportspersons from round here are very very conservative in nature and will resign before they let this happen.
