Redditors are literally some of the worst people you will EVER encounter on the internet. They're all the same exact people on Twitter by the way, so think I'm forgetting about them. They also all used to be Tumblr folk before Tumblr killed itself. Seriously... Before this site, I used to use Reddit and Quora. Quora's user base is all over the place (as a good website should be), but Reddit is full of some of the WORST, far-left, closed-minded, black-and-white thinking dipsh*ts ever.
I posted something about this two weeks ago, but I went back to Reddit just now. I had someone leave a comment in an unrelated post about something I posted SEVERAL weeks ago, implying I was "transphobic" for not fitting into his far-left progressive bullsh*t ideology. The new post or the post he was talking about, had nothing to do with this. I think because I didn't INCLUDE transwomen or something in it, he got all butthurt and posted in an unrelated comment. This is how MOST of Reddit is. Like 90% of Reddit are just these British bundle of sticks (I'm not actually talking about Britain, by the way). They're so g*ddamn annoying! You can't post ANYTHING without someone on there getting offended over it.
This was going to be a legitimate question on here; why are Redditors so damn annoying? But it kinda turned into a(nother) rant, so I changed it to a MyTake. I love the freedom on this site. Its replaced Reddit for me, and the sad part is, I only ever used Reddit to sh*tpost and joke around. I stopped taking it seriously years ago because it's impossible to take these manchildren (and womynchildren; don't want to upset the PC Reddit/Twitter crybabies) seriously.
I am not a Conservative or Republican. I used to be liberal, then moderately liberal in 2016. Then centrist in 2017. Trash like the Reddit/Twitter hivemind made me not want to associate myself with those folks. The people who find everything offensive, claim to be on the side of "peace, tolerance, and love" while all they do is bitch about Trump and conservatives, and can't take a single f*cking joke.
I don't expect anyone to read this. I don't even care if you do. I just needed to get that out of my system. Twitter/Redditors can go to hell. Whiny manbaby douchebags.

They're terrible... moderators just ban anyone who doesn't want to contribute to the echo chamber. Same shitty repeated jokes getting massively upvoted over and over again. Radical left-wing rhetoric on r/popular constantly that is so retarded as to say "centrists=nazis", and then "it's okay to punch nazis." Reddit literally having to kill off the conservative user base by quarantining then banning r/thedonald and banning them throughout normal subs for a mere "hey, maybe donald trump isn't actually as bad as hitler?" I get banned even from subs that I ideologically align with for making a point that doesn't fall in line.
But this site gets it's moderation right. Ban the spammers, bots, the exhibitionists. People can actually have genuine conversations rather than feeding into a hugbox and shitting out rainbows.
