Here are a few of the PMs we've received today. Threatening and harassing messages like these are a daily occurance for The_Donald moderators (though today brought more than usual). We contacted the admins about threats, doxxing, etc. for months, with little to no response, before finally giving up entirely. This treatment doesn't seem to apply site-wide, only to users of our subreddit.

Obviously, today's barrage of threats stemmed from my previous sticky. Now, I'd like to point out again that one of Reddit's many means of silencing The_Donald is to prevent any stickied posts from being visible on /all. I mention this to point out that the only way these people could have seen the sticky in order to respond to it, would be from mentions of The_Donald, and the post itself, on other subreddits. Also worth noting that that stickied post is currently sitting at 60% upvotes. Brigading? It's apparently alright, for everyone but us (not that our users brigade). Of course, that's not to mention the bots that have instantly downvoted every post posted to T_D for months (again, admins have been contacted multiple times, yet the bots run today).

According to the admins, "...which as you know, increases cross-community harassment and harbors animosity between users. We'd like to prevent that from happening." Subreddit mentions only seems to apply to us. We've been censored in the past because of a single (unproven, not screenshotted) harassing PM to a very liberal sub mod. Again, this only seems to apply to us.

In return for /u/OhSnapYouGotServed's harassment, she has been temporarily suspended from Reddit. "She wouldn't have gotten raped if she weren't dressed that way."

Edit- This is our current moderator list. If mods are added that aren't on this list, it's not us. http://i.magaimg.net/img/k7w.jpg

Reddit SUCKS. It's a flaming pile of garbage

You censor our subreddit, manipulate our upvotes, and edit our comments to make it seem like community is turning against itself just because the baby of a CEO had his feelings hurt.

Well guess what, you will NEVER, EVER change the fact that Donald Trump is your president. I openly laugh at your face Reddit - try it all, you'll never be able to dismiss and evade the fact that Trump is your president and will be for the next 8 years!

Admins also do not care about the bots that run rampant on this website and that are downvoting are posts. We have evidence of this. We have seen links to scripts of downvote bots, and pastebin texts that are filled thousands of OUR names in which ShariaBlue automatically tags us with flairs in order to auto-downvote us.

The fact is this, Reddit: We reached /all so many times because of the energy on this sub. We did not reach the front page in an "unfair" way, as you have lied about that many times. You got so butthurt about the fact that this subreddit was the most active subreddit with the highest energy ever, and you simply couldn't stand that we were promoting a man who we wanted to become President, so you put restrictions on us that you put on NOBODY else. That's really pathetic

They push us into a corner and harass the FUCK out of us, and act like little pussies when we fight back. /u/Spez is a dickless bitch.

THE TOLERANT LEFT, EVERYBODY

Honestly, fuck this website. I barely even come to this sub and I'm far from an ideologue, but it's pretty plain how blatantly the administration is profiling this place. If they take this sub down I'm out of here.

TIL Talaat Pasha, mastermind of Armenian Genocide, was assassinated by an Armenian revolutionary and genocide survivor. Despite the assassination occurring in broad daylight, and with the assassin pleading guilty, he was acquitted by reason of temporary insanity. He is a national hero in Armenia.

TIL Talaat Pasha, mastermind of Armenian Genocide, was assassinated by an Armenian revolutionary ...

Talaat Pasha had been convicted and sentenced to death in absentia in the Turkish courts-martial of 1919–20, and was viewed as the main orchestrator of the genocide.

you might even argue that that Tehlirian was doing something patriotic for his old empire or the successor state, Turkey.

worth noting that Turkey to this day denies the genocide.

Good on him. Sometimes a man needs to take matters in his own hands for true justice.

I'm a quarter Armenian, but my great grandma was a death march survivor, saved by a Syrian. She got interviewed by my Dad who recorded it, and then it was later translated by one of my family members. The result was an hour and a half log epic about he horrors of the genocide and how Armenia was before and after.

E: Look at my post below, it follows up with this the best I could.

Having Armenian American friends I've heard all about getting it more widely known

TIFU by cleaning my humidifier and almost killing my entire family

TIFU by cleaning my humidifier and almost killing my entire family

Obligatory - This actually did happen today.

My family and I live in the sun-blasted hellscape that is central Arizona, USA. The whole area is a hot, dry desert, and if you live outside of the city (as we do) it's common to see relative humidity in the teens, and single digits are not uncommon. For those who don't live somewhere that's anathema to life, that's very dry. Since we aren't a family of kangaroo rats, we keep the air in our house comfortable with an evaporative humidifier. Basically, a pump drips water on an absorbent pad, and a fan pulls air through that pad to blow out more humid air to the house. It's one of the full household-sized jobs that will humidify your air with twelve gallons of water a day.

For various reasons not apropos to this TIFU, the humidifier hadn't been maintained well for the last few weeks. Today I decided to change the filter and give it a good cleaning. Possibly inspired by another recent TIFU, I also decided to attack the calcium buildup with a 1/3 vinegar solution. While cleaning, though, I noticed a sliminess that made me think that there was bacterial growth. "No big deal," thought I. Eventually a biofilm will grow on something that's always wet, no matter what precautions you take. I scrubbed off the biofilm, cleaned the calcium scale with my vinegar solution, and reassembled the unit.

Here's where the TIFU really starts. Some parts of the mechanism aren't accessible - they are in the pump, water lines, etc. I decided to run my vinegar solution though for a few minutes to dissolve some calcium deposits in places I couldn't reach. "But," thought I, proving that too much thinking causes trouble, "there's probably bacteria in there, too." I figured I should add something that would kill the bacteria and what, I figured, is better at that than bleach?

Right now, readers with some chemistry are thinking, "Uh, dude..." Yeah, I know. Or, I should have known. But I didn't think it through, so I poured some bleach into the humidifier, followed by the remains of my vinegar solution, and turned it on to pump the mixture into the water lines. Almost immediately thereafter, I took a whiff and started coughing. At that point the little voice that remembered my college chemistry finally was heard. Turns out mixing a sodium hypochlorite solution (like, say, bleach) with a weak acid (like, say, vinegar) creates chlorine and chloramine gasses, both of which are very toxic - like, they have been used as actual chemical weapons toxic, and I'd just put them in a goddamn distribution system.

I immediately unplugged the humidifier and carried it to the bathroom, turned on the vent fan, and poured my ersatz chemical weapon down the bathtub drain. Of course, the pouring process gave me another good snoot of the offending vapors. So now the house is airing out, the wife, son, and dog are playing in the backyard for a bit, the wife is trying to mail back my engineering degree, and for the next few days I'll be coughing like I've got the black lung, Pa.

TL;DR - Tried to clean my humidifier, accidentally tried to kill my family trench warfare style.

EDIT - Words

EDIT 2 - Front page, neat. It has been pointed out that there wouldn't be chloramine, just chlorine - I think this story shows that chemistry isn't my forte. Finally, to those giving me shit for making sure to mention that I'm an engineer, I have to - if everyone doesn't know, I'm just some guy with a lot of student loan debt. Can't have that.

EDIT 3 - Lot's of fake internet points AND my first gold!? It's almost worth the war crime! Thanks!

I love the bit where your wife tries to mail back your degree because you decided to go all WWI on them

I can't even blame her. That's, like, chemistry 101.

everytime I read "almost killing" in the TIFU people used bleach the wrong way.

Nope, aerospace. I'm thinking of fluid dynamics, dammit!

Still embarrassing. I had to take a lot of chemistry.

11 Minutes

A cop was patrolling late at night in a well-known lover’s spot, famous for all obscene activities. He sees a couple in a car, with the interior light brightly glowing.

The cop carefully approaches the car to get a closer look. Then he sees a young man behind the wheel, reading a computer magazine. He immediately notices a young woman in the rear seat, knitting. Puzzled by this surprising situation, the cop walks to the car and gently raps on the driver’s window.

The young man lowers his window. “Uh, yes, officer?”

The cop says: “What are you doing?”

The young man says: “Well Officer, I’m reading a magazine.”

Pointing towards the young woman in the back seat the cop says: “And her, what is she doing?”

The young man shrugs: “Sir, I believe she’s knitting a pullover sweater.”

Now, the cop is totally confused.. A young couple, alone, in a car, at night in a Lover’s lane… and nothing obscene is happening!

The cop asks: “What’s your age, young man?”

The young man says “I’m 22, sir.”

The cop asks: “And her…what’s her age?”

The young man looks at his watch and replies:

“She’ll be 18 in 11 minutes.”

and so goes the intro for another barely legal porno movie

That was good.

gently raps on the driver’s window

 

Palms are sweaty Knees weak, arms are heavy

I'd like to see that with the 11 minutes of knitting and magazine reading left in

It must be hard being a celebrity couple and one spouse is way more successful and popular than the other. Chris' filmography is peanuts compared to the greatness of Anna's work on the Scary Movie films.

Could we share a rowboat, could a rowboat support you?

Not even close. I have been told I have a great personality though. xD

"Chris! Chris!! Chrii-iiis! CHRII-IIIS!!" "I'M BUSY!" "I'M BUSY, YOU STUPID DICK!!"
