u/BillyBonbario VS. u/fckyuxuan1 for Theft of Karma and Reddit Gold over a well seasoned meme
What Happened: My story begins on December 22nd 2017, I was chatting with the lads on discord when a gave me an idea for a spicy new meme. Over the next 4 hours (4 hours and 11 minutes to be exact) I worked tirelessly on my work of art.
When it was finally complete I posted it to /sub/me_irl and later to /sub/gaming and /sub/memes (because karma). My posts gained traction and became my most upvoted posts at a total of 8239 karma at the time of writing this (8:57PM). Earlier today I realized that a post as popular as this surely had to be reposted elsewhere, so I did a quick reverse image search and found a few posts with 100-1000 karma, nothing too bad. However, through a comment on a repost in /sub/gaming I learned that my spicy meme had been reposted on /sub/globaloffensive not a day after I posted mine and had gained nearly twice the amount of Karma + a Reddit Gold.
Charges: Charge: Stealing 17,000 karma Charge: Stealing Reddit Gold Bonus Charge!: If this goes nowhere, charged with wasting my time writing this
Upvote if you think the defendant is GUILTY:
This is the Floating Jury Poll Bot. It captures public opinion. Give your vote below.
This bot does not replace the actual jury. That would be crazy
Yes you may not.
Send him to the pit of misery.
Judge jingjing shall take the honour of these matters however cannot call witnesses until a morning gin has been provided. Could somebody get some drinks flowing here before we proceed further!
I’m volunteering for Herald of nurgle
Your honour I cannot locate any gin. I heard a great mountain giant drunk the whole of the town supply. You shall have to deal with water until we sort this predicament out.
I volunteer for the defense. I think I may know a trick to get my client off the hook--or properly defenestrated.
/u/fckyuxuan1 said they didn't "expect" the repost to get so much attention, but they surely wanted it to.
