SubredditDrama

What happened to drama?

What happened to drama?
What happened to drama?

Like Icarus they flew too close to the sun and burned along with their dreams.

On a serious note pretty sure some of the mods made /sub/picsofdeadwhitepeople and that may have been the final straw

I'm about 50/50 on whether something actually happened, or it's just the mods inciting meta drama like normal.

Huffman, explain to me how there's a rule against bullying but not against racism. How the fuck is racism not bullying? Is that just there so people don't bully the racists?

The storm has been calmed. CBTS_Stream has been banned.

The storm has been calmed. CBTS_Stream has been banned.

/sub/cbts_stream has been banned for violation of Reddit's content policy, specifically for encouraging and inciting violence and posting personal and confidential information.

Not to worry, /sub/conspiracy is on the case:

Full thread

Were they banned for getting too close to the truth?

Classic /sub/politics is just as bad repeated multiple times.

One conspiracy poster thinks that Reddit is trying to SILENCE people AGAIN

Drama thread

Exiled posters have moved to /sub/greatawakening and/or voat, which I will not link here.

Some background for those unfamiliar with CBTS_Stream:

SRD thread from yesterday where CBTS_Stream discussed Tillerson's firing

Archive links to yesterday's drama

Earlier SRD thread that partially explains the sub's beliefs

EDIT: . This'll probably get you put on a list.

EDIT2: For those of who you don't know what CBTS_Stream is, CBTS stands for "Calm Before the Storm". /u/moby323 has a good explanation of what they believed in:

It was a pro-Trump subreddit that focused on "deep state" conspiracy theories.

In particular, they believe there is a twitter/4chan user named Q that is actually a high level government official who is leaking info about the deep state. The deep state, among it's many other evils, runs a global network of child sex slaves. The money raised from this network, and from the sale of child pornography, goes to enrich the Clintons and is the real source for most of the money that funds Democratic campaigns. Yes, really.

They also think that Trump's main reason to run for office was to take down the deep state. They believe that in Trump's tweets all of the misspellings, random use of capital letters, and weird punctuation is intentional and is actually part of an elaborate code that Trump is using to communicate about the deep state, and that this code has predicted everything from the Las Vegas shooting to the California mudslides. Yes, really.

The reason they were banned is encouraging violence and doxxing. One example is remember a while back where that train full of GOP congressmen hit a truck, they got a hold of the trucking company's number and harassed the shit out of them and accused them to be deep state operatives, child rapists etc. Yes, really.

tl;dr

Batshit crazy Trump supporters who think everything is part of a deep state conspiracy and who love to encourage violence and doxxing.

There is also a NYmag article that explains the conspiracy here

The_donald is also mass removing any threads in this, here is one example

Here is one page of their removed threads for an example. The mods are just sitting on /new/ all afternoon

https://snew.github.io/sub/The_Donald/new/?after=t3_84gbqv&count=100

Banning them probably won't accomplish what you want. However, letting them fall apart from their own dysfunction probably will. Their engagement is shrinking over time, and that's much more powerful than shutting them down outright.

It was when Spez originally wrote it, and it still is now

Is this a shitpost

Edit: oops yes it is

Bugs me tremendously. Admins are clearly signaling that at some point the_dipshits will be shut down, but all this circling the drain on the smaller, more batshit subreddits does is give them time to organize a fallback plan.

/sub/MurderedByWords, the mods of which are already openly Trump supporting, is switching to an openly Trump supporting sub, where "bullshit anti-Trump" content will be removed.

Their mod:

I literally just removed a bullshit anti-trump tweet that had over 1500 upvotes in two hours. It would have been on the Reddit Front page in less than an hour. A tweet, from 2013. A five year old tweet.

Political shitposts like that "feature" here all the time and if you're not noticing then you're either not paying attention or blinded by bias.

Upvoted replies to him (the "leftists" are all downvoted):

Pretty much everything in the top posts of all time is a leftist circlejerk post

reddit liberal slant would almost definitely make this sub an anti-trump circle jerk

It's just fucking cowardly. "No politics" is a rule that only protects donald posters, because the rest of the world wants to call Trump a retard when he is a retard, which is daily. His supporters can't exist in an environment where everyone can speak freely, because everyone will tell them to shut the fuck up.

No one wishes we had a nice boring president more than me, one that wouldn't throw tantrums daily like my fucking 8 year-old niece when she finds out that Justin Bieber already has a girlfriend. I don't want to think about this. But since we do have one that goes into hysterics like my Latina hairdresser when she finds out that Juanita from down the block said what about her daily, I want to say that. If so many people want to tell you you're a piece of shit, maybe the problem is you.

Now it's just another the T_D cancer had metastasized into and claimed as its own. A full subscription-ectomy is the only sure treatment.

It's a shame to have to unsubscribe. I enjoyed that sub.

I took a quick gander at it for the first time just now, and it looked like a fun sub. Some good, neutral stuff in there, except that the comments are cancer and it didn't take long to start seeing posts with a very specific angle.

Neat.

Some of the users there actively hoped for the extermination of all non-whites and non-straights. It was scary and sad and infuriating at the same time.

Good fucking riddance.

Subreddit that has a bunch of white nationalist iconography in its header and sidebar? I'm surprised it took reddit this long to ban them! loljk no one at reddit cares

lol the subreddit  logo in their header was a nazi symbol. 

Edit : https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/se%7Dnaz.html

look up the symbol of "Swedish Resistance Movement (SMR)"

https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/s/se%7Dsr2.gif

"The Swedish Resistance Movement (SMR) is a Swedish, militant Neo-Nazi organization that exists in Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö and Linköping. The Leader is Klas Lund, former member of White Aryan Resistance (VAM), and convicted of manslaughter. The aims of Swedish Resistance Movement is to establish a Nordic government by revolution. The organization says their fight will require bloodshed. Like many neo-Nazis and white nationalists groups, they call themselves the resistance, because they consider themselves to be fighting Jewish-Marxist tyranny."

Reddit named in Russian propaganda campaign, discuss this dramatic happening below

Reddit named in Russian propaganda campaign, discuss this dramatic happening below

Context: A new DailyBeast report has come out involving a leak from Kremlin based intelligence agencies that Reddit was specifically targeted as a potential spreading vector for election based news, a relevant segment below:

Hundreds—and sometimes thousands—upvotes on subreddits like /sub/the_donald and /sub/hillaryforprison in the run-up to the 2016 election. Trolls purporting to represent the troll farm promised an Ask Me Anything session in October, but the Q-and-A never occurred.

I've compiled some drama below:

Bonus the_donald Drama:

the_donald mods announce something to try to combat bots. They claim to be independently verifying the post histories of their users

A juicy tidbit:

Already being asked about the data. Here is why we won't provide it:

Since the usernames were extracted with the data and that could lead to potential brigading, I, as an independent reviewer of the data (I was afk during this time period at a business function), can confirm that it is accurate and complete. We don't normally do this after one of these (Syria, Kushner/Bannon, Kushner/McMaster, 2A, etc.) but were curious on how a brigade from the top of /sub/all would fair on that front.

And we don't divulge our methodology so that Shareblue/CTR can figure it out.

If you don't think we can investigate or put something together, look at this post and tell me if you think we don't have more skills than journo's who do this shit for a living?

Will continue to update as this drama spreads

Well no shit Reddit was targeted. All the other social media outlets were. They at least recognized it was a problem meanwhile Reddit admins are like, "nbd the organic voting will fix it"

Oh man, first Trumps U-Turn on gun control and now this, its gonna be great month.

Im curious if this forces a reaction out of the admins.

Cold day in hell. Spez is doing everything he can to not do anything.

The only problem is the voting system is pretty easy to game. If Unidan did it then a dedicated organization certainly could

r/The_Donald is imploding, following Trump's pro-gun control comments, users upset and expressing distaste with Trump, mods are banning countless longtime posters / anyone disagreeing with Trump. It's thoroughly good - and happening right now.

It's literally the ENTIRE comment section, but I know mods here will remove if I post to that, so here are a bunch of sub-threads:

(1) https://www.reddit.com/sub/The_Donald/comments/80z30g/live_president_trump_meets_with_bipartisan/...

https://www.reddit.com/sub/The_Donald/comments/80z30g/live_president_trump_meets_with_bipartisan/...

So the mods of /sub/the_donald are having a full-on ban-athon. Essentially, today Donald Trump expressed sentiments that could be considered pro-gun reform (this is another, perhaps more apt interpretation). He suggested standing up to the NRA, he called a senator "afraid of the NRA" and he also said, on national TV, verbatim: "Take the guns first, go through due process second." (as they might say - "wew lad")

Right-wing pro-gun people are incredibly upset with him. Especially in this thread, where his reddit user supporters are airing out their grievances with his words, and calling him out, and /sub/the_donald users are turning on eachother like never before.

The threads provided are just some of the drama. Explore the whole comment section.

Additionally, because of the crazy heavy-handed moderation going on there right now, some of these threads may be deleted. If so, let me know and I can update this post so it doesn't link to nothing.

Edit: Here is the ceddit link to the thread - currently, 316 comments out of 1308 scanned have been deleted by mods. This is glorious drama.

Edit 2: Here is the archived thread from shortly after I made this post. Lots (maybe all?) of these comments have been deleted since, there's some real gold in here folks so it's worth perusing for some good laughs after getting your fill of the current thread (will also be nice to have later, as - at this rate - the /sub/the_donald mods will delete every comment in the thread).

Edit 3: ok ok weet jesus - It's been emphatically demanded by a dozen people that I put an epilepsy warning before the gif in the link in Edit 4. And I just gotta say, if you're epileptic you can't just go clickin on links in reddit threads like some kinda fuckin cowboy. Some of us were taught to wear bike helmets, and some of us were taught to treat the internet like a mine field of deadly gifs lol - you gotta look out for yourselves ok, flashy gifs are everywhere and you gotta keep your head on a swivel, no one can do that for you, you're fucking warriors.

Edit 4: We're on the front page - "GET IN HERE - IT'S HABBENING"

Edit 5: Someone PM'd me saying I should put a warning about the gif in Edit 3 for people with epilepsy. So, essentially /sub/the_donald's drama is literally giving people seizures.

Edit 6: Someone sent me this Removeddit link where you can see deleted comments / refer back to once the mods over there shit-can this whole thread - appears to be working better than the ceddit link. Enjoy.

Edit 7: removed comments: 825/2314 (35.7%) praise the lawd

Hey remember when T_D was the only place on the internet where people could disagree and have a civilized discussion?

No, I really don't.

If Obama would have said some shit like this, Republicans would've been drawing up articles of impeachment.

Omg is it happening

This exchange in particular had me in stitches

I... I don't know to feel. It's like watching a robot realize it's a robot. This is some next level cyberpunk psychological thriller.

TL;DR: Someone's getting de-modded.

Lucky75 just posted that nobody is stepping down/being removed over it. Because fuck the userbase, that's why.

Hmmm so according to the mod himself, he was "far-left", then Antifa's actions pushed him to the right because "if you don't agree with movements like Antifa, you're considered to be racist by the far-left". And so he "sarcastically" stated he was becoming a white nationalist.

Yeah, I'm totally convinced Antifa took this guy from far-left to white nationalism in the time it takes most people to decide what car to buy.

He said that removing mods would make it look like /sub/canada supported white supremacists. Weak.

Meanwhile, racism against Indigenous Canadians is absolutely rampant on their front page.

"I used to be a hardcore leftie but some SJW called me a shitlord and now I'm a MAGA Trump supporter"

Seems to be the MO of people like JonTron and Ian Miles Cheong, people with no personal beliefs who only wants to trigger liberals.

Most of that is call-out in relation to the mods behavior on slack, there's not much actual drama and arguments. You also needs to include it in a self-post since the linked thread is more dogpiling then actual slapfighting. This thing has been submitted like twenty times today and none of them have followed SRD rules. This is great drama but until someone does that we can't approve it.

If SRD is how you derive entertainment, then I assure you that you are, in fact, the joke
