the specific thread I'm referring to in the title: https://www.reddit.com/sub/GalaxyS8/comments/6grgqq/debunking_the_s8_pink_tint_issue_why_the_tech/
just go through the user's posts and comments and they're almost all trying to promote the brand. sort the posts by controversial for the best stuff :')
Looked through his comments and posts, needless to say, gr8 post m8.
Gr8 post m8, so much h8 from s8 shill
So... how much does shilling pay these days?
Almost seems like Apple bought the ad space, Reddit has become such a joke.
The people updating the live thread need to calm the hell down.
Let the guy finish his sentence, then compile that information into a single post. I don't need a new separate post each time the guy says any sort of spec, price, trendy buzzword, or whimsical adjective. It defeats the purpose of a live thread if it's clogged up with a disorganized clutter of irrelevant spam.
You hear that, Apple? Your Reddit shills are totally blowing it.
Hmmm ... millions of people want to see it... so they show it. What a bunch of sell-outs!!
All posts about this are being removed...
I don't see why it's so hard to accept that this sub is concerned with the way advertising/marketing has infiltrated our everyday social interactions, and not just with calling out suspected shill accounts.
Someone seems to be deleting the bot posts
No. You know what? Just go away.
There were a lot of comments like this.
I disagree. I don't support over-regulation, but Net Neutrality is to me (at its core) a necessary regulation to protect the free and open Internet we enjoy presently. At least in terms of ISP meddling. FCC may not be the right entity to enforce this regulation, but if not them Congress should pass a law that's focused on the core >issue, as in if you pay to access the Internet at a particular quality of service, you should be able to access all resources on the net at that quality of service. In my opinion Net Neutrality alone this isn't an overreach of government, it's a protection against future bad behavior by ISPs.
Imagine how this last election would have gone if the left-leaning social media sites had more freedom to censor the Trump supporters. Getting rid of NN is NOT the right answer.
/edit just pointing out that even over at the T_D where dissent is ruthlessly crushed there was considerable dissent.
Seems like they unstickied it, and deleted a ton of comments accusing OP of shilling.
I have never upvoted so many Trump supporters in my life.
As of right now, all the top comments are for net neutrality
How many socks do you have to sell to buy 200 upvotes? Is there a standard exchange rate on the black market or something
And a /sub/bestof post with ~500 upvoted made by himself. Disgusting.
The front page is a sellout, but it's hard to avoid it. I don't think reddit has ever come out about the obvious vote manipulation though?
And an archive of shitposts by users thanks /u/_MonsterZero_
The rapid deterioration of the sub itself is glorious.
Thank you for this. Lol that second post though.
What is this sub?? None of the other posts have even 100 upvotes, none of them are about socks, and they're all less than two hours old
I don't ever come to this sub but I just saw that post and instantly came here. This one was far too obvious. I've seen a lot of this company recently on social media.
I love listening to Audible.com books on tape while I shave and save with Dollar Shave Club. ding-dong What's that? Why it's my delivery from Shari's Berries, right to my door. I'll enjoy fresh fruit while updating my resume on ZipRecruiter and browsing my webpage, customized to fit my style with the help of SquaredSpace.
Pretty sure they have, at one time or another, sponsored every podcast in existence
As you're doing all that while you cook your fresh, easy to follow Blue Apron meal for dinner
Trailer got "leaked" Trailer gets released and this TIL (which im prety sure is a repost)
I'm sure people love DeadPool (Liked it myself) but this is more of a coincidence
Reddit For Sale: How We Bought The Top Spot For $200
And redditors still call /sub/hailcorporate a bunch of conspiracy loons.
This should have been obvious to anyone who has used this site for more than a month.
This is one of the top all-time posts on Reddit, which is how I re-found it myself. There's no way it wasn't viewed at least once a day, forget 6 months (which is the deletion time cap).
