/u/hauntedbypaul VS. /u/rkniepmann for First Degree Bamboozling And Misdemeanor Not Naming His Kid After Thanos

Good people of /sub/karmacourt, thank you for taking the time to read through my case. Earlier today, on the subreddit /sub/thanosdidnothingwrong, one /u/rkniepmann claimed that if his post got over ten thousand upvotes, he would name his firstborn child Thanos. Approximately one hour after it was posted, and long before it hit the requisite number of upvotes, I posted in response saying that anything short of a birth certificate being produced would result in my pressing charges. He has now updated the post to say that his girlfriend flat out said no to the idea, revealing that he had no real plans to follow through, as the idea had not been discussed with his significant other beforehand.

I consider shitposting to be an artform. I think that there is no point in coming up with an elaborate joke only to fail to follow through at the last minute. I hope the court hears my case and that a team can be assembled for the trial in short order, as most of the people involved could be snapped out of existence on the subreddit in question at any minute.

All relevant evidence is contained in the first link to his original post, where he has admitted to failing to follow through. I demand either a swift sentencing or that he at least make his kid's middle name Thanos or at the very least Gamora as an acceptable settlement.

THE ENTIRETY OF THE PEOPLE OF REDDIT VS. u/sneksnek-official and the reddit admins for MULTIPLE CHARGES OF BAMBOOZLING

THE ENTIRETY OF THE PEOPLE OF REDDIT VS. u/sneksnek-official and the reddit admins for MULTIPLE CHARGES OF BAMBOOZLINGOn April 1st, 2018, there were rumours of the 2018 April Fool's Event involving seeks, badgers and mushrooms. There were numerous subreddits that supposedly related to the event. However, as it can be seen [here](hhttps://www.reddit.com/r/aprilfools/comments/88u4ut/_/dwn8grq/) r/sneksnek has turned out to be FAKE. u/spez has also revealed that there will be no April Fool's this year, as can be seen here. This is obviously first degree BAMBOOZLING, so I therefore accuse u/sneksnek-official and the admins of reddit, specifically u/spez, for:

234 MILLION counts of FIRST DEGREE BAMBOOZLING (Estimate from here

General fakeness

ANGERING millions of users across the globe

Evidence:

EXHIBIT A: u/sneksnek-offical confirming that r/sneksnek is fake

EXHIBIT B: u/spez officially announcing that there is no April Fool's this year - this is a verified image

EXHIBIT C: u/spez announced that April Fool's was in the works, but it clearly is not. Credit to u/Zombiex100.

Normally I would object but no-one will probably ever want to defend you so yes, go on.

I would like to contribute some evidence. Spez said here that April Fools was in the works, yet clearly nothing of the like is here. This is an extreme bamboozle.

The people of Reddit VS. The Reddit Admins for great bamboozling

The people of Reddit VS. The Reddit Admins for great bamboozling

What Happened:

On /sub/sneksnek there was a great countdown of sneks. All of a sudden, we were bamboozled.

[CHARGES]: Great bamboozling, making people A N G E R Y

[EVIDENCE]: /sub/sneksnek /sub/snakesnake /sub/kenskens

I'll be the Snektective.

This class action lawsuit against the admins demands compensation of one gold for each user affected.

We expected a fun and enjoyable event or experiment similar to the button or the place, but instead we got a slow, dragged out event that did nothing but disappoint and waste everyone's time.

Now it could have been excused as some people just doing a prank or just having a laugh, but the fact that it shows the message "🐍ssssoon🐍" if you put the cursor over Reddit icon on the homepage of Reddit, shows that this was indeed more than just a prank, and instead it was the official Reddit April fools event of 2018.

The people are angry and demands justice.

I don't want to jump to any premature conclusions, but it's starting to look like the people have a case.

u/LittleTyler has posted the exact same meme. With the same bloody title too.

u/smancini82 claims the dog in the image is hers and the man that op claims to be is actually her boyfriend and then she provided images of both her dog and her boyfriend as proof

/u/awkward-_-silence vs. /u/StarryeyedProfligate over exploitation and theft of comment for karma

/u/awkward-_-silence vs. /u/StarryeyedProfligate over exploitation and theft of comment for karma

What Happened:

Imagine the deep underbelly of /sub/trebuchetmemes and a single karma hungry catapult fan. The accused /u/StarryeyedProfligate comments three simple words on a trebuchet meme: "Catapults for Life!"

One can only ponder the purpose of this comment. Perhaps to troll the readers, or perhaps an attempt at cheeky humor gone awry. Either way the result was far from intended. This comment now sits at -35 downvotes on a post with only 9 upvotes; this comment obviously drew some attention. The accused needed to make that sweet sweet karma back, but how? Of course, screenshot the next reply and post both comments to the sub to win back approval of trebuchet memes fans.

This is where I enter the story good jurors, because I am the author of the stolen comment in question. /u/StarryeyedProfligate screencapped my comment along with his and reposted this to the /sub/trebuchetmemes sub; and this post made /sub/all . Is there a case to be made, claiming that he directly stole my comment and exploited it for karma gain? It has been brought to my attention that since I responded to his comment, that gives him the right to repost. Is this the word of the blessed KarmaCourt?

Prosecutor on standby, I'd like to see mr /u/StarryeyedProfligate charged with

Baiting and or Trolling

Karma Laundering

General Scumbaggery

I volunteer to be the homeless guy that fell asleep in the courtroom, but sticks around for the trial.

Now I'm a simple man, I've never made the front page, I earn most of my karma from comments instead of those big fancy posts y'all are so into, heck I don't even have a six figure lifetime earnings, but I believe in honest karma for honest work. Original commentary, inside jokes and the occasional pop culture reference are all my daddy needed to make his karma, same as his daddy before him, if it was good enough for them it's good enough for me.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, some o' y'all might be thinkin' to yourselves "Where's the harm? This man didn't lose any karma by having his comment reposted" and to that I say this. If men like my daddy and myself and the plaintiff here are graftin' away tryna make ends meet and some scallywag like the defendant can come along and repost their content then I ask you, what motivates a man to graft? Should we all turn to this scoundrel's ways and make a bunch of karma for low effort reposts? It ain't, I say, it ain't right for good, hardworking individuals such as this man or others like you may know yourselves to work his fingers to the bone while the very scourge that kills subreddits that we shoulda been keepin' tabs on long ago can swoop in and make all o' that karma of of his hard work.

This ain't a stealin' issue, heck this ain't even a copyright issue. What it is, I say what it is, is a moral issue. I encourage the court to not only award judgement to the plaintiff, but to set a precedent that such actions are not to be taken lightly. I hereby request that the court award this man the sum of twelve thousand karma. I'll do my part your honour, will you do yours?

u/BillyBonbario VS. u/fckyuxuan1 for Theft of Karma and Reddit Gold over a well seasoned memeWhat Happened:
My story begins on December 22nd 2017, I was chatting with the lads on discord when a PUBG screenshot 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.    

(The times in these screenshots are in AEST)
iteration 1
iteration 2
Final product    

When it was finally complete I posted it to r/me_irl and later to r/gaming and r/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 r/gaming I learned that my spicy meme had been reposted on r/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    



Evidence:
My r/Me_Irl Post
My r/gaming Post

/u/bravobet has earned 25 and a half thousand karma for lying! The Post Mentioned: https://www.reddit.com/sub/gaming/comments/7mg7o7/when_you_ask_your_parents_for_call_of_duty_wwii/ BravoBet claims to have recieved Call of Duty: World at War for Chrismas when he asked for Call of Duty: World War II.

Proof: https://www.reddit.com/sub/WWII/comments/7frpm8/wow_my_hq_lobby_is_full/ https://www.reddit.com/sub/WWII/comments/7csqkz/i_think_we_scared_her_off/ https://www.reddit.com/sub/WWII/comments/7csqck/sorry_im_late_boys/ These posts are all in the Call of Duty: World War II subreddit. They are all from a month ago, and they are BravoBet's content. Why would he ask for a game for Chrismas if he already owned it? I ask for the removal of the 25 thousand+ karma /u/bravobet has recieved!

All who agree say "aye"

All that oppose can shove it

Edit: the ayes have it. What's his face is guilty

Edit2: u/bravobet is his name

Who else is here from /sub/gaming? Also, i have an extra pitch fork handy, its a little broken tho

Could this be like a class action lawsuit? I wanna get in on that 25k karma. For damages of course...
