Default LOL you can get in trouble for upvoting a comment on Reddit

https://imgur.com/YifDNgm

This isn't my warning (I mostly just lurk) but when I was snooping around I came across a thread title that lead to this photo and I thought "wow".

Is this why (part of) Reddit is considered a joke?

EDIT: Img linking isn't working atm for me but anyway just click it to see.

So...someone posts something that is against the rules. You (royal "you") upvote, downvote, engage in any way and now you're in trouble?

Extreme overreaction IMHO. Trash policy.

It's because you're all a bunch of racist sexist bigots. If you were properly woke, you wouldn't be upvoting those posts. Please go watch The Last Jedi again so you can learn how to be a better man.

What if you upvoted a post not against the rules but then the op edited the post that will?

This would be akin to giving karma to a post on rage3d and then getting in trouble for it.

Basically they are punishing folk for agreeing with whatever the mods disagree with over there, without even making a post.

I'd have to see what was upvoted. They made an active choice to make it seen by others. If it was something disturbing, then I wouldn't have a problem with this warning.

I'm not even sure what it was either as it was a thread similar to the one I made commenting about the ridiculousness of it. I'm assuming the offending post was removed so unless they screen capped that, we likely won't ever see it.

That said, "upvoting" is waaaaaaaaaay different than posting another comment in agreeing with the post. Up-voting is more of a virtual nod and being punished just for nodding in agreement is actually quite fascist. But on reddit (or any forum for that matter) there is no freedom of speech so they are free to be totally authoritarian if they wish.

Thats my thought. I dont use Reddit so does a strike come from reddit itself or the sub reddit mod?


If its reddit as a whole a pretty bad look. But if its only for that sub reddit, well the mods in their respective sub reddits rule it how they want.

Each subreddit has their own rules and automations.

That being said, I don't understand why anything should be above being criticized just because it's within their rights to have their own rules. Being flagged for disagreeing with the mob?

Chances are if youre replying in any sub reddit you know what youre getting in to with who admins/owns the sub reddit.

Reddit is toxic as a whole anyway IMO. Im waiting for the next reddit to come around and knock reddit off the top. But it probably wont matter cause people will be people.

Speaking of Reddit, since when is it a thing to force the new, "mobile-friendly" layout on a sub?

https://old.reddit.com/t/coronavirus/

I will never willingly switch to the new layout but the above sub (not sure if it's the only one) is somehow forcing it upon me, despite my user preferences.

WTF?

Edit: Also, what's up with posts from other subs randomly appearing in that new /r/coronavirus view? Makes me hate the new layout even more...
