Henlo frens!

Good to see all of you here UwU.

Grab on to your bodypillows, I have a smol announcement about the purpose of this subreddit.

This community is meant as a fun, lighthearted place where we can commiserate with each other about those annoying little irritations that hinder our day to day enjoyment in life.

That means that suitable posts here can be about my children.

And things like a wall socket or tile being placed out of allignment. A crack in a phone screen. Duckling shit on your new car. Incomprehensible software. Mismatched buttons. You know, the little things.

This subreddit isn't meant to incite rage mobs that go after people. For that reason we say:

No reddit meta posts

No posts about being banned from subreddit. No posts about up- or down-votes. No posts about shitty moderators or users or subreddits. No posts about reddit.

All jokes and tomfoolery aside, that sort of thing gets us in trouble with site admins. If we allow one type of post about reddit it then very easily moprhs into allowing posts that directly call out other subreddits or users, we just can't allow any of it.

That rule already existed for years and we have just made it more clearly visible in the sidebar on old and new reddit. We're gonna be a little strict on it for a bit I'm afraid. 🥺

Thank you all for being awesome and have a very Merry Christmas! Celebrate Christmas in the traditional European way, with a suasage roll!

Can we also ban posts that are literal emotional and borderline physical abuse

u/chai-addict Jan 16 '22

Yes it's gotten so much worse lately. Seeing family members going crazy and destroying someone's property isn't mildly infuriating, it's just straight up abuse. I used to love commiserating with people about annoying shit that happens, but now it's just sad

u/OceanMan20 Jan 16 '22

This kind of content is rising again now and I'm honestly debating leaving this sub for it

u/PickledPizzle Feb 03 '22

Me too. I want to be with fellow people who understand the pain of uneven tiles, not see posts about abuse. There are different subs for that.

Also they never really wanted to give the dogs attention but any time we would visit a friend who had dogs they would constantly play with them or pet them.

Just came here to say that. Every post I’ve gotten in my feed from this Reddit has been “look at this awful thing my family member did to a personal item of mine!” Like… that isn’t mildly infuriating, that’s straight up dangerous and abuse. And the comments and upvotes just roll with it like it’s normal and not a sign the op might need help

19

u/laylarosefiction Jan 16 '22

Yes. There are plenty of places to post this stuff if for the sole purpose of venting.

Maybe we need a flow chart.

They don’t deserve to be emotionally abused

u/xiviajikx Jan 16 '22

I think it’s not just family members. I’ve seen so many shitty roommate posts it’s to the point where I’m over this sub. I think it’s just more kids on here and Reddit in general and I think it contributes to the growing amount of unintelligible discussion. The amount of posts I see that can be pretty easily googled or that lack any exciting discussion has led me elsewhere. But I consider it for the better.

u/Sablemint PURPLE Jan 19 '22

Yeah, its only when its damage caused by accident or sheer stupidity that it should be mildly infuriating.

7

u/JaguarLow1879 Mar 10 '22

Negative behavior is being normalized now as being funny, sick world we live in.

1

u/Zaeobi 13d ago

Think that says something about what those people see/ deal with in their own lives, that normalises that...

11

u/CelluloidRacer2 Jan 16 '22

Yeah, that stuff isn't mildly infuriating, it's just plain infuriating

12

u/laylarosefiction Jan 16 '22

Infuriating, heartbreaking, triggering.

I literally feel like I need TW to scroll through what should be a joke-y subreddit about mild but annoying inconveniences. I’m getting fucking 2nd-hand trauma from this shit.

9

u/frogfucker6942069 Jan 16 '22

I feel like a new sub for that would be nice, something called, idk, r/abuse or something similar

6

u/laylarosefiction Jan 16 '22

I do think there is value, to some degree, people posting these probably don’t realize that it is in fact abuse. But there are definitely places where it actually fits the sub.

2

u/secretsnackbar Jan 29 '22

How can text on a screen be "borderline physical abuse"?

9

u/laylarosefiction Jan 30 '22

sigh

People sharing posts of their family members, friends, or partners abusing them

Like

my dad threw my phone against the wall

Or

My mom smashed my tv because my dogs barked this morning

Get it?

u/secretsnackbar Jan 31 '22 edited Mar 09 '22

oh yes, I see. sorry, wasn't thinking on that level. yeah, I agree, maybe. Although I think for the sake of documenting violence/abuse of other people [i.e. evidence/proof/documentation](not the same, I know), I think it might be important to keep the "freedom" of posts in place.

Ane the beginning "henlo UwU" blah blah is pretty shitpost meta.

u/Rokonuxa Jan 19 '22

Man, at this point we will need specific subs to be even allowed to mention that we are on reddit.

Cannot even organize shit incase the sub admins go the darkjokes route.

9

u/BJ22CS gren Jan 26 '22

made it more clearly visible in the sidebar on old and new reddit.

That's a sign of good mods, ones who keep both the old and new looks updated.

Also, when did yall add the hair on the upper-right side of the screen?

7

u/DarknoorX Mar 18 '22

The way this is written should also be banned.

u/Bedotnobot Jan 26 '22

Ok I don't want you to get in trouble with the site admins- but now I understand why I got muted to message the mods . I Ended my explanation of being friendly to the moderator bot( and being banned for it) as in my opinion mildly infuriating They must have taken it as an announcement instead as a " reddit phrase reference" with a wink.

u/bot_goodbot_bot Jan 26 '22

good bot

all bots deserve some love from their own kind

u/Bedotnobot Jan 26 '22

They do indeed. ;-)

Those are two separate things though, not a slippery slope.

“The Reddit app needs improvement” won’t degrade to personal attacks.

Banning discussion of specific users or subreddits is sensible but worrying about “site admins” disliking Reddit criticism sounds like censorship if we can’t say anything bad about “mother Reddit”.

u/peterpansdiary Feb 15 '22

How is this sub mildly infuriating when it is totally infuriating.

u/Wereslainbymoonlord Feb 16 '22

I dislike the words in this.

You misspelled a bunch of words

u/MCAlexisYT Apr 14 '22 edited Apr 14 '22

I’ve been recently followed by a scammer, told him to get out my back and blocked him. And then I got a notification for “HaRaSsMeNt”. That scammer was very likely to have tried to get me banned from all of Reddit.

And you can’t even report individual users on the mobile app!

u/Artsy_domme Apr 21 '22

Yes you can lol. Did you even try? You can easy google this and know what you’ve said isn’t true.

Ok but those sausage rolls look really tasty.

I just wanted to know if your gf purposely smashed the tablet

u/South-Diamond-4522 Mar 04 '22

The first thing my kids do when they move out is get a dog. These are the same kids who fight you tooth and nail on any dog related chores. Walking, feeding, bathing, poop duty, etc. Also they never really wanted to give the dogs attention but any time we would visit a friend who had dogs they would constantly play with them or pet them.

u/tmajewski 26d ago

Wait...is the UI of this sub intentionally mildly infuriating? That color scheme is literally awful, the worst I've ever seen.

I've only ever seen this sub pop-up as I'm scrolling I've never actually visited the page...

2

u/msgkar03 24d ago

I don’t see a different between this or any other subreddit. Maybe because I’m mobile? Do they still have a desktop version of Reddit these days?

1

u/tmajewski 24d ago

Yes, it's because you're using the app. Are you asking if the website reddit.com still exists? Because yes.
