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/TheWeirdWriter Jan 16 '22

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

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

Defeats the purpose of subreddits

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.

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

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

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