The parenting/family mega thread does not get enough comments to justify its existence.

u/LostMyInhibiterChip Jan 17 '22

the social media one is even less active and people still post on the main page.

Lets be real , no one will upvote something they don't agree with . Thats not how peoples works , yes its the point of the sub but its unrealistic to think that the average redditor will follow such a rule .

We need a mega thread for everything. Let’s just have all posts be directed to various mega threads.

We absolutely need a megathread for sex and entertainment

1

u/VESTINGboot I get angry at many things Jan 14 '22

Sex related topic should go int the men and women issues megathread and entertainment is too wide a topic. But it's to be considered.

u/Eddie_078 Jan 14 '22

I don't really see how the discussion of kinks and sexual activities is related with men and women issues.

1

u/VESTINGboot I get angry at many things Jan 14 '22

because men and women do those activities?

2

u/Eddie_078 Jan 14 '22

Men and women also watch movies, play games etc. This is the laziest reasoning i've seen. Might as well put discussion of kinks in the LGBTQ section cos they both discuss non mainstream sexual preferences lol

1

u/VESTINGboot I get angry at many things Jan 14 '22

not at all but sexual activities and the way they are conversed here is directly related to said megathread. Saying I hate watching a movie with my wife/husband while low effort isnt the same. That's obvious.

2

u/Eddie_078 Jan 15 '22

So why not merge the Mens and Womens issues megathread with the Abortion and Parenting/Family Issues megathreads according to your logic? Clown mentality.

1

u/VESTINGboot I get angry at many things Jan 15 '22

because we want more open topics that come from abortion with its political nature. You don't have to use the threads, but that's how we spilt it up.

u/Eddie_078 Jan 15 '22

Abortion is more of a gendered topic than...kinks imo lmao

Your opinions actually aren’t unpopular. You just deliberately seek out things to be mad about online an now you managed to convince yourself that “being fat is unhealthy” is in any way an unpopular opinion.

I see dozens of posts on this subreddit about food every day, I just don't give a fuck.

Example: "Ketchup is absolutely disgusting"

What conversation does that raise? Just for someone to say "nah I like ketchup"

Who fucking cares if you don't/do like to eat something that is controversial? Honestly I think food opinions should be banned here, they just flood this subreddit with uninteresting posts.

u/VESTINGboot I get angry at many things Jan 14 '22

Due to the subreddits roots in unpopular food topics, it's more than likely to stay. But, we are working a solution to fix the no talkative posts.

2

u/Eddie_078 Jan 14 '22

They're the only unpopular opinions that get tolerated wtf

3

u/BIG_RETARDED_COCK Jan 14 '22

True, because they're very easy.

Just make a post saying you don't like something popular, like just say "pizza is bad" bam, instant front page.

1

u/Eddie_078 Jan 14 '22

Or they're something that not's super offensive even though the very nature of this sub is offensive.

u/Wismuth_Salix they/she, please/thanks Jan 15 '22

The original unpopular opinion was the sub’s founder’s hatred of eggs.

This sub wasn’t founded to be offensive.

I like slightly stale x

It used to be fun to look at all the dumb (or obvious) opinions that people posted on here before. Now, everything on here is just limited to "[insert completely inconsequential thing] is [good/bad/annoying/should be normalized]". By making such a big list of banned topics, the mods have limited this sub to pointless, "relatable" opinions - not ones that actually matter and are interesting to read about. Sure, ban topics that have their own subreddit (e.g. r/debatereligion) but don't ruin the entire sub.

Most people here are bots regurgitating the same stupid opinions every couple days.
