The suffering is only temporary and lasts way less than the prosperity that follows. In Gamora's lifetime alone, her planet went from devastated by the massacre to thriving, and that thriving will probably last a lot longer than her current age in years.

We actually don't have any evidence that this is true other than Thanos saying that's what happened.

There's not really a reason to doubt him, though. The thing about this Thanos is that he's so mad/insane, he's certain that what he's doing is absolutely the right thing. That thought is probably bolstered by him seeing successful results.

level 7

Don’t know if it’s even possible to tell anymore but is it a parody sub, or are some of these people serious?

level 8

They're (almost) all serious.

level 7

Will say, the height issue is real though. The rest is pretty baseless. Not that it should result in blaming women, though. I'm super short, but I get it, I'm not attractive, and lost the genetic lottery, but that's just life and not anyone else's fault, nor is it anyone else's responsibility to make me feel better.

Of course, being able to feel some sort of validation would be nice. Most don't know it, but there's a ton of research out there about how the socioeconomic divide between short and tall men is greater than the gaps between race and sex. It is brutal. But it is a reality we cannot fault anyone for.

Most just can't accept the fact that it's entirely likely they will die alone. This is evolution at work. We are unattractive.

For a more quantitative albeit anecdotal response, of around 2600 first messages sent when I attempted online dating, I got around 1500 responses stating something along the lines of "you seem like a great guy but you're too short for me, but good luck!"

Which is quite the contrary to the norm where people just don't message back at all.

Granted, I am picky. It's likely fair to say most of these men are probably similarly picky, bitter, damaged, and unwilling to improve upon themselves with their defeatism.

Because their wrists are too... thin? Wtf is wrong with these people srsly

Why though?

Should we also ban the extreme left subs?

I feel like people say these things just to parrot and meme others, almost a form of virtue signalling.

I mean do you REALLY want subs to start getting banned?

That sub drives a lot of traffic, traffic that will leave if it gets banned. It wont get banned, that's the nuclear option.

level 5

If a leftist sub is breaking Reddit’s rules by brigading other subreddits then sure. There are plenty of toxic subreddits that need to be snapped out of existence or at least to have the mod teams be removed and replaced. Reddit did got a lot better when those previously toxic and rule breaking subs were removed. The subs that are shitty but keep to themselves don’t get banned. Subs that spread their flavor of filth do.

Also, no specific subreddit was mentioned. But it’s interesting to see your insecurities.

Its interesting how reddit general agreement is that banning a subreddit because they don't agree with is okay, and then making 10+ subreddits to make fun of those users is also okay. Banning a subreddit doesn't make someone change their views, now you're no longer aware of their views or how they may have gotten worse, or even have a attempt at changing their mind.

The Incels vs Inceltears is a interesting one, I'm sure some of those users aren't the highest tiers of humans, and bet some of them even have some mental problems. Solution, Ban them, create a subreddit to make fun of them. Everyone being Ok with that is odd to me. With that being said. I find it hard to believe that those users didn't migrate somewhere else.

If you don't like a subreddit, just filter it out. That way when you want to see someone else's views you can go into their space and look for yourself

Better the devil you know, than the devil you don't.

Listen, I don't care what subreddit anyone bans, if it promotes violence/hate it should be banned. But I think its naive to think banning a subreddit is changing anyones ideals they've probably had for a long time, and I think reddit bullies people they don't agree with

level 5

This sounds like a reasonable argument, and maybe they will reconvene in another place.

However, allowing them to have one place like that allows their numbers to grow. If it's shut down, then maybe their community splinters into smaller ones on multiple different sites. And then new people have a harder time finding the new place.

Your argument is like cops seeing a mob growing and saying "Welp, they'll just meet somewhere else if we break this up now. Better not do anything"

This is late, but your logic is both right and wrong. In the case of incels, it greatly splintered the community and they still haven't really recovered. You could say that the black pill is what was nuked, but as far as the gang thing, history does show that you should take more consideration in dealing with them. Look at Chicago and the ongoing aftermath of the police cracking down on gangs, the leadership in particular. As far as how Reddit should work, I think we should learn from 4chan since they've had to deal with shit like that constantly and quarantine boards seem to work for them.

Incels was disgusting, and promoted rape, violence (and domestic abuse, since at times it can even be viewed separately), and misogyny. So, yeah, it sure as hell deserved to be banned, and the only people who "aren't okay with that" are the ones making hackeneyed comments about "free speech" (which, in some cases, might as well mean "I low-keyed agreed with them but don't want to admit it publicly"). Violence and harassment? Against the rules.

Now, making subreddits to make fun of them? Not against the rules. If you want to be nitpicky, it's not necessarily against the rules to make fun of a subreddit or community. If you want to get really nitpicky, it's no where near on the same level as harassment and promoting rape, so the two aren't nearly as comparable (by extension, comparing the two is incredibly ridiculous). It's immature, childish, and not that funny in the long run, but it's not against the rules.

As far as changing people's views go, it actually does measurably reduce the amount of hate speech on Reddit. See here for my comment on this exact same subject, or see here for the original post on the general idea.

banning a subreddit because they don't agree with is okay

that isn't the issue here. Yes, many people dislike the subreddit, no argument there. It's the support of violence, racism, and brigading that comes from there that justifies banning the sub. These are rules that Reddit itself has, which they are failing to enforce.

making 10+ subreddits to make fun of those users is also okay.

Both sides do this. Take a look at the mods of TD and then see what other subs they are mods for. Both sides are making multiple subs to support their side and antagonize the others.

Better the devil you know, than the devil you don't.

Filtering subs and doing nothing else is a stupid idea. There are countless subs that exist that you probably don't know about. If a subreddit is super vile/racist/etc, they should be allowed to thrive simply because you don't know about it?

Ehhh. Kinda sorta. If it limits a known safe harbor and tool of communication used by trolls, foreign agents, potential terrorists and nefarious and ill meaning people, then I would see no issue with it.

I'm a conservative but at least I've got the sense to do some critical thinking an analysis of the subreddit (which I'm subbed to). I can see a ton of reasons why this sub should be banned and have seen multitudes of violations.

It's gotten milder recently with the newfound awareness of foreign agencies using it as a tool of discord, but I still could see why it should be heavily scrutinized or removed pending review.

Thank you! I think that's why I haven't seen it - I'm not big on superhero movies. I like action/fantasy but I didn't grow up reading comics so I don't really care about superheroes. It sounds pretty good though, judging by this weird thing it's generated. I might watch it sometime.

level 7

That's the beauty of it. You don't have to be big into comic-books for it to be a worthwhile experience. You may not end up understanding some of the character history, but the story of Thanos himself is told perfectly. Plus it's not even finished being told in film form!

I'd be interested to read about your reaction, once you've seen it.

level 8

Wait, I know you said I don't need to be into comic books, but... I remember something about that the Avengers movie brought together a load of plotlines from other, individual superhero movies - would I need to watch those before I watch The Avengers?

level 9

You won't be able to enjoy Infinity War by itself nearly as much without at least first watching Avengers 1 and Avengers 2 (Age of Ultron). And maybe Black Panther, since he and his home country feature so heavily in Infitiy War.

But you don't need to read any comic books at all. I've never been a comic book reader, but I've absolutely loved the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The regular films don't require you to have any knowledge of these characters' backstories. The team up films probably do, but you can get that knowledge by watching just the single-character films.

level 9

The story of the movie itself is pretty standalone, but it kind of expects you to know who all the characters are and instead focuses on giving character development to the villain. You can probably see it and have it make sense for the most part, but you probably won’t get as much out of it as someone who’s seen every single movie. If you’re interested, I’d at the very least watch the first Avengers movie (and maybe Avengers 2, but it kinda sucks and the only thing it really does is introduce two characters who play a major role in Infinity War), Guardians of the Galaxy (again, the second movie is optional but it’s worth seeing), Captain America: Civil War, and Thor Ragnarok.

level 9

I remember something about that the Avengers movie brought together a load of plotlines from other, individual superhero movies - would I need to watch those before I watch The Avengers?

Load of plotlines is an understatement.

I've never seen any of them. The idea of trying to watch -- and understand, and enjoy -- this most recent movie... exhausts me.

level 10

There’s no chance you would understand it without seeing at least half of the recent marvel films. I skipped one avengers movie and it started a cascading effect of me missing key info in all of the subsequent marvel films I’ve watched.

level 9

It would give you context into the overall universe, and I think some people misunderstood my intentions with my comment. I'm talking about the movie from the angle of the Thanos storyline. I kind of figured people would understand, considering where we're having this conversation, but I guess some people didn't connect those dots.

Even in the context of the movie, Thanos, his motives, and the impact of his actions are pretty much news to almost all the characters involved. It's the tale of an existing universe, but the introduction of a new baddie that both the viewer and the heroes are essentially meeting directly for the first time.

level 8

Ignore this fool /u/Pesto_Power. If you haven't seen the previous 18 films you'll get nothing out of this one. And it's only half a story anyway which they'll obviously retcon anyway. If going to the cinema is such a treat for you then go and see a decent standalone film.

So there's no limit to what you think people should be allowed to say on this site?

So you think people should be allowed to create multiple alts to spam PMs telling other users to kill themselves? You think hate groups should be allowed to organize violent attacks unfettered? You think this site should allow users to post identifying information of others so that they can harass them?

Just no rules whatsoever in the name of avoiding censorship? I guess that's a valid and consistent belief system, but I imagine you'd suddenly feel differently if someone published your personal information and the harassment was directed at you. Can't punish the people doing that though, wouldn't want to censor them.

I never really thought about there being a reddit HQ. I mean of course there is. But I always imagined it was just some dark basement somewhere, sort of like the amazon start up.

I was part of the ban and I had/have no interest in seeing the movie LOL

Now imagine how fun it'd be to ban an entire sub? Or better yet, not strip someone else of their right to kill the monster they created themselves because add revenue?

The Marvel Studios posts and subreddit posts are upvote manipulated to the front. I guess its pretty fun if you can make money out of it. No one likes ads on the front page. It looks even worse when they are reddit endorsed.

level 4

WTF.

You really think posts about the most popular movie franchise of the decade constantly breaking box office records couldn't possibly be frontpaged constantly? Sheesh.

Are you kidding? This is the most organic Reddit event in ages. Maybe even ever.

level 5

It reminds me of the "organic" The_Donald sub effort a couple years back. They used the same reddit manipulation tequniques that Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox use. Up vote manipulated content to the front, bot comments, shill account defenders. Yea. This shit suck's and it's going to bite them in the ass as public mood sours against companies involved in social media deceptions like these.

Now ban the white supremacists

Why not take the work done on the Thanos bot and tweak it to ban people who post hate speech? It'll be both fun and actually useful.

level 3

I'm entirely curious what the initial reaction was from you guys to the idea of users wanting to be banned on purpose.

level 3

Stop kidding, we know admins have been having fun with banning people for no real reason for years.

It would be cool if they banned more deserving subreddits, too, and not just for fun.

Yeah! Do half of /r/philadelphia next.

It'll be worth it to put a dent in our racist trolls / political astroturf.

But then it wouldn't be a fair representation of philly.
