...or any interest in basic human rights, hence the dozens of millions dead.

I've tried to do the same. Apparently doing a fully automated web search is kinda hard. Or really expensive if you want to do searches in bulk.

Exactly this. Rather ridiculous russian witchhunt going on when it's mostly just a few spammers trying to make a buck.

Classical liberalism is, yes. I think the term gets confused with lefty stuff, at least in the US.

My brother is still pissed that they banned him for daring to say something slightly critical. It's an entirely organic circlejerk.

I banned that one from /r/gifs a year ago because it was an obvious account farmer. They go wherever there's karma. That subreddit is pretty popular.

My impression has been that these account farmers probably use proxies or VPNs to hide their true origin, so reddit couldn't just ban a bunch of IPs to get rid of them. They mostly just fit the pattern of spammers and auction/clone accounts, and likely no way to tell where they actually come from.

The key thing being that the admins typically don't ban subreddits if the premise doesn't violate the sitewide rules (illegal stuff, underage, etc.) as long as the mods are active in removing content that breaks said rules when it occurs. Hate speech isn't against the site rules, so if the mods remove incitements to violence and threats/harassment/bullying and other unwelcome content, then it would be allowed by the current standard as I see it. I don't pay attention to this kind of silly drama, so I wouldn't try to argue one way or the other about what the mods actually do.

I've seen tons of subreddits like that. Most are account farmers or spammers. Once they get past a certain age and karma threshold, they can create a subreddit and allow all the spam they want, or they'll use it as an upvote farm akin to /r/FreeKarma4You. Until reddit bans their domain or account, that is.

Seriously. If I reported every single suspicious account, I'd probably have something in the realm of ten thousand in the last year from just /r/gifs alone. If they only caught 944 in a year, that means they had a rate of 2-3 per day across all of reddit. That's hardly anything.

Yes, posts in popular subreddits sourced from imgur or other popular places done in an effort to farm karma and eventually sell the account. See this.

I see a much different trend: A significant number of these account look like typical karma farmer/auction/clone accounts that copy posts from imgur and other sources in order to gain the appearance of a legitimate user, which are later auctioned off to whoever is willing to pay for them. Could be spammers, or crypto scammers, or propagandists, who knows. All I know is that I see plenty of the former two.

I banned the most prolific one of these accounts from /r/gifs over a year ago, because it was a typical account farmer. They go wherever there is karma to be made, so they post in popular subreddits. Most don't have that level of success, though. Some are probably different, but I think most have a purely financial motivation rather than a political one.

RtP summed it up better than I could.

Yes. I see tons of these kinds of accounts that use /r/politics to farm karma, through posts and often times comments copied directly from the respective article. They're auction/clone accounts, could be used for anything by whoever buys them.

This must be what dating is like for women. Just surrounded by pigs. by [deleted] in gifs

Your post breaks three rules:

  • Rule 4: You should have linked to https://i.imgur.com/RVborPs.gifv, not https://imgur.com/RVborPs

  • Rule 2: "This must be what _ is like" is an analogy. The title should describe the actual content. "Surrounded by pigs" would work, and you could make it into a joke along those lines as long as it also works in a literal sense.

  • Rule 3: The length is 20.04 seconds, just barely over the limit. You would need to edit it down to 20.00 or less. You can do so easily with gfycat or imgur's vidgif tool.

Automoderator can detect the rule 4 issue, but not a whole lot else. Sorry for the inconvenience.

She's got skills. by [deleted] in gifs

As they should ignore those, they are completely and utterly irrelevant when the issue is prejudice.

In my experience, people of every demographic are often quick to collectivize groups of people based on their superficial external attributes rather than see them as the individuals they actually are, who should each be praised or condemned for their own actions and not the actions of similar-looking people.

Regardless of the terminology you (or WaffleSparks) use, I think we can all agree that no one should be so quick to judge people en masse. Doing so inevitably leads to increased animosity and hatred between groups and further polarizes us all.
