Mission accomplished! Your banned.

Literally the top post in the sub right now...

I don't think this sub means what you think it means.

We know, this is the 5th time this has been reposted here in 2 days. http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/hitmanimals/comments/8h7puk/hitcat_in_training/

user reports: 1: Title is incorrect. Only $12.5 billion was left to charity. The rest was left to his children.

Someone doesn't read so good. He amassed $46 billion. That is literally the 1st full sentence. Half of that ($23 billion) went to charity the other half to his children.

You guys should really read the article. I just skimmed it and I still managed to pick up that it was a guitar that was going to be raffled/auctioned off or whatever, to help raise those £50,000.

But ma false outrage and smug sense of security in tearing down someone else for not doing what I think is enough!

Yes, we know this is .00000000000000000001% of their net worth and if you had donated $100 it would be more meaningful because that is more of your networth than the $500,000 is to Gucci and this is only a publicity grab and the publicity they get is more valuable to them than the $500,000 they donated.

But here is the thing. You didn't donate $100 did you? and even if you did it wouldn't help nearly as many people as that $500,000 would it? and I am sure that the people receiving benefits from that $500,000 don't care if some company gets free publicity, oh and the Cause gets free publicity too, which drives more donates.

TL:DR

Stop complaining that someone did something good and go outside and do something good yourself.

Good thing you said they got rapped. If you said they got raped I might be required to ban you for being a dick. Who doesn't enjoy a good rap song?

Jesus christ, what’s up with all the salt in the comments? At least he is donating money. He could also keep all the money for himself. Also looks like a lot of people are overestimating the amount of money this guy makes.

Anytime any story is submitted about someone giving money this sub goes nuts saying they are only doing it for themselves and the free publicity they get more than offsets the money they give. Serioulsy, there are stories of celebrities giving away tens of millions of dollars and people say "that is less than 10% of their net worth, it means nothing to them. If I donated $50 it has more meaning because $50 is a significant amount of money in my life." Meanwhile they are not even giving 50 cents.

Bunch of savages in this sub.

So is this comment. The guy that said it first in this thread is at negative 17 and yet you thought you would say it again. Bold move cotton.

Let’s see if it pays off.

That is fair.

Last line of the article...
"Sometimes, Reddit can be more than a flaming dumpster. But only sometimes."
Really Mashable? What the fuck.

Remember the time that Reddit "found" the Boston Marathon bomber? How about u/Violentacrez? No? What about r/fatpeoplehate and the many spin offs?

Mashable got this one right.

Honest question, how did you see this playing out?

Well generally rocket thrust after liftoff propels objects upward. So to uplifting places.
