JU r/nottheonion, r/LateStageCapitalism & r/ABoringDystopia
By - Wizard-In-Disguise
I've done the same as you to be honest. Noticed myself getting dragged down by the negativity in my Reddit feed.
This is honestly a refreshing post to see on this sub. I feel like a lot of the r/justunsubbed posts are because someone disagrees with a post or gets annoyed with a reposted meme, but this is a good reason that isn’t malicious and helps people know a few subreddits to avoid to avoid negativity.
Carol you're a bot
I swear that most users that post in r/nottheonion have no idea what satire is. The majority of articles shared are mildly unusual at best. When something pops up in the news cycle that fits the sub, it gets posted a dozen times.
Most of the articles basically boil down to “Conservatives do something we disagree with.” It gets quite old after a few days
Yep, just another sub that r/politics has ruined
Imagine thinking conservatives shitting all over themselves and their own credibility and ideology at all times is /r/politics' fault
Oh wait, no need to imagine, we've a braindead fuck right here
Damn you really got him with your well place argument
As we can see here, the argument consists of “you brain dead fuck”. Wow. Such savagery.
It's not an argument, it's a statement of fact.
Learn what words are before using them incorrectly you ignorant slut
God damn bro, who hurt you?
It’s a troll. Their entire comment history is like that. Nobody can actually be that stupid lol
I've honestly never seen a reddit troll with the leftist ideology before. Usually they're conservative trolls. That comment chain was such an entertaining read.
lmao says the snowflake crying because I called out the fact that "his side" is the one making politics a team sport and is against democracy
Look in the mirror you troglodyte
Such a childish comment
Yeah, me correctly pointing out your delusions and lies, that's childish
You guys literally crying and flying into a seething cope rage because I point out what you're doing sucks, that's not childish at all
Come back when you've pulled your head out of your ass and are ready to stop denying reality
I think you need to take your own advice. Calling people names just because you disagree with them isn’t a statement of fact, it’s a sign of immaturity. I don’t think you’re ready for the internet just yet. Maybe you need to take some time to grow up and learn to accept the fact that not everyone is going to agree with you all the time.
Calling people names because they're fucking morons doesn't invalidate statements that are factual.
For example, if I say "the sky is blue you fucking retard" because you disagree with me about the color of the sky, according to you i'm wrong because I called you names? What kind of bullshit 6 year old logic is this? And you think what you just typed was smart? jesus fucking christ, you are the example of why the american education system is a complete failure.
> I don’t think you’re ready for the internet just yet.
Says the person crying that someone showed them the consequence to saying fucking retarded things is being called names by people who don't respect you or your opinion because you just proved you're an ignorant moron, I think you're the one who isn't ready, child
> to accept the fact that not everyone is going to agree with you all the time.
I don't care if people agree with me or not
I care that it's a fact that the redditor I originally replied to is **wrong** because he's a brainwashed propaganda spreading moron who wouldn't know reality apart from fox news propaganda if it shit in his mouth
Nice strawman. We’re talking about political opinions here, not basic facts. If you call someone a retard for thinking the sky isn’t blue, you may not be wrong, but you’re certainly not mature.
Calling someone names because they disagree with you is not a consequence of their beliefs, it just shows how much of a child you are.
If you can’t bring yourself to NOT act like a child for 5 minutes and try to have a reasonable discussion with me, you aren’t worth my time.
It's not a straw man, I literally quoted the thing you said that I was replying to so you couldn't falsely accuse me of straw manning you.
So now I've proven that you argue in bad faith and will just lie about things everyone can read and see you're lying about, why should I dignify your cunty lies with a response?
> If you call someone a retard for thinking the sky isn’t blue, you may not be wrong, but you’re certainly not mature.
First off, your definition of "mature" is subjective and arbitrary. Maturity is knowing when you can and when you can't insult people. This is one of those times you can, because the statement:
"/r/politics has ruined [x] sub"
Is pure far-right seethium cope, it's wanton denial of reality, it is peak idiocy, retardation, it's moron in its most pure form - it's utterly indefensible to anyone with more than a single-digit number of braincells, therefore if you say something stupid
And someone goes "that's stupid, you must be fucking retarded to think that"
They aren't just insulting you, they are *correctly* pointing out the *fact* that only someone mentally deficient would make the logical / argumental mistakes you absolute braindead clowns keep making.
So not only is this not debate club, (so none of what you said makes a blind bit of difference to the fact that i'm right (AND i dont give a fuck about your feelings, snowflake), so crying at me about insulting you is pointless), but if it was, you'd be disqualified first for bad faith and bad logic arguments
> If you can’t bring yourself to NOT act like a child for 5 minutes and try to have a reasonable discussion with me
LMAO, you're fucking delusional!!!! how can I possibly have a reasonable conversation with you when everything you say is based in anti-logical anti-reason bad-faith idiot arguments?
Grow up man
The average r/politics user
go fuck yourself braindead cunt
^ the average incel reject
me on my way to shit on my self
Recently there was post that was basically "Boomers bad, millenials good" and that sub ate this when that "study" didn't talk about millenials at all. But since it conformed to reddit's bias they circlejerked themselves dry how they are superior and they don't eat clickbait headlines like those stupid Boomers do while doing exactly the same thing they bash others for. Zero self-awareness.
Man, I hate Millennial. Gen Z, all the way.
I unsubbed when there were posts like 3 days in a row about cops and the comments were filled with ACAB related things. That was too political for a sub meant for comedy.
I unsubbed from r/nottheonion a while back because as it became popular, more people joined who didn't know what an Oniony headline was. They just posted stuff that sounded weird or someone getting what was coming to them.
The others I've filtered entirely, for the same reasons as yourself. There is far too much on this site that just feeds rage and misery one way or another
Why do you think redditors loved COVID and climate change so much? They love feeling miserable.
How TF do you turn off recommended subs on mobile. Im so sick of seeing r/politics and r/whitepeopletwitter be recommended after i fucking unsubbed from them
I use the Apollo app and I stopped getting recommendations
Seconding Apollo. I have hundreds of subs and keywords filtered out.
you can turn it off in your account settings
I don’t even go on the News or Popular page at all for that reason . I just stick to my home page because a lot of things were upsetting me. Take care of yourself:)
I like r/all because you can filter out the subs like this. Unfortunately I don’t think there’s a way to do that with r/popular
Stay away from anything political, it has zero impact on your life (Reddit posts aren’t changing the world get real) and all it does is expose you to bitter angry overly invested weirdos online on both the left and right
>(Reddit posts aren’t changing the world get real)
Oh man this one of the most truthful statements that I have ever heard about this website/app.
This post did change my world, so joke's on you!
Yeah, a grand majority of people posting abrasive and poorly formed political opinions here are either too young to vote, or were too busy smoking weed and watching Twitch streams to do so if they were old enough
>Reddit posts aren’t changing the world get real
Say it louder for those in the back
In my opinion one of the worst aspects of them is that the people who get the most upvotes often say something so disconnected from reality because they don’t know how complex political and bureaucratic systems work.
Political subs are the worst subs. In fact, the worst posts on Reddit are always politics-adjacent. It's just a bunch of people yelling about how their way is best and the other ways are dumb.
People will even fight online proxy wars for politicians they know nothing about. A few months ago I commented in a thread about California in r/news, as I am a native Californian, that Newsom was hated by everyone I knew. I got downvoted, and some brainless bastard tried to tell me that the guy who is currently facing the threat of recall was actually quite popular...
Newsom wasn't even above 50% popularity at the time, either.
This is really great solid advice I won’t take because I love my pitchfork and oil it every weekend.
I hate these communist subreddits taking over reddit
check out r/enoughcommiespam
I’m already on there
I love that you are Christian and communist even tho the USSR banned religion
The guy posts on r teenagers as well so hes either a teenager or a creep. Hes also the edgiest of the edgiest kind of communist lol
He prolly got brainwashed young by other commies. That’s usually where these young communist come from.
Im not edgy, unlike others i recognize the crimes made by the C”C”P and i actually read theory, im not one of those 8th grade kids who earrape spam the Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics anthem
I’m sorry if i have different views than you
Are you a bot or a fucking dork?
Lol commie bot getting mad
One of my best experiences was getting banned from r/conspiracy for calling the mods republican cucks. I unsubbed and haven't thought about the garbage that sub became since. Totally agree it's a good idea!
Those last 2 are marxist shitholes good thing you left.
i agree with u
So fucking cringe
I don't read the comments of any news r/ or political r/. I click the articles, read it and move on.
Damn I’ve been drifting back in too. I find myself migrating to the bottom of posts these days.
Time to re-curate my feed
r/latestagecapitalism sucks left that place while ago. People can’t even hold a discussion there and not I wasn’t an agitator. r/antiwork has got REALLY bad also now.
Antiwork is a fucking shithole filled with lazy bastards that would like to never lift a finger and get paid. Fuck those freeloading butthurt neckbeard weirdos.
It’s really not though. Some lazy people do exist buts it’s all different levels of people and ages. Majority of the people there work.
And their goal is to do away with that work and get paid for standing around. Preferably from home, while binge watching the nth netflix series.
Just have a look around there, the sub pops up now and then on r/all. It’s just sad.
I think if you don't want negativity you should also unsub from here haha
Have any good positive sub recommendations? I feel like my reddit is pretty negative.
r/skyporn is pretty good, just pictures of beautiful skies and sunsets
r/foodporn is the best subreddit for just chill posts honestly. It's tasty looking food. Also just subscribe to subreddits for hobbies/games you like
All they ever talk about is how bad things are. It gets tiresome.
Late stage Crapitalism shows the failures of crapitalism
Nah it’s users just show the failures of parenting
Honestly.. i need to do the same
Based, I gave up thinking of politics unironically. Its just a waste of time to think you could change anything. I'm past all that retarded larping lol
I might do this, actually.
off to bot r/wallstreetbets I hope
