Reddit, like Digg, allows comments to be voted up or down by other users. Sounds like a great idea, right? Well, below is an image of the most up-voted comment I have ever made on Reddit. It seems even Reddit users recognize how lame many comments are:
Hilariously, my most down-voted comment ever was one where I fairly innocently pointed out the fact that the story in question was months old … and just then making it to the front page:
I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from this. Don’t get me wrong: there’s a lot of great stuff on Reddit. But it seems like early comments on posts get modded up almost irregardless of their content, and a lot of non-offensive and at least semi-relevant ones go down.
Well this is getting truly hilarious: a whole cadre of Stumblers is so obsessed with AllSux they’ve been posting entire threads just to discuss this site! The funny thing is: I’ve outright encouraged them to come and post their inaccurate, ridiculous, childish and hilarious opinions in comments on AllSux. They talk about doing it in their forum, even say they’ve done it and brag about it, but none of them have: I don’t moderate out trash talk (come on, this is ‘AllSux.com!’).
I guess they’re afraid to voice their opinions beyond their little clique of mutually-supportive morons. Likewise, the person who started this flame war has accused me of all sorts of funny and ridiculous things. What I think that they don’t understand is: this is a site dedicated to things that suck – if no one trashed it, I’d be highly disappointed! Anyway, thanks crazy Stumblers for the unasked for attention – it doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Keep it coming!
UPDATE: One of the idiots messaged me saying that they had made a comment on Allsux. Now OK, I can see trying to fool their moronic friends, but hi: I moderate the comments on here, I think I’d know if someone had tried to make one! They also tried to make fun of me for ‘checking the forums’ to find their link. Are these guys computarded or what? Hi, look at the sidebar: see those fancy favicons? Those show where visitors are coming from. These guys should ‘check’ their heads. This isn’t rocket science.
UPDATE: Just when I think these guys can’t get any funnier, I get this mesages back: “However you found the forum it clearly shows you had the initiative to go and look at the link.” They then used this as the basis for an argument that I was lame for spending so much time finding/reading the forum post about this site. OK, here’s what’s funny to me about this: with the Romlet widget on the sidebar, it takes exactly one click to see an incoming source of traffic. That is exactly the same number of clicks that it takes this idiot to open their inbox each time I send them a message. What’s more: this person keeps coming back to Allsux to check for new posts about them or StumbleUpon. Let’s review: someone who is actively looking for my posts about them is criticizing me for clicking one link to a post they made about me? Whee this is fun!
From Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan, the problem of prisoner torture could be easily solved: put the video below on an endless loop until a suspect cracks and reveals all. If they don’t spill secrets within 24 hours you can rest assured that they are innocent. 2.4 million people have already seen it, apparently without catastrophic side effects, so at least it would be humane. Problem solved:
