** In 2015, the Subreddits for ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' swapped places for the day, similarly to 2013. So r/homestuck led to the Steven Universe Subreddit and vice-versa. This led to many confused fans on both ends. Both of the Subreddits [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] this. Steven Universe's "users here now" counter read "X confused homestucks" and Homestuck's read "X wondering if Steven Universe ever really existed in the first place".

** r/The_Donald often gets this reaction from those outside of it, especially since it got so popular, striking the front page numerous times. Based on the sheer amount of fanaticism its users have for Creator/DonaldTrump, many users are unsure exactly how much of it is a joke.

** Most of 4chan deeply despises Reddit, to the point where they've made hundreds of fake versions of Reddit's rage comics to troll themselves with. However, the hatred is generally one-sided with a few subreddits dedicated to documenting 4chan such as [[https://www.reddit.com/r/4chan r/4chan]] and [[https://www.reddit.com/r/classic4chan r/classic4chan]], and they're ambivalent at worst. Website/SomethingAwful hates Reddit for the same reason, on top of all the misogynistic, anti-theist, pedophilic, and creepy (not in the 'horror genre' sense) subreddits. They organized a giant raid to force Reddit's admins to shut down all the child porn subreddits.

** /r/shitredditsays, since it's a haven for snarky feminists, and really hates [[BlackComedyRape jokes about rape]]. The subreddit also has a low tolerance for BlackComedy, sex jokes, racial humor and transphobia. It flies both ways - mentions of SRS on other subreddits garners outrage and anger over "SJW"s.

Although Reddit it isn't a wiki, TheWikiRule is in full effect here, since subreddits can be (and are) made for pretty much anything. In fact, it is probably because of ''this'' very aspect of Reddit that it has proven to be actually ''more'' addictive than Wiki/TVTropes. Don't believe us? [[http://www.reddit.com/ Here,]] try it for yourself, but pdon't say we didn't warn you.
