** [[https://www.reddit.com/r/catsstandingup /r/CatsStandingUp]] takes this trope to its LogicalExtreme... PlayedForLaughs. Every title and comment must be exactly "Cat.". The CSS on the page even changes the usernames and subreddit tabs to "Cat.".



** Happened to the whole of reddit, too, in the form of Voat.

* ValuesDissonance: With the exception of subreddits explicitly dedicated to other countries or cities, Reddit is heavily American-slanted, and many American redditors will automatically assume that any other users who don't include very obvious mistakes in their written English are themselves American. As a result, things like asking for, say, rust prevention advice in /r/DIY will result in redditors suggesting you buy Rustoleum brand chemicals, or asking about bicycle grease in /r/bicycling might get you suggestions for Phil's Wood Bearing Grease (prompting the obvious question "Who's Phil? Should I e-mail him?"). To say nothing of legal advice...

** Reddit has one of these with 9gag, Reddit having an entire sub-reddit devoted to complaining about 9gag, while most members of 9gag aren't even aware of that Reddit dislikes them.
