i was about to move Colbert Bump to YMMV but it's locked.

"* Colbert Bump: Subreddits that focus on posting other Subreddits tend to do this sometimes. Example: r/WowThisSubExists"

why is it locked?

Personally I think listing /Mens Right's as bigoted sub is political flamebait but the page was locked with it intact.

While I disagree with your reasoning, it should be deleted for being redundant since it's covered under "militant people on both sides of the gender equation" entry.

That actually works better because the neutral and inclusive wording sways it away from being flamebait.

Someone should fix that so the version you mention is the only mention of the matter.

Why does Reddit's page still have a YMMV page when a mod claimed tvtropes doesn't want them when mentioning 4chan page's lack of one (I know something was up about that). Is this YMMV page grandfathered in?

Meanwhile, I wondered about the default thing so I asked somewhere and got this:


"People tend to complain about the default subreddits because the massive groupthink tends to result in lowest-common-denominator content. You may enjoy them for a while but eventually you'll just grow so tired of how lame the default subs are and you'll unsub and never look back. It happens."

Just some insight.

An example here (Brain Bleach), and possibly others, are for In-Universe Examples Only. Could someone take care of that, please?

Better ask here.

I hate to be one of those stuffy tropers, and I'm pretty disgusted with violentacrez and the Reddit admins myself, but the amount of page space dedicated to the jailbait/creepshots/violentacrez debacle seems kind of disproportionate. Pulled and replaced with a shorter version:

  • r/jailbait, and any related subreddits. This got worse when Something Awful investigated, and found the following details:
    • violentacrez, the person who created these subreddits and a known pedophile/child porn distributor, was friends with many of the higher ups.
    • The mods knew full well that these subreddits were distributing child porn, but did nothing about it because it was against free speech.
    • The threads complaining about these subreddits were swiftly removed.
    • The servers were run by Amazon, which specifically stated in their rules that it was against the rules to post offensive content.
    • Eventually, the subreddits were deleted and it was made a rule not to post CP, but the fact that they had to be pressured into doing it rather than deleting it on the horrible content alone is questionable at best, and despicable at worst.
    • Deja vu when US national news reported a substitute teacher fired for posting upskirt shots of his students on r/creepshots.
  • Gawker media. A number of subreddits have banned links to Gawker sites after violentacrez deleted his account when Adrian Chen wrote an expose of him exposing his real identity. Many have pointed out that this will hurt him in real life. Michael Brutsch, the man behind Violentacrez, was fired from his job almost immediately after the article hit the Web.

Changed "doxxing and departure" to just "doxxing" btw, because violentacrez has apparently been posting as mbrutsch too? I'm not the best to ask, I tend to stick to r/nocontext and some of the fandom subreddits.

Speaking of Memetic Mutation, I see "banned from r/Pyongyang" fairly often but I'm not sure how that one got started. Is it a meme?

Edit: Never mind, looked it up, found my answer.
