See what I mean? Here we have our left-wing Ben Shapiro, more concerned about owning those evil right-wingers than stating their own truthfully and clearly.

Dude, I was trying to make an argument on the merits of defunding police based on actual research in another thread, while you were busy gloating about how stupid and ignorant the "communists" were and how bad CHAZ was.

This shit was a toxic echo chamber. Burn it.


2000 toxic echochambers? Sorry, but no. There were many subreddits encouraging legit debate on there, and others were meme communities.

Take r/ConsumeProduct, for instance. It was mostly an anti-corporate, anti-mainstream meme subreddit. But because of some particularly edgy anti-consumerism stances, the whole thing got canned.


Oh sweet summer child you don't know just how far the cancer of echo chambers has spread. 2000 echo chambers just on Reddit is just a drop in the bucket.

I can't say on r/consumeproduct beacuse I didn't visit it before it was nuked but if you think 2000 is alot of echo chambers you really don't know just how far this cancer has spread to not only American democracy but to almost all of the worlds politics.

Okay. Your initial post didn’t seem to imply that, but I figured you did.

I mean, my inner populist cringes hard at using majority/minority as a universal metric for who deserves protection from harmful speech.

Dude, I'm as bitter a summer child as can be. And it is for that exact reason I believe that 2000-subreddit banwaves don't happen without the admins taking anybody they simply don't like out of the picture along with the actual echos.

I mean, r/TheDonald was already a dead husk after getting quarantined, remodded etc, so I don't mind that - but tons of subreddits simply posting edgy memes or dissenting from Reddit's official stance were undoubtedly wiped away.

And besides, it's not like there aren't actual echochambers left - like r/worldnews, or r/politics - but considering that every "cheetobad" post results in people with too much available money buying up tons of expensive virtual awards from Reddit, of course they're not going to ban those.

Anyway, how about a game?
