u/Wargasm69 Sep 25 '22

Where’s that reference from

6

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

Its a quote from and the central thesis of the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski's manifesto.

He apes a lot of eco-anarchist and anarcho-primitivist talking points from the era, many of which are easy to agree with. But the whole thing falls apart when you look at the tactics of Kaczynski's praxis - e.g. leaving pipe bombs in dumpsters. Lmao

3

u/Wargasm69 Sep 25 '22

What are those talking points that would be easy to agree with? Is there a good research this stuff? Like easy to digest.

7

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

He raises some compelling points about how industrialization devalues and degrades human life and destroys the planet.

The manifesto itself is quite approachable in its diction and flow of ideas. Easily approachable for sure. Which is an odd thing to say about a spree killers manifesto I know... I'd say just give the first section a read so you get the flavor of his mindset and leave it at that.

the dude was at one point a brilliant mind but got fucked in the head -- which is itself a pretty fucking crazy story

I'd say if you want a better sense of his ideas, look into the history of Earth First! and Deep Green Resistance. They're the groups he was inspired by and is also pretty approachable.

Always ask yourself:

"What are the chances that someone eager to start an internet argument is actually worth arguing with?"

The exceptions to this pattern absolutely prove the rule

102

u/AbeRego Sep 25 '22

Essentially, I use the comments, and subsequent debates, to help myself better understand how I feel about certain issues. It's basically an interactive journal.

23

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

I'd file you under "exceptions that prove the rule." Most people just wanna shout down everyone and anyone in my experience

23

u/AbeRego Sep 25 '22 edited Sep 25 '22

I've had some interactions that have caused me to change my mind, although I can't name one off hand. That's certainly not the norm, though. However, when was the last time you had an argument/debate in person that's changed your mind? That not really how things work. We all come into a conversation with our own preconceived notions about what's correct, and it's extremely difficult to away sway someone from those stances under any circumstances. This isn't something that's unique to reddit. This is just how humans behave.

17

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

I disagree. [Ironic I know] People absolutely interact in fundamentally different ways on online anonymous forums. They're way meaner and more strident.

Social media is a bull horn, not a forum. Occassionally you get some people who have their ears. Occassionally you get folks who speak with respect.

Not saying it never happens. I've had enough really fine, valuable exchanges online. That's why i come back. But I've had it go the other way quite a bit too. To the point that i sometimes think about swearing it off altogether.

I'm either an addict or an optimist. Maybe a little of both

10

u/AbeRego Sep 25 '22

This is also true, but not necessarily for the reasons you might think. It's not necessarily just because of anonymity or because it's easier to be mean. I think an overlooked fact is that the concentration of interaction is much higher online than in person. On reddit, I can fire of 10 different comments in 20 minutes, on radically different subjects. There are endless entry points for conversation/debate.

Take our exchange, for example. Under what real-world circumstances could this conversation possibly have happened? Drinking at a party when Reddit randomly comes up? Maybe... But it's extremely unlikely, because most of our social interactions are based around some sort of structured event/environment. The types of dialogue that occur on social media are different because they don't emulate real-world interaction. The environment is completely different.

10

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

Under what real-world circumstances could this conversation possibly have happened?

As a guy who chats up strangers at the bar you'd be surprised the sorts of stuff that comes up after a couple two three

But yeah I think you're on to something naming the touch and go/shallow/hyper casual/etc. nature of internet interactions definitely has an effect. It's much easier to miscommumicate or cross a line we arent aware of if we're hopping quickly from thread to thread.

Especially i notice myself getting into trouble when shitposting and I duck into something that folks are charged up about.

Gotta say this has been a most redeeming interaction. Somehow fitting that it should come from an offhand remark about reddit being kinda mean sometimes. I love it

I’d say about 20% of disagreements I personally have on Reddit end with well-wishes. Not an exceptionally high number when you think about it, but more than you’d expect. I think a lot of it comes out of what subreddit you’re on and how effectively you can establish it as a proper conversation.

It goes without saying that toxic environments lead to toxic interactions, but much more interesting is the latter. If I move in at the earliest possible point and do the digital equivalent of standing next to someone in conversation, it can help ease tension a lot. This is as opposed to doing the equivalent of facing someone head-on and starting them down. I’d say that would be something like insulting their intelligence or ability to understand you, actively challenging them whenever you can, and just generally trying to forcefully take the conversation over.

I’m struggling to pinpoint exactly how I do it, but I hope I’ve been thorough enough. Last attempt: I get on their good side by making it seem like I’m going in the direction they want, but at the same time I don’t let them walk all over me. A lot of it is out of my hands, but at least I can increase the odds of them not hating me.

2

u/YoStephen Sep 25 '22

a lot of it comes out of what subreddit you’re on and how effectively you can establish it as a proper conversation.

You're on to something here. I've done some reflecting based on some comments I've received in this thread. This touches on two behaviors that I, likely, could adjust to avoid unpleasant interactions: selection of community and taking proactive steps to demonstrate good faith participation rather than being strident and forceful in my self presentation.

These are areas where I suspect I sometimes get myself into trouble.

20%

But even still it only goes so far. It's too bad that the digital nature of interactions makes stuff like state of mind kind of hard to gauge.

Great points, either way though!!

Last argument i had was with a guy wanting to justify systemic corruption just so that he could still potentialy benefit from it should his daughter later down her went to work in politics.

I should have known better, it was on twitter. At least on reddit it's mostly shitposting and everybody is doing it for the sake of the noble art of trolling, not because they are literal trolls.

Also, reddit isn't a shithole, it should be a pisshole as demonstrated by the opening statement of this thread. This whole debate is a travesty based on an illogical conclusion to a perfectly valid argument.

Reddit is terrible if you don't manage your subs and just spend all day on /r/all. If you use the site that way, it's just asking for a bad time.

This might sound obvious to some, but the key to enjoying Reddit is finding subs that aren't mainstream dumpster fires, and that serve your interests. Every sub has it's own unique community, so the smart play is the leverage and focus on those communities. It makes a world of difference.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to return to /r/funny because I hate myself.

I was banned from a ‘legal UK’ sub because a woman was asking for advice on being strip searched by a bouncer at a festival. The reply was apparently from a ‘regular contributor’ saying that bouncers could strip search the opposite sex without any recourse. I replied how wrong that was with a link to the actual law and was downvoted to hell. I was also banned from the subreddit because I clearly went against a ‘mod who contributed more than I do’

u/Guybrush_Creepwood_ Sep 25 '22

the majority of reddit is just an angry mob where feelings matter more than facts.

It's ironic because it's exactly the sort of mentality that r/all types shit on "the other side" for in all political discussions, yet they'll do exactly the same thing with information they don't like hearing. Aggressive ignorance is always the overriding mentality on all vaguely popular subs.

Dude, that seems to have been true at one time, but the subs I used to like seem to get caught up and dragged down into the swamp that is Reddit.

Being a bad mod seems to be something that spreads virally. Maybe it's the structural nature of the site that encourages mods to be terrible. I dunno.

It certainly helps to curate one's Reddit experience, but there's only so much that curation can do.

A lot of news and specific country subs are moderated by the same people. There's a coordinated effort, those people are likely employed by intelligence agencies and certain governments, or just certain special interest groups.

The small subs are often worse and filled with the worst kind of know-it-all, gate-keeping, obsessives that ruin it for any other participants that don’t dedicate their life to the topic at hand.

There are the rare subs where that’s not true, but I feel that size is not the most important factor for the good subs but rather, moderation quality, demographic attracted to the topic (age for example), and diversity of the participants.

It is shocking how frequently I see “blocked user” in comments. Clearly, the trolls comment like crazy, fishing for some dumb sap to bicker with them. It is also shocking how much happier I am without reading comments from the 200 or so people I have blocked.

Best way to enjoy Reddit is to never read responses to your comments.

Is it weird that in a decade of being on his dumb site, I’ve never once noticed someone’s username? Like, I don’t bother checking profiles, and almost never even reply to someone let alone talk with anyone regularly?

I did that at one point, but even that is a waste of time. Say your piece until it's no longer interesting to you and then move on. If someone annoys you particularly badly, just tag them as a moron so you never have to waste your time with again. I've come across plenty of extremely dumb comments that I would have otherwise engaged but I saw the user tagged and realized "oh it's a moron, just downvote and move on."

u/heart_under_blade Sep 25 '22

i only do that if their replies are really stupid or inflammatory

feels like a huge waste of time to check everybody

This site is awesome in so many ways and ridiculously horrible in others.

I was an early adopter from Digg (under the first 100).

I’ve had numerous accounts banned and told “just use a different account” from Admins.

I was a mod (the creator) of a dozenish subs and gave up. I handed them over because I have a life outside of Reddit.

Banned on those accounts.

Who decides the ban process?

u/TheLondonPidgeon Sep 25 '22

When I joined there were people who’d been around for so many years and it felt like I’d missed the best of reddit.

Looking back, this place was an actual utopia compared to now.

Still here wasting my fucking time though 😂

It’s still good, just not what it was.

u/100YearsWaiting2Shit Sep 25 '22

This made me emotional. I've only been here for 2 years yet reddit has changed so much. I don't even get stream notifications on here anymore no matter how much I fuck with settings. I used to love reddit streams so much

HAPPY CAKE DAY by the way

u/OneOverX Sep 25 '22

This happened to me. Someone followed and harassed me for weeks because I called an alfredo recipe alfredo despite the fact that it used cream. The original alfredo sauce was very different from what is mainstream in the US today but it also requires cooking technique that the overwhelming majority of people don’t have and we get the same results by using cream. Anyway, this person was really upset that I called it alfredo. We both ate multiple suspensions for reporting each other’s various PMs. I still put cream in my alfredo sauce though.

Fuckin pointless to argue about "taste" anyway. Its pretty subjective no?

u/NotoriousMOT Sep 24 '22

I just had a convo few days ago with someone who insisted that if he got a slice of pizza that had rabbit shit on it, he wouldn’t draw the conclusion that the rest of the pizza would likely have rabbit shit on it and would proceed to look for uncontaminated slices. Granted, it was a metaphor but admitting to something like that just to “win” an argument is what reminds me of how normal even the most deranged of us can appear on this site.

u/Horrific_Necktie Sep 25 '22

Never put your argument in their hands. Dipshits like that would agree or say anything to win an argument.
